On Sunday, Senator Lindsey Graham pushed back against an effort to contest the results of the presidential election by GOP senators and senators-elect.
Graham, who is one of President Donald Trump’s closest allies said the effort is an unrealistic “political dodge.”
Senator Ted Cruz (Texas) is leading a group of eleven GOP senators that request a commission to be set up to investigate the election results.
They joined Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) in saying they would contest the results of the election.
“Proposing a commission at this late date — which has zero chance of becoming reality — is not effectively fighting for President Trump. It appears to be more of a political dodge than an effective remedy,” Graham tweeted Sunday along with a Fox News article about the effort by Cruz and others to set up an electoral commission to audit vote results in disputed states.
