"Liberty, my friends, is only one election away from extinction," former Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis said Tuesday at an Election Integrity Rally in Dayton, Ohio that she hosted along with Ohio GOP Senate candidate Josh Mandel and Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers.

Touting himself as the only candidate in his Senate race who believes the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump, Mandel called for election audits in the battleground states, recalled his visit to the Maricopa County election audit, and declared he wants to "abolish the Jan. 6 commission" and "replace it with a Nov. 3 commission."

Explaining the Maricopa County election audit process, Rogers said two or three lawyers were on the floor at all times "because you know we'll get sued," three out of the five people at each audit table were vetted Maricopa County voters, and everything was documented through photos and video that was stored and hardwired, so it isn't connected to the internet.

Rogers also detailed the process of checking ballots with microscopic cameras for a minute each to authenticate them and determine if a human selected a candidate as opposed to a machine. Maricopa County is slowly providing information that was subpoenaed by the state Senate, which Rogers said should eventually include long-withheld routers.

Rogers recalled that when she asked the CEO of Cyber Ninjas, the company performing the Maricopa County election audit, what she should tell her constituents, he answered that elections should be done on paper ballots on one day of voting that is in person unless a voter is an invalid or in the military.

"So we will not tire, we will not stop, we will never give up until we find the truth of 2020, because until we find the truth of 2020, we can't fix 2022," Rogers said.

She suggested Americans interested in getting involved in politics sign her national petition to decertify the 2020 presidential election.

Ellis followed Rogers, saying that "lawless elections have lawless consequences."

She explained that the RNC didn't allow Trump and his team to fight for election integrity in the courts leading up to the 2020 presidential election, which is why she left the GOP.

"Being a good citizen of the United States," she said, "means that we understand that we the people are the last full stop between preserving and protecting our liberty and freedom, and just giving in to tyranny."
