Former President Donald Trump took to Truth Social on Wednesday to again attack mail-in voting amid problems with the process in Pennsylvania.
Lancaster County officials on primary day Tuesday said an estimated two-thirds of 21,000 mail-in ballots received could not be scanned due to a printing error, LancasterOnline reported.
Trump-endorsed Mehmet Oz pulled ahead of David McCormick by about 2,000 votes, with more than 1.3 million ballots counted. Final results are not expected to be announced for several days.
"Here we go again! In Pennsylvania they are unable to count the Mail-In Ballots. It is a BIG MESS. Our Country should go to paper ballots, with same day voting. Just done in France, zero problems. Get Smart America!!!" Trump posted on Truth Social.
Oz and McCormick fended off Kathy Barnette, who was endorsed by former Trump supporter David McIntosh, head of the influential conservative group the Club for Growth.
"The Club For Growth Candidate, who lost, took many votes away from Oz. Also, early Mail-In Ballots were sent without my having endorsed yet. Despite all of this, Oz won!" Trump posted.
"Remember, all three candidates in Pennsylvania were 'Ultra' MAGA!," Trump posted.
Trump, posting on his new social media platform, touted the continued success of candidates he has endorsed.
"A big night for Trump Endorsed candidates last night," Trump posted on Truth Social. "Dr Oz looks to have won despite the fact that my endorsement was put out after many mail-in ballots had already been sent. It’s called a come from behind victory.
"Looks to be, over last few week, about 85 and 3. Big victory for [Rep.] Ted Budd, Doug Mastriano, all of Arkansas, etc. Big races next week!"
Budd, R-N.C., on Tuesday night won the GOP primary in the North Carolina U.S. Senate race.
Mastriano, a retired U.S. Army colonel and state senator since 2019, on Tuesday won the Republican nomination for Pennsylvania governor.
In Kentucky, Reps. Thomas Massie, Andy Barr, and Hal Rogers won their primaries Tuesday after being endorsed by Trump.
Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., suffered a rare loss among Trump-endorsed candidates when he was defeated by state Sen. Chuck Edwards in the Republican primary for North Carolina's new 11th district.
