Hawley Continues Objection to Electoral College Certification

Despite violence breaking out at the U.S. Capitol Wednesday to derail the certification of election results, U.S. Senator Josh Hawley is doubling down on his challenge to the election process. On the Senate floor Wednesday night, Hawley, a Republican, says those who engage in violence will be prosecuted. But he says millions of Americans are concerned about election fraud.

“This is the place where those objections are to be heard and dealt with, debated and finally resolved – in this lawful means, peacefully, without violence, without attacks, without bullets,” says Hawley.

Hawley voted against Arizona’s and Pennsylvania’s election. The Senate overwhelmingly supported the election results — including GOP leaders, who asserted state’s rights and results approved by each state.
