With the polling station voting, more Republicans recognize Biden as elected president

 

In the days following the November 3 election, only a handful of GOP senators – mostly moderates – recognized Biden’s victory and elected Vice President Kamala Harris. Since then, many of the House Republicans have replaced President Trump’s legal challenges.

That changed on Monday. In some cases, like that of Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, they are a little reluctant to accept it.

“No matter what Chuck Grassley thinks, the Constitution has answered this question for you,” Grassley said moments after the California electorate claimed Biden’s victory. “That’s all I say about it. ”

However, a new wave of members has extended to plans for an upcoming Biden presidency.

“It certainly looks that way, and I think the time has come to take the side and form a new administration,” said Capitol Hill Pool Reporter Ms. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia.

Others in that camp included Senate Majority Whip John Thune of South Dakota and Sens. Roy Blunt of Missouri, John Cornyn of Texas, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Kevin Cramer of North Dakota.

“Once you have to stop the music. And I think if the election colleague resolves the issue today, it’s time for everyone to move on,” Thune told reporters.

Tillis said Biden is the president-elect, awaiting further legal issues.

“He’s a supposed president,” Tillis said. “But I do not want to drop valid legal disputes that will be resolved in the next two weeks. ”

When asked, Cramer paused before using the phrase ‘elected president’ to describe Biden, but admitted that it seemed so.

“I guess if that’s what you’re officially calling someone after school, then I’m fine with that,” Cramer said.

Ohio Sen. Rob Portman of the House of Representatives was among those who made clear statements claiming victory.

“While I support President Trump, today’s election school is a clear sign that Joe Biden is now elected president,” he said.

Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander took the recognition a step further and urged Trump to end his demands.

“The presidential election is over. The states have confirmed the vote. The courts have settled the dispute. Voters have voted. I hope President Trump will put the country first, be proud of its tremendous success and help the president. Biden chose to get out of this. “a good start,” said Alexander.

Yet many of their colleagues are still dissidents.

And some declined to comment, including Kentucky Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who did not respond to repeated questions from reporters on Monday.

“I would call him Joe until he was sworn in,” South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said, before noticing the legal challenges.

Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma and John Barrasso of Wyoming were among those still unprepared on Monday to greet the president-elect.

‘Not yet,’ said Inhofe.

Trump and Republicans’ unsuccessful attempts to stop the election – citing unsubstantiated allegations of widespread electoral fraud – are part of one reason Michigan MP Paul Mitchell told CNN on Monday that he was leaving. his party to become independent.
