Republican lawmakers are asking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to contest the state’s electors.
They believe there are too many irregularities and that there are still too many lingering questions.
Will McConnell stand with them?
27 GOP Pa. Lawmakers Urge McConnell to Contest Electors
Republican state legislators in Pennsylvania are urging Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to contest the results of the state’s 20 electors.
The request was made in a letter signed by 27 GOP state lawmakers, urging McConnell to “dispute the certification until an investigation is completed” in election irregularities and violations of state election law, Newsweek reported.
“Without a thorough investigation into these allegations, the certification of the Pennsylvania election results is suspect at best,” the letter read, per the report.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and Democrat leaders violated state election law “by eliminating signature verification, postmarks, and due dates while allowing the proliferation of drop boxes with questionable security measures and the unauthorized curing of ballots, as well as the questionable treatment of poll watchers,” the letter claimed.
It added allegations that due process was violated by the state courts and Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, who declined to address election results that “were so fraught with inconsistencies, improprieties, and irregularities that the results for the office of President of the United States cannot be determined in our state.”
McConnell is in a very difficult position here. He had better choose wisely.

McConnell runs the risk of further alienating millions of Trump voters.
That would not be smart.
