(AmericanProsperity.com) – Heading into the joint meeting of Congress to certify electoral votes, around a dozen US Senators planned to challenge either Pennsylvania’s or Arizona’s election results. However, nearly half of the GOP senators changed their minds, leaving only eight to stand against the alleged election fraud seen last year.
Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) shared his reasoning for voting against both Arizona and Pennsylvania’s electors:
Because I promised to raise these concerns on behalf of my constituents, I voted against seating the electors from Arizona and Pennsylvania.
— Senator Tommy Tuberville (@SenTuberville) January 7, 2021
The Senate voted 92-7 to dismiss the objection to Pennsylvania’s electors and 93-6 to dismiss Arizona votes. Senators who objected to one or both states included:
- Josh Hawley (R-MO)
- Ted Cruz (R-TX)
- Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS)
- Roger Marshall (R-KS)
- John Kennedy (R-LA)
- Rick Scott (R-FL)
- Cynthia Lummis (R-WY)
- Tommy Tuberville (R-AL)
While neither objection was sustained, these Senators did stand up for the constituents that asked them to fight for free and fair elections. These are the senators who will fight for election reform over the coming years, as well.
