Virginia Congressman Rob Wittman will object to electors from contested states when a Joint Session of Congress meets in Washington on Wednesday.
Wittman, a Republican representing the Commonwealth’s 1st District, made his intentions clear in a recent Facebook post expressing his “full support” for plans to object to contested electors.
Last month, he joined over half of his Republican House colleagues in signing on to an Amicus Brief in support of Texas vs Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
“I am in full support of objecting to electors in order to debate and examine evidence of election results in states where Constitutional questions have been raised,” wrote Wittman. “In fact, in December I joined a majority of my Republican colleagues and Leadership in the House of Representatives in sending an Amicus Brief to the Supreme Court in reference to Texas v. Pennsylvania, et al. relating to the November general election.”
Wittman continued, “Like many of my constituents, I have concerns that several states failed to follow the Constitution in conducting elections and deserve scrutiny to ensure a fair and free election.”
In making the announcement, Wittman officially joins a growing list of Republican lawmakers, led by Alabama’s Mo Brooks in the House and Missouri’s Josh Hawley in the Senate, who have committed to fight for President Trump and the American voter.
Wittman will be joined in his objection by fellow Virginian Bob Good, a freshman representative who knocked off never-Trump incumbent Denver Riggleman during a 2020 nominating convention.
“I’m going to fight with the others in Congress who are going to challenge this,” Good told Fox News. “We’re going to keep fighting until every legal vote is counted and only legal votes are counted.”
