Murkowski says 'nothing to warrant overturning the results' as GOP group plans Electoral College challenge


Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski said she will vote to affirm the results of the presidential election hours after other members of her party said they would contest the Electoral College certification.

The Alaska Republican encouraged her fellow lawmakers in a Saturday afternoon statement to not challenge the certification and said that there is no credible evidence to show that President-elect Joe Biden’s win was not legitimate.

“I will vote to affirm the 2020 presidential election,” Murkowski said. “The courts and state legislatures have all honored their duty to hear legal allegations and have found nothing to warrant overturning the results.”

“I urge my colleagues from both parties to recognize this and to join me in maintaining confidence in the Electoral College and our elections so that we ensure we have the continued trust of the American people,” she added.
