Dr. Sean Kim Butorac shared insight behind the speculation surrounding the 2020 Election

As the wait continued and the American people grew more and more anxious, political analysts and leaders nationwide took to speculation regarding the 2020 Election. For example, Rudy Giuliani mentioned he thought the Biden campaign was trying to steal the election and that the Trump campaign will not be bullied into conceding.

Dr. Sean Kim Butorac, assistant professor of political science at North Central College, interviewed with WGN News on this and the overall status of the election on Wednesday, November 4.

“Looking at where things stand, democrats clearly are not out of the woods yet, but things do look promising for them, but that doesn’t mean the Biden campaign is trying to steal the election,” said Dr. Kim Butorac. “Biden has got some narrow leads in the Midwest, and state officials have indicated that they will provide results as soon as possible. It’s unclear whether or not that’s going to give us a winner in the next 24-hours—we will just have to wait and see.”
