Ronna McDaniel makes a final push for GOP candidates in Pennsylvania on Election Day, which she says most Republicans plan to vote in the state.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman joined “TBEN & Friends” with Pete Hegseth at Eagle Diner, outside of Philadelphia, to discuss Election Day and how the RNC plans to ensure fair elections.

McDaniel explained why she chose Bucks County to be Dr. Mehmet Oz in his latest bid to win a major Senate seat.

“This is an important county. It’s going to be the key to Republican victories. And we’ve seen the Republicans vote today on Election Day in Pennsylvania. So we’re going to come out and get everyone out there to vote today.”

“I was at the Oz gathering last night, I asked the audience of over 1,000 people, how many of you voted? Not a single hand went up, so we have to get it all done. Today, he has to win almost to 60%. I think he will. But everyone has to get out and vote.”

“We have pollsters everywhere. We have 100% coverage and in Pennsylvania we have pollsters, we have lawyers everywhere and we’re going to make sure that if we see something wrong, we’re going to protect everyone’s voice, and we’re going to make sure it’s fair is. But some of these states have crazy laws, and we’re just going to have to deal with them and be patient. It may take a while,” McDaniel said.

McDaniel said the situation illustrates “why people are concerned about our elections”.

“Democrats say ‘democracy, democracy’. How about giving us an election day, a voter card and making our elections fair and transparent? That would give a lot of people a lot more certainty about the elections.”

The results of the midterm elections won’t be clear on Election Day and the final results won’t arrive for “a few days,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Monday.

Jean-Pierre made the statement at a press conference at the White House on the eve of Election Day. She argued that many states use mailed ballots and other forms of early voting that are often not counted until after the ballots are cast in person on Tuesday.

“Maybe for a few days we won’t know all the winners of the elections. It takes time to count all the legitimate ballots in a legal and orderly way. That’s how this should work,” Jean-Pierre told reporters.
