This morning, Senator Josh Hawley became the first Senator to publicly commit to objecting to Joe Biden’s slate of electors on Jan. 6, when Congress votes to certify the 2020 presidential election.
In a statement, Hawley said he cannot certify the electoral results because some states like Pennsylvania “failed to follow their own state laws.”
Later in the day, Representative-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) wrote in a tweet that the word on Capitol Hill is that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may strike a deal to change the rules in how congressional members can object to Joe Biden’s slate of electors.
Greene did not elaborate or provide a source for her tweet.
