Bishop Objects to GA, PA, MI & WI Electoral Certifications

Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC—Congressman Dan Bishop (NC-09) will object to the elector certifications of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

“In the 2020 election, the national Democratic Party carried out a highly coordinated, massively financed, nationwide campaign to displace state regulation of absentee ballots by means of a flood of election-year litigation.  This effort was designed to overwhelm the judicial system and disrupt the administration of the election,” said Rep. Bishop.  “In support of the effort, Democrats’ national litigation leaders employed unethical procedural jockeying, including forum shopping, repetitive suits and collusive settlements with cooperating Democrat officials, state and local.  The Democrats’ objectives were to weaken ballot security, undermine positive identification of voters, and provide opportunities for post-election ballot-box stuffing.  This has been a national, partisan attack on the Constitutional delegation of authority to regulate elections specifically to state legislatures. 

“Tomorrow, January 6, 2021, Congress will meet for the count of the electoral vote for President of the United States.  Because the Democrats’ campaign of litigation has tainted some states’ elections, I will join in objections to those states’ electors.  I consider this to be an obligation of utmost gravity, predicated on my oath to defend the Constitution, and I hope that the controversy at hand will lead to restoring the administration of elections as the Constitution envisions,” concluded Bishop.
