AUSTIN (KXAN) — After President Donald Trump gave remarks at the White House Thursday afternoon, many were quick to point out his unsupported claims of voter fraud in the presidential election.

As of Thursday night, the race remained uncalled as ballots were still being counted in key states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada and Pennsylvania.

Recently re-elected U.S. representatives for Texas sounded off on Twitter, reacting to Trump’s speech.

Democratic Rep. Lloyd Doggett won his re-election for U.S. House District 35. He said only “the people decide the outcome of elections,” not just when those in power approve of the results. He went on to say that “every voter counts.”
