The week that Republicans ignored Trump's election lies

Mehmet Oz, the Trump-backed Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, did not prematurely declare victory last week, as Trump said he should. David McCormick, who is running narrowly behind Oz, has not claimed the election is unfair.

“No one’s paying any attention to it,” said Christopher Nicholas, a longtime Republican consultant based in Harrisburg…

But one Republican who has advised Trump and is familiar with both the Oz and McCormick operations said “nobody wants to be viewed as a sore loser and make allegations they can’t sustain.”

“They’re both intelligent guys,” the person said. “They’re both sane guys, and neither of them wants to embarrass himself.”
