There is no chance that Republicans supporting Trump will be able to block the result, when Congress formally countes the Electoral College’s votes on Jan. 6, with the Senate most of the whip.

For Congress to contest the state’s election results, chiefs in both divisions must vote to uphold the objection, something that has never happened.

But Brooks only needs a GOP senator to force a debate and vote on any objection. If he succeeds, this will be the third time the Congress has had to debate the objection since 1887, according to the Congressional Research Service.

There are five Senate Republicans to watch in the Battle of Electoral College.

Sen-Elect Tommy Tuberville (ALA)

Tuberville does not join the Senate until January 3, but he is already causing headaches for the leadership.

Tuberville – who closely associated himself with Trump, defeating former Attorney General Jeff sessionJefferson (Jeff) Beauregard SessionsGop Tries to Avoid Trump Over Dirty from Electoral College Nicole Wallace asks Chris Christie if he’s trying to ‘remove Trump stinks’ ahead of legacy 2024 Barr leaves behind DOJ MORE The primary – and then defeating Democratic Sen. Doug Jones (Ala.) – is seen as a GOP senator, with Brooks most likely to join the effort.

Tuberville suggested in a video posted online by progressive activist Lauren Windsor that she would support challenging the results, saying, “You’re reading about this in the House.” We are going to do it in the Senate. ”

Tuberville’s campaign manager has also said he is “very seriously” objecting to Electoral College’s results next month.

Trump and his allies captured Tuberville’s possible objection, putting him in a high-profile political bond.

Trump revealed in a radio interview with his personal lawyer Rudy GiulianiRudy GiulianiWashington Post has identified Powell’s secret witness as a supporter of Trump. Powell says White House aides will not let him help Trump’s lawyers take disciplinary action over a wave of election suits. That he spoke with Tuberville. And amid reports that Tuberville could help challenge the results, Trump said on Twitter, calling him “a great champion and a man of courage” and that “more Republican senators should follow his lead.” ”

But the efforts of Senate GOP leaders are likely to withstand that he is going ahead or at least get a read on what he is thinking. A senior GOP senator said he expected McConnell to call Tuberville.

“I hope he doesn’t do it. I think it’s time … to move on,” Thun said of Tuberville. “The fact of the matter is that there is repeated litigation. … it’s time to be done with it. ”

Sen Kelly LoefflerKelly Loeffler Biden on working with Senate Republicans: ‘I will never publicly embarrass them’ The GOP attempts to avoid a dirty Trump fight over Electoral College Ospho, each rake with more than 0 million (Ga.)

Loeffler, who was appointed to the Senate in 2020, has been under close scrutiny as a potential candidate as she closely clung to Trump in the Georgia runoff election on 5 January.

Loeffler, who does not speak to reporters at the Capitol, has not accepted the presidential election Joe BidenJoe Bidenbrother Preview of Biden Advisor Richesati, appointed as lobbyist at Amazon Sunday, shows: COVID-19 relief awaits Trump’s signature; Government Continues Vaccine Roll Global COVID-19 Cases Over 80 MillionHas won and refused to say if she would object to the results of the Electoral College on 6 January.

Asked in a recent campaign stop, Loeffler denounced that “there is so much to play here in Georgia.”

“We have many investigations going on right now. We are in the courts watching this, and we need to continue this process. My attention is on 5 January today. We have to win that election.

Loeffler occupies a unique political position within the Senate Republican Caucus. Unlike his colleagues, who have guaranteed political careers that last longer than Trump’s White House tenure, Loeffler’s political future is in flux.

He needs Trump supporters to pull out in large numbers to win next month in Georgia, where he is battling for the final two years of retired Sen.

Paul is closely viewed as a potential ally of Brooks and his House colleagues.

The libertarian-leaning Republican senator is one of Trump’s closest allies in the Senate, and unlike many of his GOP allies, he has been willing to echo presidential presidential fraud claims, as the court noted, for lack of evidence Have moved the court. .

“Fraud occurred. In many ways the election was stolen, and the only way to fix it is to strengthen the laws in the future, ”Paul said during a Senate hearing this month with former President of Cyber ​​Chief Christopher Krebs.

Election experts have dismissed widespread fraud claims, as have many state officials, including Republicans.

Paul is known for being a thorn in the leadership’s side – he slowly drove a bipartisan defense bill earlier this month and is trying to throw sand into the procedural gear of a potential veto override. He was not on the caucus call where McConnell warned Republicans the following month, objecting.

When asked about his involvement in efforts to reverse the election results on January 6, Paul told reporters, “I haven’t thought about it or made any plans to do anything.”

Sen Josh HolleyJoshua (Josh) David Hollettramp left Washington in Limbo with a threat of relief. Congress Deals Coronovirus Relief, Government Money Hill’s Morning Report – Long-Term, Congress Reaches COVID-19 Relief Deal (Mo)

Hawley is facing duelism: He has closely associated himself with Trump, renaming Confederate-named military bases and incentive payments to the president as part of a huge year-end coronavirus virus deal The second round aligned with him in a fight to return.

But he was also seen as a potential 2024 presidential contender after skyrocketing the party ladder in the Senate in 2019. Hawley is trying to build his own brand as a conservative populist, but may also need to stay close to the president, who has a flirt with his own 2024 bid and a party-based Maintains strong grip.

Hawley is not the only up-and-comer in this category. Sen Tom cottonTom Bryant’s cottonconavirus relief deal hinges on negotiation over Fed lending powers Congress barrels toward veto clash with Trump defense bill battle 2024 GOP hopes (R-Ark.), Also considered close to Trump, has not said whether he will challenge the results in January. 6.

Hawley has not yet said whether he will challenge the election results when Congress counts Electoral College votes next month and said late last week that she was still unspecified.

Like the potential contenders for 2024 – Hawley and Cotton, Cruz refused to challenge the election results on 6 January.

Cruz, who came second in the 2020 GOP White House primary, had a combative relationship with Trump during the 2016 election, including his refusal to support Trump despite speaking at the GOP convention.

But Cruz threw his support behind Trump’s electoral fiasco, even as fellow Texas GOP Sen.

Brooks has informed the Senate GOP Steering Committee, of which Cruz is a member, as to his plan, as he has tried to win over key opponents.

Cruz said Monday that there were still many lawsuits pending, when asked if he would challenge the results next month. “We need to let the legal process come into play.”
