Breaking: Mike Pence “Welcomes” Elector Challenge And Sends Message

Vice President Mike Pence “welcomes” the challenge of electors by House and Senate Republicans, according to a statement by his Chief of Staff Marc Short reported Saturday evening by Axios’ Jonathan Swan, who posted the statement to Twitter. Pence will preside over Wednesday’s joint session of Congress to certify the Electoral College vote. Pence successfully fought off a suit this week brought by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) that sough to nullify part of the 1887 Electoral Count Act so that Pence could exercise authority to accept or reject Electoral College votes rather than the largely procedural role spelled out in the act.

VP Chief of Staff Marc Short: “Vice President Pence shares the concerns of millions of Americans about voter fraud and irregularities in the last election…The Vice President welcomes the efforts of members of the House and Senate to use the authority they have under the law to raise objections and bring forward evidence before the Congress and the American people on January 6th.”
