Appearing on NewsmaxTV, Rep. Andy Biggs said he supports Rep. Mo Brooks plan to challenge the electoral college votes.
“Yeah right now, i’m leaning in heavy support of that plan,” Biggs said “because we’ve seen so many allegations…let’s just say, like Rand Paul, I think there was a lot of fraud here.”
Senator Tuberville is reportedly still considering the move. President Trump has urged him to do so.
