Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said several Republican senators are objecting to the electoral votes for Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Georgia during the Joint Session of Congress on Wednesday.
Brooks, in an announcement on Twitter, said he “need[s] more” senators to join GOP representatives in objecting to electoral votes in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Nevada.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Pa.), the first senator to announce a challenge, signed on to object to the electoral votes in Pennsylvania, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said he’s objecting to votes in Arizona, and Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) is objecting to votes in Georgia, according to the Alabama republican.
“LOTS of Congressmen object to AZ GA MI NV PA WI electoral college votes. In Senate, Hawley=PA Cruz=AZ Loeffler=GA, so battle engaged there. STILL NEED SENATORS FOR MI NV WI!” Brooks wrote on Twitter. “America – urge your senators to fight voter fraud & election theft!”
Brooks on Monday was seen signing written objections to all six states. Those states were flagged by President Donald Trump and his team for having rampant voter fraud, irregularities, or unconstitutional laws passed to relax mail-in ballots.
The challenge requires both a representative and a senator to carry out. Then, an hourslong debate ensues on a state’s electoral votes before a simple majority vote is held on whether to certify that states’ electoral votes. The House is controlled by Democrats while a number of GOP senators have said they don’t support the challenge.
Hawley revealed that Antifa activists protested outside his home in Washington, demanding that he drop the electoral challenge, as his wife and newborn were in the house.
“Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel,” he wrote, adding that they “screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door.”
Cruz’s decision to object to Arizona’s electoral votes came after he and about 10 other senators—other than Hawley—released a letter over the past weekend vowing to support challenges unless a commission was formed to carry out an emergency audit.
