Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf has condemned a case filed by President Donald Trump’s campaign to stop the counting of votes in the state.
Trump’s campaign filed a petition to stop counting ballots in Pennsylvania.
Trump’s campaign has called for the recount of ballots in Wisconsin.
Democrat Governor Wolf, reacting at a press conference, described the action as contradictory to the fundamental values of democracy and a disgrace.
He promised that the citizens of Pennsylvania would fight to ensure that all ballots would be counted and that there would be free and fair elections.
Wolf said: “This afternoon, the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit to stop the counting of ballots in Pennsylvania.
“That is simply wrong. It goes against the most basic principles of our democracy. It takes away the right of every American citizen to cast their vote to choose their leaders.
“Electoral officers at the state and local level should be free to do their jobs without fear or intimidation.
“These attempts to the democratic process is disgraceful, we are going to fight and continue to ensure free and fair election in Pennsylvania.
“We will fight like hell to protect the vote in Pennsylvania, we need to have free and fair elections free of external influencers.
“We need to have confidence that the people are choosing their leaders and not the leaders choosing the people to vote for them.”
