Sen. Tom Cotton, the Arkansas Republican joined three other GOP senators, who have declared their intention not to oppose the certification of the electoral college results on January 6.
“I share the concerns of many Arkansans about irregularities in the presidential election, especially in states that rushed through election-law changes to relax standards for voting-by-mail,” said Cotton in a statement released late Sunday.
He went on to say that he supports a commission that would “study the last election and propose reforms to protect the integrity of our elections.”
I’m grateful for what the president accomplished over the past four years, which is why I campaigned vigorously for his reelection. But objecting to certified electoral votes won’t give him a second term—it will only embolden those Democrats who want to erode further our system of constitutional government.”
