WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Ranking Member of the Senate Rules Committee with oversight over federal elections, released the following statement in response to tonight’s announcement by Administration officials on foreign influence operations and threats to our election systems.
"Any interference in our democracy is unacceptable, and efforts to suppress the vote must be stopped. As adversaries continue their efforts to undermine our election systems, we must arm ourselves with accurate information from trusted officials. As we continue to get information on threats to the election, it is on all of us to reject misinformation and to tell the truth. Our election systems span 50 states, five territories, and thousands of jurisdictions. State and local election officials are working around the clock, and experts have concluded that the integrity of our election system is strong. The best defense against those trying to undermine our democracy is the resolve of the American people, who are voting by the millions as we speak. Keep voting. Keep your resolve. Keep making your voices heard."
