SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The false belief that Donald Trump won the 2020 election is still held by many voters. Monday afternoon South Dakota Sen. Mike Rounds shared with KELOLAND News how he handles a constituent’s possible frustration with him for not agreeing with the falsehood.

“That’s where basically, I have to say look, I understand that you’ve been told that, I respect the fact that you believe it, but I’m sorry I can’t support it,” Rounds said. “And I can show you evidence in 62 different cases across the United States where the accusations that have been made simply did not play out in front of a court or in front of any type of a commission set up to evaluate them.”

Rounds stressed the value of making your voice heard and exercising the right to vote.
