Ted Cruz and Paul Gosar Team Up To Object to Arizona Electoral Results In Opening Minutes of Joint Session


Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Republican Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona brought Wednesday’s joint session of Congress to a swift halt by objecting to the Electoral College vote on behalf of Arizona.

“I rise for myself and 60 of my colleagues to object to the counting of the electoral ballots from Arizona,” Gosar said, according to C-SPAN.

When Vice President Mike Pence, who presided over the joint sessions, asked if the objection was sponsored by a senator, Cruz rose and — to the applause of GOP legislators, many in a standing ovation — said that it was.

The clerk of the joint session then read the text of the brief objection, which said the votes were not “regularly given.”
