Lincoln Project resurfaces Kellyanne Conway tweet calling 306 electoral votes ‘historic’

The prominent anti-Trump Republican group Lincoln Project resurfaced former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s 2016 tweet calling 306 electoral votes “historic.”

“Agreed,” the Lincoln Project’s Twitter account posted, responding to Conway’s four-year-old tweet reading, “306. Landslide. Blowout. Historic.”

The group, known for its relentless media content hounding the president’s job performance during his time in office, took advantage of the moment as media outlets called 306 electoral votes for President-elect Joe Biden on Friday afternoon.

CNN reported their final tally for the 2020 presidential election Friday at 306 electoral votes for Biden and 232 for President Trump, an inverse from the results of the 2016 election when Trump received the 306 electoral votes.

Meanwhile, the imminence of Biden’s return to the White House as president of the United States weighs heavier as numerous legislators from both parties have urged Trump to offer intelligence briefings to Biden in preparation for his presidency.

GOP Sens. James Lankford (Okla.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.), both prominent loyalists of Trump, have called on Biden to begin receiving classified information essential to his transfer of power.

“There is no loss from him getting the briefings and to be able to do that and if that’s not occurring by Friday I will step in as well, and to be able to push and to say this needs to occur so that regardless of the outcome of the election … people can be ready for that actual task,” Lankford said.

Both Graham and Lankford, among other vocal conservatives in the Senate, support the president’s litigation pursuits to ensure the election was rendered honest and fair under the democratic system. They have maintained Biden should have the necessary resources in the event Trump’s efforts fail and the results of the election stand.

Still, when asked, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) didn’t respond to a question about whether Biden should receive classified information.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) took a more direct stance, telling CNN that whoever is president on Jan. 20 “will get the information.”
