Things are not looking good right now for Republicans. Almost every media outlet has called the two Senate races for the Democrats in Georgia already. Funny how they managed to do it in one night this time, right?
Meanwhile, today is the day for the electoral count, and Republican members of Congress plan to object the vote count. The objection may now be more important than ever.
According to Just the News, the number of state legislators has now ballooned up to more than 117 who are asking for that postponement from contested battleground states. The requests come in the form of various letters from those legislators in the contested states to Congress.
Pence has already signaled he was in supportive of the right to object by members of Congress and that he was bothered by the allegations of irregularities or unconstitutional actions by state election officials. But the question would be whether he would hold off and accede to the request to postpone for ten days.
One letter, signed by 88 state legislators, was organized by Got Freedom. The letter implored Pence. to hold off to give them time to investigate so they could either agree with the certification or decertify it. They said they could do so prior to the inauguration date, but that there was “evidence of a “coordinated and structured multi-state effort to undermine state law protecting election integrity” that needed to be addressed.
“We intend on fulfilling our oaths of office by properly investigating and determining whether the election should be certified, or decertified, by our respective state legislatures,” the letter added. “Additional time must be afforded for the legislatures to meet and for state legislators to fulfill their constitutional duties.”
