Madison Cawthorn is a new Republican Rep. from North Carolina.
As his first act of Congress, he will object to the Electoral College vote certification.
Democrats are already losing their minds over this. Let them.
The Associated Press reports:
Cawthorn says he will contest Biden’s win
Mountain Congressman Madison Cawthorn said he will contest the presidential election results on Jan. 6.
The congressional joint session to count electoral votes is generally a routine affair. But President Donald Trump’s repeated efforts to challenge Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential victory will bring more attention than usual to the Jan. 6 joint session of the Senate and the House.
The congressional count is the final step in reaffirming Biden’s presidential win, after the Electoral College officially elected him on Monday. The meeting is required by the U.S. Constitution, and includes several distinct steps.
A handful of House Republicans have signaled that they want to object to the results, a move that could force separate votes in the Senate and the House. But to do so, they would need a senator to sign on. And even if a senator did support the effort, the move would almost certainly fail.
The right to vote in a free and fair election is the cornerstone of our Republic. Attempts to subvert the Constitutional authority of state legislatures to conduct elections strikes at the very heart of representative government. I choose to stand in the breach, to fight for us. https://t.co/qmgG8o7qtF
