““If I lose — if [Democrats] win — I think what’s going to happen is that every state politician is going to be fearful to stand up for election integrity for the next few decades…. And this stuff matters. What’s coming down the pike — same-day voter registration, all-mail ballots — what they’re doing is trying to take a very radical agenda and shove it through, and then they’re going to change the election laws and seal their victory so we can’t undo it. That’s what they’re trying to do. That’s what’s at stake here.”
