One of the most prominent Republicans in the US Congress on Sunday urged Donald Trump to “ fight hard ” and not concede his loss to Joe Biden in the race for the White House , saying unfounded allegations of fraud by the president must be investigated .

Other Republicans also told Trump that legal challenges must be allowed to play out before he takes the next action .

“ We will work with Biden if he wins , but Trump has not lost , ” Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said on Fox News .

“ Do not concede , Mr . President . Fight hard. ”

Graham baselessly alleged “ shenanigans ” related to mailed ballots, the method a large number of Americans preferred in Tuesday’ s election due to the coronavirus pandemic .

“ It ’ s the wild – wild west when it comes to mail- in balloting , ” said Graham , a former Trump critic turned unstinting supporter .

There is no evidence that fraud has ever been a significant problem affecting mail -in voting in US presidential elections .

“ Everything we worried about has come true , so if we don’ t fight back in 2020 we ’ re never going to win again presidentially , ” he nevertheless added .

Other top Republicans were more guarded in their comments , but nonetheless refused to acknowledge Biden had won , saying legal challenges must go forward and vote counting must continue .What we need in the presidential race is to make sure every legal vote is counted , every recount is completed , and every legal challenge should be heard , ” Kevin McCarthy , the top Republican in the House of Representatives , said on Fox News .

“ Then and only then that America will decide who won the race . ”
Trump has repeatedly made groundless allegations of fraud and has even claimed that he won the election despite projections based on results showing Biden as the clear victor .

Biden currently has at least 279 electoral votes , with only 270 needed to win. Trump has 214 .
