Kevin McCarthy Announces Support For Electoral College Challenge

(ReliableNews.org) – Questions continue to surround the integrity of the 2020 presidential election. Several House and Senate members plan on challenging the Electoral College ballots in several states over concerns of potential voting irregularities and election fraud when the chambers meet on January 6 to certify the election.

On January 3, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told The Hill he intended to support those efforts to challenge the Electoral College balloting outcome.

Continuing, he told The Hill he thought having a debate on the election results was warranted. How else could the country address problems with the election? he added.

McCarthy also indicated his support for a proposed 10-day audit of the election proposed by group senators led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) during an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro. McCarthy stressed that Americans deserve answers to their questions regarding the election during the January 2 interview.

Congress is set to meet in a joint session on January 6 to certify the election results. It is expected that objections to the certification of ballots will be raised at that time, along with the proposal for an election audit. We will keep you posted on events as they occur.
