Washington, January 3, 2021 | Roman Rodriguez (316-262-8992)
WASHINGTON – Today Rep. Ron Estes (R-Kansas) and Republican Reps. Mann and LaTurner announced their intent to object to certain states during the Jan. 6 Electoral College certification. They released the following statement:
"It is the duty of Congress to certify electors for the presidential election based on the laws passed by state legislators. With several states facing serious allegations of voter fraud and violations of their own state laws, the Kansas Republican delegation in the House will object to the certification of electors in multiple states on Jan. 6. This action is not taken lightly and comes after extensive study and research. Kansans deserve to know that all legal, and only legal, votes were counted. We hope our actions begin to restore the confidence of tens of millions of our fellow Americans that feel their sacred right to vote is under attack."
Ron Estes is a 5th generation Kansan and represents Kansas’ 4th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He serves on the House Committee on Ways and Means.
