(FixThisNation.com) – Republican Texas AG Paxton has said that Trump would not have won Texas in 2020 elections if his office had not stopped counties from mailing out applications for mail-in ballots to all voters that were registered.
Harris County wanted to mail applications for mail-in ballots to all the registered voters in the area, around 2 million, because of the pandemic. However, this move was blocked by the conservative Texas Supreme Court following litigation filed by Paxton’s office.
On Friday, while appearing on Steve Bannon’s, former Trump adviser, War Room podcast, Paxton argued that Trump had only won in Texas by 620K votes and that had the close to two and a half million mail-in ballots been sent out, it would have been hard to stop them all. If they had not blocked these ballots, then it would have been likely that on election night, what happened in many other states would have also occurred in Texas, and that they would have ended up being a battleground state.
Paxton appeared to confuse mail-in ballots with applications for mail-in ballots in the remarks he made to Bannon. Harris County had never tried to mail actual ballots to all registered voters. Instead, they were sending out applications so that individual voters could have requested them if they wanted them>
Paxton proceeded to point out that Trump had won the traditionally conservative southwestern state by more than 600,000 votes, while President Joe Biden managed to win more than 11.3 million votes, or 46.5 percent of the state’s votes.
