“It’s a process that they have the right to initiate … I think certainly it will fail,” Hutchinson said during an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Hutchinson continued: “Joe Biden is our president-elect and he will be confirmed in that capacity.”…

Hutchinson, a Republican, noted Sunday that challenges to the election results have already been heard. State officials have insisted the elections ran smoothly and there was no evidence of fraud or other problems that would change the outcome. The states have certified their results as fair and valid. Of the more than 50 lawsuits the president and his allies have filed challenging election results, nearly all have been dismissed or dropped. He’s also lost twice at the U.S. Supreme Court.
