WATCH: Arizona official describes pressure campaign by Trump allies seeking to overturn the election
Maricopa County Supervisor Clint Hickman recently described the pressure campaign he received from supporters of Donald Trump seeking to overturn the 2020 election in Arizona.
Hickman was interviewed by Matea Gold of The Washington Post about his recollections of Trump's efforts to overturn the election as part of the newspaper's in-depth investigation of the January 6th insurrection and its aftermath.
"I endorsed President Trump, I voted for him twice," Hickman said. I did my best for them, that's what I thought I was to do was work for the top of the ticket. I'm a Republican and have been since my first vote."
"My entire board was taking shots from people both in our state and outside the state trying to get us to do things that we would not do," he explained.
He also described the insurrection like an attack on a church.
"I have a son that's 16 and another that's 14. I don't want to send my son off to war to fight some foreign enemy to feel like an American again and I damn sure don't want him fighting fellow Americans to prove just how American he is. It's just not the way to go. So let's get back to being American again," he urged.
