Who Supported Trump’s Stolen Election Lie?

Rick Scott

The former 45th governor of Florida won his Senate seat in 2019 and recently ran unopposed for the chairmanship of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Although he considers himself a close ally of Trump, it should be noted that when Trump was at his most Trumpian, Scott was at pains to distance himself from Trump’s more controversial actions.

He also shares Trump’s views on immigration and was one of the most active cheerleaders when it came to building the border wall. So, it would come as little surprise when Trump lost the election that Scott would join the group of Republican senators that contested Biden’s election victory.

He voted to object to seating the electors from Pennsylvania but voted against the other objection raised for seating the electors from Arizona.
