Speaking with the Salt Lake Tribune in a new interview, Rep. Elect Burgess Owens said he he “absolutely” believes Trump won the presidential election.
“There’s no question in my mind that I think he won,” Owens told the publication.
Owens compared Trump’s election challenges to leaving everything on the field in a NFL game.
“In 10 years in the NFL, I played in a lot of losing games,” Owens explained.
“If you leave everything on the field and you’ve done everything you can and there’s nothing left, then it’s a winning game regardless of what the score might be.”
Owens also said “,y goal basically is just to make sure that I’m doing everything I can to take this to every legal end we have and once the official count is done, then we’ll respect whoever the president is.”
