Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., who has alleged widespread fraud in the Nov. 3 election, on Wednesday said he’s “optimistic” there will ultimately be challenges to the Jan. 6 certification by Congress of Joe Biden as the next president.
In an interview on Newsmax TV’s “American Agenda,” Brooks declared he was “not a member of the surrender caucus.”
“Any two people, one congressman and one senator, who object can force a House floor or Senate floor vote,” he said of the strategy.
“I am more than happy, along with a significant number of my colleagues, to object” in the House meeting on Jan. 6.
“The question is whether a senator is also willing to stand up and fight for their country,” he said.
“I’m fairly optimistic that there will be one or more senators who will be willing to object … we’ll see how it plays out,” he added.
Brooks also pushed back on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s warning not to take that step.
“We can fight for our republic or we could surrender,” Brooks said in response to the Kentucky Republican's comments. “I am not a member of the surrender caucus.”
“If you fight, you have a chance for success,” he said. “There is no republic in America if elections can be stolen.”
