MADISON, Wis. (AP) – One of President Donald Trump’s top reelection advisers says Republicans plan to make more aggressive use of Election Day monitoring of polling places.

Justin Clark discussed strategies for 2020 in wide-ranging remarks to influential Republicans in Wisconsin in an audiotape obtained by The Associated Press.

The recording includes Clark saying Republicans have “traditionally” suppressed votes in places before he goes on to talk about “protecting our voters.”

Clark told AP in a follow-up interview that his remarks referred to false accusations that the GOP engages in voter suppression and he wasn’t describing a strategy for the upcoming race.
