Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania have joined the list of Republicans to rubbish Donald Trump's allegations of a rigged election, NBC News reported.
Calling for confidence in next month's polls, the two senators, in different debates, challenged Trump's repeated claim that the results of the 2016 election could be "rigged."
"Our elections may not always be completely perfect, but they are legitimate, they have integrity and everyone needs to respect the outcome," Toomey said during his debate against Katie McGinty.
Requesting voters to respect the outcome, Toomey said that the success of the American "republic" depends on citizens' "confidence in the outcome of the elections."
Meanwhile, Rubio, during his debate against Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy, said the election is "absolutely" not being rigged and hopes Trump "stops saying that."
"There's no evidence behind any of this [rigging] and so this should not continue to be said," Rubio added.
Toomey and Rubio's respective Democratic challengers attacked the senators for not opposing Trump. While Murphy called Trump "unhinged;" McGinty lashed out saying the Republican presidential nominee's election skepticism is a "dangerous, reckless allegation."
Trump has increased his warnings in recent days, saying without citing evidence that voter fraud is "very, very common," charging that undocumented immigrants and "people that have died 10 years ago" also cast their ballot.
