Sens. J.D. Vance, R-Ohio, and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Sunday that they will accept the results of the 2024 presidential election provided it鈥檚 a fair contest 鈥 a commitment that several other top Republicans have refused to make.

Vance said on CNN鈥檚 "State of the Union" that he plans to accept the results in 2024, even if聽President Joe Biden听飞颈苍蝉.

鈥淚f it鈥檚 a free and fair election, I will accept the results whoever wins,鈥 said Vance, adding that he still expects former President Donald Trump聽to be the victor.聽

Sen. JD Vance, R-Ohio, listens during a news conference on the 91影视 Southern Border at the 91影视 Capitol on February 06, 2024 in Washington, DC.

Vance, who is one of Trump's potential vice presidential picks, said he also thinks every Republican 鈥渨ill enthusiastically accept the results鈥 if it鈥檚 a 鈥渇ree and fair鈥 election. Following the 2020 election, 147 Republican lawmakers did not vote to certify the results of the race, though there isn't evidence that the contest was impacted by voter fraud.

Graham on Sunday echoed Vance's commitment. When asked if he would accept the 2024 election results 鈥渘o matter who wins鈥 on NBC鈥檚 "Meet the Press," the South Carolina lawmaker also said he would, like he did in 2020, provided there鈥檚 no 鈥渕assive cheating.鈥澛

Vance and Graham鈥檚 comments differ from another possible Trump running mate 鈥 Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C. 鈥 who聽did not commit to accepting聽the outcome of the 2024 election in an interview on NBC鈥檚 "Meet the Press" last Sunday.

Scott said he would not answer the 鈥渉ypothetical question鈥 and instead emphasized his belief that Trump would win in November.
