- Says there is long tradition of counting votes and respect for the law
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has said that the votes should continued to be counted in states yet to announce the results of the 2020 Presidential Election until they finished counting while responding to a question on President Donald Trump’s lawsuits to stop counting in affected states.
“They are still counting a whole bunch of votes. But those votes are getting counted in some states. People are doing the best they can as they count these votes,” said Governor Mike DeWine.
Votes are still being counted in Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin and North Carolina states.
“I think it is important for us as Ohioans and Americans to remember that we’ve done this before. We’ve done this for over 200 years, and we’ve done it better and above anybody, maybe anybody throughout the history of end time. We’ve done exceedingly well.”
Governor DeWine said, “If there is transition of power we do that well. We have a long tradition of counting our votes, we have a long tradition of respect for the law.”
“At the same time, we should not be upset if a candidate decides to file lawsuits. Every presidential campaign that I have been associated with in Ohio has had lawyers on ready to file lawsuits and the other side as well.”
According to him, “the fact that a lawsuit is filed, is we just need to say, let’s trust the court process and let’s trust the process that we have had over 200 years and building up and following.”
“I have great confident that this is all going to work, we are going to have a winner, we are going to have someone who is going to become the next President of United States.”
“It is important for us to respect both sides and to understand that after this is over, after the counting is done, after somebody is the President, we will move on.”
