“Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he will win if we don’t give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is,” Clinton told former aide Jennifer Palmieri on Showtime’s “The Circus.”
“I think that [Republicans] have a couple of scenarios that they are looking toward. One is messing up absentee balloting. They believe that helps them so that they then get maybe a narrow advantage in the Electoral College on Election Day,” Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee, alleged. “So we’ve got to have a massive legal operation, and I know the Biden campaign is working on that.”
Hillary Clinton has some advice for Joe Biden: Dont concede in a close race.

“What theyre doing is using COVID to steal an election,” Trump argued. “Theyre using COVID to defraud the American people, all of our people, of a fair and free election. We cant do that.”
Many political observers have said it is unlikely a winner will be able to be declared on Election Night due to the delays that come with mail-in voting.
