Missouri Senator Josh Hawley (R) declared that he will not vote to certify the election certification process on January 6th, 2021.

“Millions of voters concerned about election integrity deserve to be heard. I will object on January 6 on their behalf,” Hawley tweeted Wednesday.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) praised Hawley’s move in objecting to the fraudulent election results from the six battleground states.

OAN’s Jack Posobiec tagged Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), David Perdue (R-Ga.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) following Hawley’s announcement, asking if they’d join his vote to object the fraudulent election results.

Read Hawley’s full statement:

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.

I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws. And I cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden. At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of voter fraud and adopt measures to secure the integrity of our elections. But Congress has so far failed to act.

For these reasons, I will follow the same practice Democrat members of Congress have in years past and object during the certification process on January 6 to raise these critical issues.
