At least 25 Republicans plan on challenging electoral votes during next month's joint session of Congress, according to a tally by The Epoch Times.
"You've got 74 million Americans who feel disenfranchised, who feel like their vote doesn't matter. And this is the one opportunity that I have as a United States senator, this process right here, my one opportunity to stand up and say something, and that's exactly what I'm going to do," Hawley said on Wednesday.
Objections are filed in writing and must have support from at least one member of each chamber. If they do, they trigger a two-hour debate and a vote by the House of Representatives and the Senate. A simple majority in each chamber is required to uphold the challenge.
