Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) said Thursday during an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” that Sen. Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) objection during the Electoral College certification process next week will fail.
Johnson said, “There’s a lot of misinformation on both sides. Some people on our side think just one House member, one senator objects, it immediately goes to a vote of the states, and then because we have more states in the House of Representatives, Trump can get re-elected. That’s not what happens.”
He added, “What happens is every member of the Senate, every member of the House votes to accept or reject that state’s slate of electors. I can’t imagine any scenario in which any House Democrats will vote to reject Joe Biden electors. So I think the result is inevitable.”
