More Republicans are vowing to challenge the Electoral College results when Congress convenes next week to count the votes from the 2020 presidential election.
Sen. Josh HawleyJoshua (Josh) David HawleyPush for ,000 stimulus checks hits Senate buzzsaw GOP Georgia senators throw support behind ,000 stimulus checks Five GOP senators to watch in next month’s Electoral College fight MORE (R-Mo.) on Wednesday added momentum to the long-shot bid to overturn the election when he announced he would object to Congress’s counting of the electoral votes on Jan. 6, making him the first GOP senator to join an effort launched by House conservatives.
The objection from Hawley, along with at least one House lawmaker, would ensure a debate and vote in the House and Senate despite no hard evidence showing widespread voter fraud.
“It’s pretty clear that the momentum is growing in support of the objections to states’ submittals of Electoral College votes because of their flawed election systems and render them unworthy of trust,” Rep. Mo BrooksMorris (Mo) Jackson BrooksTrump campaign asks Supreme Court to review Wisconsin challenge Five GOP senators to watch in next month’s Electoral College fight GOP seeks to avoid messy Trump fight over Electoral College MORE (R-Ala.), who is leading the charge on the House side, told reporters after a meeting at the White House earlier this month.
“We now in the House side are up to dozens of congressmen who are willing to object or co-sponsor objections to various states’ submittals, so we have more congressmen than we have states to object to,” he added.
According to sources familiar with the effort, Hawley’s participation has prompted a number of other GOP lawmakers to lend their support.
Here’s a look at the current and incoming House GOP lawmakers who have publicly voiced their support for the move.
