The Washington Post reports:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) plans to formally object to the certification of electors from Arizona during Wednesday’s joint session of Congress, according to a person familiar with the matter, ensuring that the duly certified results from a third state will be challenged by a GOP senator.
Cruz has led a coalition of 10 other GOP senators who have threatened objections during what is otherwise a pro forma process to ratify Democrat Joe Biden’s electoral college win unless Republicans secure an audit of the election results. But until Tuesday, Cruz had declined to identify a specific state whose electors he will challenge.
The person familiar with Cruz’s plans said the Texas senator, seen as a 2024 presidential hopeful, will join with Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) to contest the results from Biggs’s home state.
Joining Cruz in challenging the Arizona results will be an Arizona House member who was re-elected in the same election that he now says is fraudulent
