MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s Republican congressional delegation is split over whether to confirm the Electoral College vote won by Joe Biden, with at least two planning to object and one saying such a move would go down a “dangerous path.”
U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and Rep. Tom Tiffany plan to object on Wednesday.
Gov. Tony Evers created a petition in hopes Se. Johnson would not delay Congress' certification.
We need your help -- sign our petition now to tell Ron Johnson to listen to WI voters and certify Joe Biden as our 46th President! https://t.co/npaFOLxKkq— Tony Evers (@Tony4WI) January 6, 2021
Rep. Mike Gallagher says he won’t and has urged other Republicans to join him.
Wisconsin’s three other Republicans in Congress — Bryan Steil, Glenn Grothman and Scott Fitzgerald — have not said whether they will object and did not immediately respond to messages ahead of the vote. Biden defeated Trump in Wisconsin by nearly 21,000 votes.
