Rep. Kinzinger predicts over 100 Republicans will challenge Electoral College results

.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said Wednesday he believes more than 100 members of the GOP could challenge the Electoral College results when Congress certifies the electoral votes on Jan. 6.

During an interview with Charlie Sykes on “The Bulwark Podcast,” Kinzinger said he thinks “upwards of 100” GOP lawmakers could challenge the Nov. 3 election results.

“I hope I’m wrong,” Kinzinger said. “I’m guessing it could be upwards of 100.”

He added, “I’m just over the undermining of democracy and the frankly massive damage that’s being done with this.”

Joe Biden is expected to be certified as the 2020 presidential winner, but President DonaldTrump has not conceded and is encouraging members of the GOP to challenge the results.

There has been an increasing number of GOP lawmakers who have said they will support Trump’s effort in overturning the election results, including most recently Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Rep. Jefferson Van Drew (R-N.J.)

“Somebody has to stand up here,” Hawley said in an interview with Fox News Wednesday. “You’ve got 74 million Americans who feel disenfranchised, who feel like their vote doesn’t matter, and this is the one opportunity that I have as a United States senator, this process right here, my one opportunity to stand up and say something and that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”
