Republican Kentucky Senator John Kennedy discussed election integrity and inflation with Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday.
To restore confidence in our elections, “we have to do, at a minimum, three things,” Kennedy said. “First, we have to defeat, as we have so far, President Biden’s attempt to establish a federal election code.” He said.
“Number two, we have to go back to having an election day, not an election month. I’m okay if people want to vote by mail. That’s up to the states. But the ballots need to be in and counted by election night. Let me say it again. We need an election day, not an election month.” He added.
“And number three, you — and this is unconditional,” Kennedy said. “You have to be required to prove you are who you say you are to vote. And if we would do those three things, I think people would have a little more confidence in our election system.” He continued.

As Kennedy was discussing these election integrity policies, Republican Primary in Pennsylvania was still ongoing and the Senate nominee for the GOP was still not settled. The same is still not settled as of writing this article. Mehmet Oz and David McCormick are running neck-and-neck with around 8,596 voters remaining to be counted as of publishing this article.
Several mail-in ballots are still yet to be counted as both campaigns are working on election security and integrity issues. A recount of all votes is expected in the upcoming weeks and it would cost over a million dollars of taxpayer money to conduct this recount.
When it came to inflation, which is at an all-time high at this time, President Biden, and his administration are continually blaming Putin and the Russia-Ukraine conflict for this price hike.
“President Biden says that he has no control over gasoline prices and oil prices. You can’t have regulatory control over the drilling, transport, storage, refining, trading, and taxation of oil, as the president does, and accurately make that statement.” Senator Kennedy told Hannity
“And the American people just don’t believe him, because it’s just not true.” He added.
