(RepublicanDaily.org) – With the Electoral College vote set to go before Congress on January 6, there are growing rifts within the Republican party. Some feel important questions have been left unanswered regarding electoral fraud and mismanagement. Sources have reported that as many as 140 Congressional Republicans, including Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO), plan to object to the certification of the votes.
However, this plan has not met with universal approval. Several GOP members, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), have indicated their intention to ratify the vote.
Some have even been openly critical of GOP members who plan to challenge the Electoral College result. On Saturday, January 2, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) denounced the proposed move.
The egregious ploy to reject electors may enhance the political ambition of some, but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic. https://t.co/jKEvoXskbl

Romney stated the rejection of electors should be reserved for “the most extreme and unusual circumstances,” before going on to imply the outstanding allegations of election interference did not qualify as such.
It’s important to remember, of course, that Romney and President Trump have had a rocky relationship in the past. The senator was the only Republican to vote for the impeachment sham. Despite the impression he’s trying to create, this is likely a politically-motivated move on the senator’s part.
