Senator Ron Johnson said the approval of an electoral commission “has to be a bipartisan agreement.”
Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson joined a group of Republican senators led by Ted Cruz over the weekend in announcing that they would object to the certification of the Electoral College results.
The senators will take their stand during a joint session of Congress on Jan. 6. Senator Johnson said this week that the possibility of an electoral commission to review the results of the presidential election is “a long shot, at best,” but said that is “not a reason not to try.”
“There is an issue here that needs to be investigated,” Johnson said. He added that “Democrats, leading up to the election, used COVID to exploit vulnerabilities. They pushed every type of reform to relax controls and standards. They disallowed and denied Republican observers and watchers access.”

The senators released a statement calling on Congress to appoint a commission to conduct a 10-day emergency audit of the election returns in states where the results are disputed. They stated that they intend to vote on Jan. 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not “regularly given” and “lawfully certified.”
Millions of Americans deserve to have their voices heard after the shady events surrounding the 2020 election. We should continue to support calls to investigate this corruption. Our rights and American values are on the line if Democrats get away with stealing this election.
