Jan Morgan, the former Arkansas gubernatorial candidate, slammed Senator Tom Cotton for announcing he will not object to the Electoral College votes.
Senator Cotton announced late on Sunday evening that he will not be joining the other Republican Senators who will challenge the Electoral College vote certification during the joint session of Congress on January 6th, and will instead be siding with Joe Biden.
Despite Cotton saying that he “shares the concerns of many Arkansans about irregularities in the presidential election,” especially regarding mail-in voting, he cannot support the “overturning” of the Electoral College votes by Congress, as “the Founders entrusted our elections chiefly to the states… [and] to the people – not Congress.”
He claimed that if Congress overturned the results, then it would “not only exceed [their allotted power by the Constitution], but also establish unwise precedents.” Cotton argued that any objection to “certified” electoral votes would not give President Trump a second term, but only “embolden those Democrats who want to erode further our system of constitutional government.”
