More Than 20 Republican Governors and Top Statewide Officials Reject Trump's 'Rigged' Rhetoric

"This election is not rigged, and it's irresponsible to say that it is," said South Carolina governor Nikki Haley.
The day after Donald Trump refused to say if he would accept the results of the election after making claims of "large-scale voter fraud" and a "rigged" system, more than 20 top Republican elected officials—including governors and secretaries of state—told THE WEEKLY STANDARD they have faith and confidence in the fairness of next month's elections in their respective states.
"This election is not rigged, and it's irresponsible to say that it is," South Carolina governor Nikki Haley told TWS. "Faith in the democratic process is one of America's greatest strengths, and it's more important than the outcome of any election."
In Kansas, Governor Sam Brownback says he agrees. "Governor Brownback has repeatedly stated his full faith in the electoral system, a process leading to the peaceful transition of power that is central to a self-governing people like ours," a Brownback spokesperson said.
Other governors specifically voiced conviction in the fairness of their state's elections processes. Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin, once a rumored Trump vice-presidential pick, said that she has "much confidence in Oklahoma's voting system." Spokespeople for Idaho governor Butch Otter and Utah governor Gary Herbert also said that the governors have "utmost confidence" in their states' election processes.
