WASHINGTON, D.C. — Following the presidential debate tonight, Indivisible Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director Leah Greenberg and Stand Up America Founder and President Sean Eldridge issued the following joint statement:
“The confusion and doubt that Donald Trump tried to sow about the election tonight is the behavior of a desperate man and a losing candidate.
“Elections are at the heart of what makes our democracy great, and the American people are not going to allow one weak man to ruin that. That’s why Indivisible and Stand Up America launched Protect the Results earlier this year as a project aimed at protecting the valid results of the 2020 election by building the infrastructure to mobilize millions of Americans should Trump take steps to undermine the outcome of the election.
“From conservative organizations to faith groups to labor unions, we are building a broad network of people who are working to make sure every vote is counted and preparing to mobilize if Trump attempts to undermine the valid results.
“While we work to resoundingly defeat Donald Trump in this election, preparing to also protect the results of this election isn’t just reasonable, it’s necessary. The voters will have the last word.”
