Wisconsin GOP official urges party to stop 'nonsense' election audits

A Wisconsin GOP official is urging his party to stop its "nonsense" audits of the 2020 presidential election.

Hopefully, my fellow Repubs stop with this nonsense, and begin to focus on 2022 elections,” Rohn Bishop, chairman for the Republican Party of Fond du Lac County, said in a tweet Thursday, adding the moves are "alienating soft GOP voters who think we're nuts and wasting their tax dollars."

Bishop’s comments come after a draft of a report on Arizona's own 2020 audit said President BidenJoe BidenCDC working to tighten testing requirement for international travelers On The Money — Powell pivots as inflation rises Overnight Energy & Environment — Presented by ExxonMobil — Manchin seeks 'adjustments' to spending plan MORE actually beat former President TrumpDonald TrumpOmar, Muslim Democrats decry Islamophobia amid death threats On The Money — Powell pivots as inflation rises Trump cheers CNN's Cuomo suspension MORE by more votes than originally counted.

Trump, who has called for similar audits in other states Biden won, has blasted media reporting of Arizona's, saying the full audit report, slated to be released Friday, “has uncovered significant and undeniable evidence of FRAUD.”

“Huge findings in Arizona! However, the Fake News Media is already trying to ‘call it’ again for Biden before actually looking at the facts — just like they did in November!” Trump said.

Trump, along with some other Republicans, have continued to peddle false claims about the 2020 election, saying without evidence it was riddled with fraud.
