Political Suicide: Word On Street Is Tom Cotton Will Lose His Next Election Because Of This Decision

Written By BlabberBuzz | Tuesday, 05 January 2021 16:30

Sen. Tom Cotton, who is seen as a prominent Republican in the GOP and a major ally for President Trump, said he will not challenge the counting of certified electoral votes during a mutual session of Congress later this week to verify Joe Biden's election victory.

At least a dozen Republican senators are anticipated to challenge Biden’s victory. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., was the first Republican to state intentions to oppose the certification. He said last week that he cannot vote to confirm without "raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws."

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said he will start an opposition unless there is an emergency 10-day examination of the results by an electoral commission.

The rejections will force votes in both the House and Senate, but none are expected to win.

Cotton said in the statement that he will "not oppose the counting of certified electoral votes on January 6." He said that opposing the votes will not give Trump a second term and will only "embolden those Democrats who want to erode further our system of constitutional government."

Cotton met with Republican Sens. Ben Sasse, Roy Blunt, and Mitt Romney, who have spoken out against the plan to challenge. The Wall Street Journal, mentioning an unnamed source, reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been telling associates that it was a wrong approach to contradict the results.

McConnell said from the Senate floor in mid-December, "Our country has, officially, a president-elect and a vice-president-elect. I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden. The president-elect is no stranger to the Senate. He's devoted himself to public service for many years."

Cotton’s announcement was seen by some Trump advocates on Twitter as complete treachery. Dan Whitfield, an Independent candidate for Senate from Arkansas, tweeted, "Cotton is only worried about his own presidential race in 2024."

The Arkansas Times called Cotton a "staunch Trump defender."

Cotton’s statement said that he is worried about "irregularities in the presidential election" and—like many Arkansans "disappointed with the election results."But he said the "Founders entrusted our elections chiefly to the states—not Congress." He also said that any adjudication should be reviewed in court, "not Congress."

Cruz told Fox News’ "Sunday Morning Futures" that the Supreme Court would be a "better forum" to vet election fraud matters, but the court did not take the cases. He said in an earlier statement that voter fraud has "posed a persistent challenge in our elections." But "by any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes."

Sen. Lindsey Graham, another top Trump companion, said in a statement Sunday that Cruz has a "high bar" to show there was proof of problems with the election. The South Carolina senator also said Cruz’s proposal has "zero chance of becoming reality."
