From the November 20 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): There have been a lot of allegations made. I'm sure, over the coming months, they're going to take a look at them, and if there's anything to them, we're going to know about it. 

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Turnouts greater than ever before. He got more votes than anybody else who ever ran for governor in that state. I also think it's important to bring up, I think, that the whole investigation will work to his benefit. I think that Stacey Abrams is doing something that I think a lot of other Democrats are doing, they're bringing into scrutiny, as Howard Dean has said, as Sherrod Brown has said. It's an unfair election and they want to bring up a race element to this, as if the white governor or white secretary of state was keeping Blacks from voting, and that seems to be a fight they want to have.
