Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy are rejecting President Trump's claims of voter fraud, saying has no evidence to support his allegations.
Sen. Blumenthal called President Trump's remarks at the White House Thursday night dangerous and damaging.
The president said, "If you count the legal votes, I easily win. If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us."
However, the president didn't offer evidence of illegal activity.
Blumenthal says it was a sad, pathetic accusation.
"We're seeing now a deliberate effort planned before the election to sabotage the outcome here and it is ailing because the votes are being counted," says Blumenthal.
Republican Rep. Tony D'Amelio, of Waterbury, served as honorary state chairman of President Trump's 2020 reelection effort in Connecticut. He says he has seen voter fraud happen before and believes the tight race calls for an investigation.
"If there is fraud out there, like our president said every legal vote should be counted. If they find there are not legal votes then it should be exposed and we should know," says D'Amelio.
