(ConservativeHub.com) – Although the Electoral College cast their votes for the next president of the United States on Monday, December 14, the results remain highly disputed by President Donald Trump and his supporters. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and other leading Republicans say they still see a “narrow path” to President Trump’s victory through the courts.
Republicans can challenge the Electoral College votes on January 6 when Congress meets to receive those results. However, both a Senator and Representative must introduce a challenge in each chamber. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) has already vowed to do so. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) recently told reporters he is open to filing an objection, depending on the outcome of the president’s legal challenges to the election.

The potential for the success of any challenge remains unclear. For it to succeed, both the House and Senate would need to vote to throw out the results of a particular state or group of states.
Most experts consider this option to be a longshot approach at best. In the meantime, the president vows to persist with his challenges of the election results; several lawsuits continue working their way through the courts.
