At a candidate training “brainstorming” session I held last month, the sticky question about how to respond to media questions about the 2020 election came up from multiple candidates.
The big problem with this issue is that even if you believe there was fraud in the election, it’s almost impossible to prove. So you come off looking like a “conspiracy nut.”
And no matter how much you might wish that fouled up election could be undone…what’s done is done.
So here are three suggestions for how to deal with it…
1.) Stop referring to the issue as election integrity and start referring to it as election security. “Security” is a much more readily understood, and used, term than “integrity” among average voters.
2.) Stop focusing only on the possible “fraud” and start talking about how the 2020 election was “rigged.” How so? Click here and read this.
3.) Stop focusing on what happened in the last election and adopt a campaign platform on election security to prevent it from ever happening again. Click here and read this example.
