In a statement, his office says the Senator will “object to highlight the failure of some states, including notably Pennsylvania, to follow their own election laws as well as the unprecedented interference of Big Tech monopolies in the election.”
“He will call for Congress to launch a full investigation of potential fraud and election irregularities and enact election integrity measures.”
Adding that in the past, “Democrats have previously objected during the certification process for the 2004 and 2016 Presidential elections.”
Senator Hawley said in the statement that, “Following both the 2004 and 2016 elections, Democrats in Congress objected during the certification of electoral votes in order to raise concerns about election integrity. They were praised by Democratic leadership and the media when they did. And they were entitled to do so. But now those of us concerned about the integrity of this election are entitled to do the same.”
The statement provides background information pertaining to past objections during the certification process.
