Murskowski distanced herself from the dozen Senate Republicans saying she “swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution.”
“I will vote to affirm the 2020 presidential election,” Murkowski said in a statement. “The courts and state legislatures have all honored their duty to hear legal allegations and have found nothing to warrant overturning the results.”…
Democrats likewise have pushed back on the calls for an electoral commission, with Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., calling the demand a “publicity stunt.”
“For a group of my Republican colleagues to claim that they want an additional federal ‘commission’ to supersede state certifications when the votes have already been counted, recounted, litigated, and state-certified, amounts to nothing more than an attempt to subvert the will of the voters,” she said in a statement Saturday.
“It is undemocratic. It is un-American. And fortunately it will be unsuccessful. In the end, democracy will prevail.”
