Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) announced on Twitter Thursday that he plans to object to the Electoral College certification of certain states’ electors because of irregularities reported in the election there.
The states Duncan mentioned were Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, where judges or state officials changed the rules by which voting was conducted, which is unconstitutional.
“The 2020 election saw unprecedented institutional issues like states changing their voting systems in violation of their state constitutions, unelected bureaucrats changing election law instead of lawmakers themselves, poll watchers prohibited from doing their jobs, failure to properly scrutinize the validity of mail-in voting, and the list goes on. We need to shed light on the issues that took place during the 2020 election to preserve our electoral system for generations to come,” Duncan said in a statement.
I plan to object for the people of the Third District of South Carolina and the millions of Americans who are demanding transparency into the 2020 election. We the people know this is a pivotal decision for our great country,” he said.
One senator and one representative are needed to challenge results and have a floor debate on them. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has said that he will also challenge results in those states.
