President Donald Trump said during Tuesday night's first presidential debate that fraud has already been "established" as a risk with mail-in voting, citing a recent race between two Democrats.
As the debate began to wrap up, Trump pushed back on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's claim that "no one has established at all that there is fraud related to mail-in ballots. That somehow it's a fraudulent process."
"It's already been established," the president replied. "Take a look at Carolyn Maloney's race," Trump suggested to moderator Chris Wallace. "Look at Carolyn Maloney. They have no idea what happened."
President Trump was not able to elaborate as Wallace returned the floor to Biden, who said that the president "has no idea what he's talking about."
What President Trump was referring to was a June primary race between incumbent Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) and her challenger, fellow Democrat Suraj Patel.
