Cruz to lead group of GOP senators in challenge to Electoral College certification
(Worthy News) – Sen. Ted Cruz is leading a delegation of Republican senators who are planning to challenge the Electoral College certification and demand an emergency audit.
Cruz is joined by several other GOP lawmakers who said in a statement that “voter fraud has posed a persistent challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed.”
The senators joining the Texas Republican in objecting are Ron Johnson of Missouri, James Lankford of Oklahoma, Steve Daines of Montana, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, and Mike Braun of Indiana. Senators-elect Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Roger Marshall of Kansas, Bill Hagerty of Tennessee, and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama also signed onto the statement.
The group called for the appointment of an “electoral commission” with full investigatory authority to carry out a 10-day emergency audit of the Nov. 3 election results in the states where President Trump and his allies have alleged fraud. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
