Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran is saying that he’ll accept this year’s election results and will encourage all candidates for office to do the same.
The Kansas Republican issued a statement Thursday in response to GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that election fraud could cost him the White House. Trump wouldn’t agree during the final presidential debate Wednesday night to accept the results.
Moran said American democracy depends on the country’s ability to elect leaders in a fair and open process. He said for more than 200 years, people have respected the outcome of elections.
Moran added: “I will accept the will of Kansans and Americans, and encourage all candidates running for public office to do the same.”
