Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), who defeated Democrat challenger Wendy Davis, joined some of his Republican colleagues in calling for a recount, audit, and full review of the election. He stated Monday morning that “fewer than 100,000 votes total” separate former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump in key swing states.
Right now – there are fewer than 100,000 votes total – out of almost 150 million cast – separating AZ, GA, WI, & PA (plus other close states like NV) with a number of lingering questions. Recounting, auditing, & a full review is necessary. Patience. #StandUpForAmerica

As of Monday, Biden continued to hold the edge in several states — roughly 17,000 in Arizona, 10,600 in Georgia, 36,100 in Nevada, and 45,000 in Pennsylvania. That comprises roughly 109,000 votes. However, legal challenges are underway, and the Trump campaign has maintained that the president will emerge victorious in Arizona once all legal ballots are finally tabulated.
Several GOP lawmakers have made it clear that they support President Trump and his efforts to ensure election integrity.
The media do not get to determine who the president is. The people do. When all lawful votes have been counted, recounts finished, and allegations of fraud addressed, we will know who the winner is
