Five GOP Reps Vote Against Peaceful Transfer Measure

The Hill reports:

The House adopted a resolution on Tuesday to affirm the chamber’s support for a peaceful transfer of power after President Trump last week declined to commit to it if he loses reelection.

Lawmakers adopted the measure in a bipartisan 397-5 vote, with all of the votes in opposition coming from Republicans. Tuesday’s vote followed one last week on a virtually identical measure in the Senate, which lawmakers in that chamber passed unanimously.

Not a single GOP lawmaker spoke in support of the measure during House floor debate. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said last Thursday that Trump will “accept the result of a free and fair election.”
