Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson says Trump's continued focus on the 2020 election is 'a recipe for disaster' in the midterm
  • Gov. Hutchinson said that "relitigating" the 2020 election would be "a recipe for disaster in 2022."
  • On NBC's "Meet the Press," the Ark. governor dismissed Trump's calls to sit out upcoming elections.
  • "It's about the future. It's not about the last election," the Republican governor said.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Sunday said that former President Donald Trump's continued attempts to discredit the 2020 election results could be a "disaster" for GOP candidates running for office next year.

During an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," the Arkansas Republican told host Chuck Todd that the party would be better served by focusing on issues that are pertinent to the future and not revisit last year's hotly-contested presidential election that saw now-President Joe Biden oust Trump.

"Relitigating 2020 is a recipe for disaster in 2022," he said. "Let's talk about the future. The election is past. It's been certified. The states made decisions on the integrity of each of their elections and made improvements where need be."

Trump, who pushed for a "forensic" audit in Arizona that failed to disprove Biden's statewide victory and who called for additional audits in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, has questioned the veracity of the election results and continues to assert that the election was "stolen" from him without providing any evidence to support his claims.


Last Wednesday, the former president suggested that GOP voters will not come out to vote in 2022 and 2024 if the Republican Party doesn't fully back his debunked allegations regarding the election.

... Trump is being counted on by Republican power brokers to play a major role in the 2022 midterm elections and the former president continues to tout his own potential 2024 presidential bid.
