“It turns out that telling the voters that the election is rigged is not a great way to turn out your voters.”

Romney also commented on today’s joint session of Congress, where many of his colleagues plan to challenge Electoral College results, saying “the gambit we’re seeing today is very disappointing.”

“President Trump has disrespected the American voters, has dishonored the election system and has disgraced the office of the presidency,” he continued. “I’m confident we’ll proceed as the Constitution demands and tell our supporters the truth, whether or not they want to hear it.”
