Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Lance Gooden (R-TX) sent a letter to Texas Senators John Cornyn & Ted Cruz announcing his intention to reject the certification of the Electoral College vote and urging the two Senators to join him in doing so. The vote will be held by a Joint Session of Congress on January 6th, 2021.

The letter reads, in part: "We must stand up for the tens of millions ofAmericans who want answers to the irregularities surrounding this election. It is our duty to ensure the integrity of our election is unwavering, and the American people deserve to feel confident their vote counts."

Congressman Gooden has been a leading advocate for an independent investigation into election irregularities and voter fraud. He led over two dozen House Republicans in calling for the appointment of a special counsel to launch an election probe. He joined numerous efforts asking the Department of Justice and congressional leaders to examine potential wrongdoing, but there has been little action on their part.
