FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WTVF) — Some voters in Tennessee still support President Trump's push to "stop the steal."

On Sunday hundreds of people gathered on West Main Street in Franklin for the “March for Trump” rally.

"He has not backed down," said Amy Kremer, the chair of 'Women for America,' "now he needs us to stand with him and we will be standing with him in Washington D.C."

Not happy with the results, some trump supporters here say they believe voter fraud played a role in the outcome of the presidential election.

"I'm here to support my president and I think this election was stolen and I’ll go to my grave believing it," said Hamilton Anthony Horseman.

Tennessee is the only state with both senators joining the plan to oppose certifying the electoral college votes.

Senators Marsha Blackburn and Bill Hagerty say they will vote against certification on Wednesday.

They are also calling for an emergency audit of the results in some states.

Senators Blackburn and Hagerty join nine other republican senators and senators-elect in the vote to oppose the 2020 election.

This as the Washington Post released a recording of President Trump on the phone with Georgia's secretary of state.

President Trump could be heard on the tapes saying the following: “So look, all I want to do, is this, I just want to find, uh, 11,780 votes, which is one more that we have, because we won the state. So, so tell me, Brad, what are we going to do? I, we won the election, and it's not fair to take it away from us like this. And it's going to be very costly in many ways.”

The recording also includes President Trump claiming not declaring him the winner in Georgia destroyed trust in the process and would negatively impact republican turnout during the senate runoff election there.

That's coming up on Tuesday.
