Rep. Lance Gooden of Terrell is one of the latest members of Congress to say he is going to object to the Electoral College certification on Jan. 6. Now, and declared that “On Monday I’m voting NO on veto override because I agree with @realDonaldTrump.”
The Terrell Republican said he was confident that another senator would step up and join the effort. Sen.-elect Tommy Tuberville of Alabama has indicated that he might object.
“Thank you President Trump for standing up to big tech, the CCP, and once again standing with the American people,” he continued.
“I urge my colleagues to do the same!” he added.
Gooden also tweeted:
I’m Lance Gooden.
I am proud to be the U.S. Congressman for Texas’ 5th Congressional District.
I am also proud to stand with @realDonaldTrump by OBJECTING on January 6th.
I call on every fellow member of Congress to do the same.
Gooden is not the only Texas Republican who has pledged to object to the Electoral College count. He signed a letter with Reps. Brian Babin of Woodville, Louie Gohmert of Tyler and Randy Weber of Friendswood saying they all would object to the results of the presidential election if Congress does not investigate claims of alleged voter fraud by Jan. 6.
In a letter to the senators, Gooden called for a full audit of ballots in Georgia, Arizona, Michigan and Pennsylvania, where the Trump campaign alleges fraud has occurred, despite little evidence.
“We must stand up for the tens of millions of Americans who want answers to the irregularities surrounding this election,” Gooden said in the letter. “It is our duty to ensure the integrity of our election is unwavering, and the American people deserve to feel confident their vote counts.”
