Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Aide to Sen. Marsha Blackburn says Republican 'misspoke' by referring to Biden as 'president-elect'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A staffer for Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R) was quick to tell the press Friday night that the strong ally for President Donald Trump "simply misspoke" when she referred to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as "president-elect" during an evening interview.

President Trump has not conceded the race to Biden, who has been roundly declared the projected winner in the race by mainstream media. The Trump campaign has several ongoing lawsuits contesting the election results in multiple states, alleging voting irregularities and fraud—which Blackburn has reportedly helped fund.

During an interview with ABC News, journalist Juju Chang asked Blackburn, "Have you spoken yet with the president-elect to congratulate him on his victory?"

Blackburn replied, "I have not spoken with the president-elect. We did have the vice-president come to the floor, the vice-president elect, come to the floor this week to cast a vote. I was presiding at the time, didn't get to speak with her, but we're watching the process play out, Juju. And just like in 2000 when a Tennessean, Al Gore, and George Bush were going through the counting of the hanging chads, we will work through this process."

She added, "I will say, now is the time, for the Trump campaign—if they have their information that they need to present in court— now is the time that they need to be taking that evidence to court."
