Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., Said on Thursday that he’s “leaning in heavy support of” Rep. Mo Brooks’, R-Ala., plan to contest the 2020 presidential election.
Biggs told “American Agenda” that “right now, I’m leaning heavily into supporting that plan because we’ve seen so many allegations.”
He added that he agreed with Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., when he claimed that widespread fraud occurred in the election.
“That’s important when you consider if you’re gonna object,” he said, adding that Republicans are drawing from Democrats’ playbook.
“Don’t ever forget that in 2017 that’s exactly what Democrats did when they objected to the sitting of President Trump’s electors, and they did it in 2005, so this is not without precedent, what Mo’s suggested, and I’m with him on that because there’s so much fraud out there, we actually need to make the point.”
Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., who has alleged widespread fraud in the Nov. 3 election, on Wednesday said he’s “optimistic” there will ultimately be challenges to the Jan. 6 certification by Congress of Joe Biden as the next president.
“Any two people, one congressman and one senator, who object can force a House floor or Senate floor vote,” he said of the strategy.
“I am more than happy, along with a significant number of my colleagues, to object” in the House meeting on Jan. 6.
“The question is whether a senator is also willing to stand up and fight for their country,” he said.
“I’m fairly optimistic that there will be one or more senators who will be willing to object … we’ll see how it plays out,” he added.
Brooks also pushed back on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s warning not to take that step.
“We can fight for our republic or we could surrender,” Brooks said in response to the Kentucky Republican’s comments. “I am not a member of the surrender caucus.”
“If you fight, you have a chance for success,” he said. “There is no republic in America if elections can be stolen.”
