  • GOP Rep. Chip Roy of Texas objected to seating 67 elected House members from battleground states today, in response to his colleagues that plan to object to certifying the presidential election results.
  • Roy said “it would confound basic human reason if the presidential results were to face objection while the congressional results of the same process escaped without public scrutiny.”
  • At least 140 House Republicans are planning to vote against certifying the presidential election results on Wednesday, though the effort cannot affect the results of the vote in any US state.
  • Roy is among a group of seven House Republicans that have said they do not support the effort to vote against certification of the Electoral College vote.
