Letter: Stolen election? If so, why split the Senate

To the Editor:

Congressional Republicans (with two exceptions) and most Trump supporters believe that Donald Trump actually won the election and that the Democrats and Joe Biden stole it from him.

I’m puzzled. Even if it were possible that the Democrats did steal the election for Biden, why didn’t they rig the election for their Senate and House candidates? Why did they settle for a 50-50 split in the Senate? Why didn’t they get a 61-39 filibuster-proof majority? In case (Sen. Joe) Manchin gets ornery, why didn’t they secure better? Why not 65-35? Why stop there?
