Tom Cotton Joins Lindsey Graham To Break With Donald Trump-Backing GOP Senators

I strongly suspect that the neocons are grooming this douchebag to be their new post-Trump frontman and that he will have enough appeal to the know-nothing right to make it happen. Trump’s torch will probably be passed to his kids or Mike Pence, or maybe Josh Hawley, and this guy is jockeying to be the neo-Reaganite/neocon alternative to Trump.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) has joined Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in breaking with his fellow Trump-supporting GOP colleagues in the U.S. Senate who plan to object to the certification of the 2020 election result.

Cotton said Congress upending the result would exceed its power and “establish unwise precedents,” while Graham said the effort has “zero chance of becoming reality,” marking a clear split within the Trump-friendly wing of the Senate GOP.

A group of 11 Republican senators led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will vote to reject electors from states where President Donald Trump disputes the election results at the joint session on January 6, unless there is a 10-day audit of election returns.
