(NewsReady.com) – A senior House Republican warned colleagues Saturday California Democrats are trying to rig the results of a high-profile election in the state. Voters in the 25th Congressional District will vote Tuesday to replace former Representative Katie Hill (D-CA) who resigned last October over a scandal. Now Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN) fears the Dems are playing dirty to hang on to the seat. President Donald Trump is sounding the alarm, as well.
Governor @GavinNewsom of California won’t let restaurants, beaches and stores open, but he installs a voting booth system in a highly Democrat area (supposed to be mail in ballots only) because our great candidate, @MikeGarcia2020, is winning by a lot. CA25 Rigged Election!

California is still on strict lockdown, and the election is supposed to be decided by an all-postal ballot. However, it looks like postal votes are showing a strong performance by the GOP. Now, the state’s Democratic governor is trying to swing that back.
Governor Newsom is keeping stores, restaurants and even beaches closed to prevent coronavirus infections. However, he’s authorized a new in-person voting center in the strongly Dem city of Lancaster. Newsom and allies say they need the center to allow minority voters to take part.
Rep. Emmer and President Trump, on the other hand, say it’s an attempt to steal the election.
