Things Are Becoming more Clear why Mitch McConnell Wants No Challenge Results for Biden
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reportedly urged GOP senators to refrain from objecting to electoral votes when it comes time to count them in Congress next month, making the remarks on a caucus call Tuesday.
McConnell, who formally Recognized Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on Tuesday, reportedly told colleagues that an objection “isn’t in the best interest of everybody,” per the Hill.
McConnell warned that any GOP senator who signed onto a House Republican objection to a state’s electoral votes would then force the Senate to debate and vote on the objection, putting fellow GOP senators in a bad position.
McConnell was not the only Republican leader to make the request, with Republican Whip John Thune (R-SD) and Rules Committee Chairman Roy Blunt (R-MO) making the same call.
