GOP Lawmaker Breaks With Trump, Will Oppose Delaying Election

GOP Representative Adam Kinzinger has responded to President Trump’s call to possibly delay the election by reminding him that it is Congress’ authority to do so and he will not vote to delay.

According to The Hill:

A Republican lawmaker broke with President Trump on Thursday and said he would oppose any attempts to delay the November election after Trump floated the idea.

Kinzinger’s tweet came after Trump in a tweet Thursday morning pitched the idea of delaying the election — something he does not have the power to do.

Trump launched into fresh attacks against mail-in voting and suggested that absentee or mail-in ballots could result in the “most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history.”

The tweet also marks a departure from Trump’s previous stance of keeping the election on Nov. 3, despite concerns about the safety of in-person voting during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

Many outlets, including this one,  have stated there are no issues with mail-in voting a CBS attempt to see if it worked raised major cause for concern.

I agree. If I have to vote by mail, I will hand carry the ballot to the Board Of Election Commissioners office. Forget mailing it.

remember when the democrat communists hid the military votes in AFGHANISTAN AT KANDAHAR AFB? THAT IS WHAT COMMUNISTS DO. LOOK WE ARE FLYING YOUR VOTES RIGHT HOME. THEN THEY PUT THEM IN AMMO BOXES IN AN AMMO DUMP.

He did not break with Trump! This is not a truth. He floated the idea and this is merely a response! Get real

Exactly. I doubt the President was really serious about changing it anyway, but it sure did get the haters going, as usual.

IF one is ambulatory and IN the State/County in which they are registered then they should HAVE to vote in person UNLESS ADA requirement otherwise.
With regard to delaying the election, that will ONLY be good for the democrats. As it is now the polls are all FoS.
In fact, I LOVE the way that votes are taken in Middle East. Your finger is dyed with a dye that is NOT removable when you vote.
Attempt to vote again and you are arrested!
I love that Trump is so easily able to distract these idiots by making a simple comment that he was not even serious about.

Kinzinger can’t recognize a joke when he hears one and he surely doesn’t understand Trump. He wanted to upset the Democrats and it worked, And kin zinger fell for it. Must be from Il.

The proof is in the tests by even CNN. But it will be done in the states with dim wits in charge unless the voters demand the polls be opened.
