Secretary of State Michael Adams says it's not possible to steal an election in Kentucky. He says our elections are fair and they’re run by both Democrats and Republicans.
When asked if President Trump is wrong in saying that this election was stolen from him, Adams said "I think he's wrong in terms of there being some sort of mass conspiracy to steal the election."
