Ted Cruz and ten other Republican senators are going to object to the Electoral College vote for Joe Biden this week.
This might not really change anything, but it is a disaster for Joe Biden and the Democrats.
It will cast an ugly shadow over Biden because it is a public acknowledgement that so many people believe the election was stolen.
The Hill reports:
11 Senate Republicans say they will oppose Electoral College results Wednesday
Eleven Senate Republicans on Saturday announced that they will vote for objections to the Electoral College results Wednesday, when Congress convenes in a joint session to formally count the vote.
GOP Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Ron Johnson (Wis.), James Lankford (Okla.), Steve Daines (Mont.), John Kennedy (La.), Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.) and Mike Braun (Ind.) and Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis (Wyo.), Roger Marshall (Kan.), Bill Hagerty (Tenn.) and Tommy Tuberville (Ala.) said in a joint statement that they will vote against accepting the election results until there is a 10-day audit.
“Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states,” they said. “Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.
“Accordingly, we intend to vote on Jan. 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’ … unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed,” they added.
This is a big deal.
Congratulations to Ted Cruz and these Senate colleagues for stepping up against the mob!https://t.co/0xEMT8gzdY

Democrats and the media want to pretend that millions of Trump voters don’t exist and that their concerns aren’t real.
That’s not going to happen.
