This Republican Senator might force one vote to try and keep Trump as President
President Trump is running out of time to contest the 2020 election.
Tens of millions of his supporters believe Joe Biden would be an illegitimate President.
And this Republican Senator might force one vote to try and keep Trump as President.
Both houses of Congress will meet on January 6 to certify the results of the Electoral College.
That is really the last time for President Trump to make his case that Joe Biden only won the election through voter fraud in key swing states.
Conservatives in the House of Representatives like Mo Brooks and Jim Jordan intend to object to the 306 to 232 Electoral College vote tally.
But to force a debate on the Electoral College results, they need one member of the Senate to join them in objecting.
The last time this happened was in 2004 when California Democrat Barbara Boxer objected to results showing George W. Bush winning Ohio over John Kerry.
So far, no Republican Senator has committed to filing an objection on the President’s behalf.
But in a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul declared that the fraud in the election was real and that millions of Americans believe the election was stolen.
“The fraud happened. The election in many ways was stolen, and the only way it will be fixed is by in the future reinforcing the laws,” Senator Paul declared.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Republicans on caucus wide conference call not to object to certification of the Electoral College because RINOs were afraid to challenge the results.
But Senator Paul said he was not on that call and made no commitments one way or the other.
“I haven’t thought about it, or made any plans to do anything,” Paul added.
