(TheRedWire.com) – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair Michael Whatley in a recent interview on NewsNation’s “The Hill Sunday” avoided a question by anchor Chris Stirewalt that was focused on whether the 2020 presidential election was stolen. Instead, he noted that he was set on making sure that there would be election integrity in this cycle.

During the interview Whatley was asked about the recent reports that noted that the RNC had been asking potential refires whether or not the 2020 presidential election had been stolen. When asked whether these were reports he could confirm, Whatley argued that currently the “only litmus test” he was using was whether or not he supported Trump and the other Republican nominees. He then said that another question he was asking was whether they would be willing to work 24/7 to ensure that the GOP will win the upcoming election. 

Stirewalt proceeded to ask Whatley what he would answer if someone asked him whether the 2020 election had been stolen. In response, Whatley argued that he thought there were irregularities and that there were issues across the country. He continued by saying that they needed to ensure there is election integrity and that they were focused on making sure they had rules in place during the 2024 presidential election. 

He added that this included ensuring people had voter IDs and that absentee ballots also included the signature of the voter and a witness. As he pointed out these were measures that had the backing of the majority of Americans.
