Eleven Republican senators, led by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, announced Saturday that they would object to the certification of states’ Electoral College votes when Congress meets on Jan. 6.
“Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states,” the statement, co-signed by Cruz and 10 other GOP senators, said. “Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.”
“Accordingly, we intend to vote on Jan. 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified,’ unless and until that 10-day emergency audit is completed,” the statement adds.
