Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham urged President-elect Donald Trump to refrain from claiming voter fraud unless he has evidence, Politico reports.

"No one has suggested to me there's evidence of what he said … and if there is not evidence, please stop saying that. You are now the president-elect of the United States. If you really believe that millions of people voted illegally, you should have some proof, because your voice is not just an ordinary voice," the South Carolina senator said.

Graham said he might look for a Democrat to co-sponsor a resolution that says the election was not rigged. The measure would say, "The 2016 elections were free and fair, and the results were the will of the American people — that the system worked."

Politico reported that few other Republicans challenged Trump on his fraud claims. Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford said the claims were "pretty far-fetched." Texas Rep. John Cornyn said he would not comment, as did Arkansas Sen. John Boozman and Indiana Sen. Dan Coats.

Arizona Sen. John McCain, who like Graham, has criticized the real-estate mogul before, said, "I'm not commenting on Donald Trump's daily comments. I'm not going to do it."

Some election officials and lawmakers rejected Trump's fraud claims.

USA Today reported that Trump spokesman Jason Miller cited a Washington Post study for the fraud information. The author of that study said the spokesman interpreted the findings incorrectly, saying it did not find any evidence of voter fraud.
