GOP congressman Mo Brooks said he will challenge the electoral college votes when Congress plans to certify the results on January 6. On Wednesday, the Alabama lawmaker told reporters he will likely challenge the certification process even if no one else joins him.
In order to force Congress to bring the matter to a vote, one senator and one House representative must challenge the electorate. So far, it’s not clear if any senators plan to contest the electoral college results.
This comes just weeks after Brooks spoke on the House floor, where he highlighted that Congress certifies the election.
“Earlier I cited constitutional and federal law mandating that Congress, not the Supreme Court, determines whether to accept or reject electoral college votes,” he stated. “And Congress, not the Supreme Court, has the final verdict on presidential elections.”
In my most recent House Floor speech, I share my personal experience as a voter fraud & election theft target when, in 1982, as a Republican candidate for Alabama House District 18, Democrats sought to steal the election by rigging voting machines. pic.twitter.com/iVlQamFY5O

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign has continued to challenge the election results while making their case before courts and state legislative officials.
