He isn’t wrong.
During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves (R) refused to say that Biden was legitimately elected.

“You were not part of that campaign, but I want to ask you a simple yes or no question because your answer a few weeks ago to a colleague kind of raised my eyebrows. Do you accept that Joe Biden is the legitimate and lawfully elected president of the United States?” Tapper wondered aloud.
“President Biden is the president of the United States,” Reeves replied, prompting the CNN anchor to quickly push back.
“Was he legitimately and lawfully elected?” Tapper asked, leading the GOP governor to parrot Trump’s attacks on mail-in voting.
“Our state, we do not allow mail-in voting and the reason we don’t allow mail-in voting is we don’t think that—we think it allows for lots of opportunities for fraud and other things,” Reeves grumbled. “And I don’t think mail-in voting should be allowed in other states around the nation. President Biden is the duly-elected president and we will do everything we can to work with him to help the citizens of Mississippi.”
Now, the Mainstream Media is going to push a narrative that this means he doesn’t accept the results of the 2020 election.
However, the truth is that he is not making that point. Governor Reeves says Biden is the President. What Governor Reeves points out is that just because he was elected that does not mean it was legitimate.
The election was clearly rigged against Trump. Whether it was the Deep State, the Media’s lies, or the late changes in voting rules there was nothing legitimate about the 2020 election.
We need more Republicans to say this and say it often. What we saw during the 2020 election should never happen again.
