ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland’s Republican candidate for U.S. Senate says she will respect the decision of the state’s voters on Election Day.

Del. Kathy Szeliga was asked Thursday about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s comments during the third presidential debate that he might not accept election results. Trump had said in the days leading up to Wednesday night’s debate that the election would be “rigged.”

Szeliga says voter fraud exists, but she says “preemptively assuming the election is fixed only further erodes people’s trust in our democracy.”

Szeliga is supporting Trump’s candidacy. But she has spoken out against his comments at times. This month, she said she was “appalled” by Trump’s comments in a 2005 video, in which he is heard bragging about how his fame allowed him to “do anything” to women.
