Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told Breitbart News on Tuesday that Congress is the “final arbiter” of presidential elections during an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
“Late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that the ultimate date of significance is January 6,” Jordan said. “It’s in the 12th Amendment, and then when you go back and you look at the Constitution, Article I, Section 4, the time, place, and manner for holding elections shall be determined in each state by the legislature thereof.”
“Article II, Section 1 says each state shall appoint in such manner as the legislature may direct, not as the Secretary of State may direct, not as the governor may direct,” Jordan ontinued.
Marlow invited Jordan’s response to Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Mike Lee (R-UT), who have both stated they oppose some Republican colleagues’ commitment to challenge electors from the states of Arizona
