On Monday, Kamala Harris was asked by a reporter whether she sees Republicans in Congress (who plan to challenge Joe Biden’s electoral college win on Wednesday) as an attempted coup. She responded by saying: “Let me just tell you something, we are going to be Inaugurated. Period.”
Eleven current and incoming Republican Senators said they would join a group of lawmakers to object the Electoral College votes of some states on Wednesday unless Congress appoints a commission to conduct an emergency, 10-day audit of the election results.
The GOP senators who signed onto the effort are Ted Cruz of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, James Lankford of Oklahoma, Steve Daines of Montana, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee and Mike Braun of Indiana. It was also joined by Senators-elect Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Roger Marshall of Kansas, Bill Hagerty of Tennessee and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama.
In a statement released Saturday, the senators and senators-elect said the commission was needed because the 2020 presidential election was rife with “unprecedented allegations of voter fraud, violations and lax enforcement of election law, and other voting irregularities.”
Speaking to a crowd in Georgia today, Vice President Mike Pence said that President Donald Trump and Republicans will “have our day in Congress.”
“I know we all got our doubts about the last election. … I promise you, come this Wednesday, we’ll have our day in Congress. We’ll hear the objections. We’ll hear the evidence, but tomorrow is Georgia’s day,” Pence told the crowd in GA while campaigning for Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and David Perdue.
