Former Vice President Joe Biden defended Republican lawmakers in DC as “decent people” during a campaign fundraiser held at Cape Cod.

“There’s an awful lot of really good Republicans out there,” Biden argued, according to Washington Post reporter Matt Viser.

“I get in trouble for saying that with Democrats, but…every time we ever got in trouble with our administration, remember who got sent up to Capitol Hill to fix it? Me,” he said.

”Because they know I respect the other team. I do. They’re decent people,” Biden claimed. “They ran because they care about things, but they’re intimidated right now.”

Trump -- who trails Biden in national polling and is narrowly behind in several swing states seen as crucial to his path to re-election -- is under pressure to make the most of the remaining weeks before the November 3 election.

GOP senator proposes ‘Orwellian’ bill nullifying all mail-in ballots not counted with-in 48 hours: report

A new bill proposed by Republican Sen. Rick Scott is "entirely unworkable," Slate reported Thursday evening, but demonstrates the GOP's intense desire to make sure millions of votes aren't counted in the general election by severely restricting the time frame during which they can be tallied.

The Orwellian-named "Help America Vote Act of 2020," which Scott proposed Thursday, would help to codify President Donald Trump's desire, stated last week, to ensure that the preliminary tally of votes on Election Day will count as the final vote count in the election.

The preliminary count would leave out absentee ballots and a record number of mail-in ballots, which nearly half of voters plan to either send to election officials or place in a drop box before Election Day, according to a Washington Post/University of Maryland poll conducted earlier this month.
