Who Supported Trump’s Stolen Election Lie?

Tommy Tuberville

No sooner than taking office in January 2021, Tuberville would be another senator who joined the group of Republican senators who announced they would formally object to counting electoral votes.

Like many other Republican senators, Tuberville voted in support of an objection to Arizona’s electoral votes and an objection to Pennsylvania’s electoral votes, however, the newly elected Republican from Alabama would have a more important role in the eyes of Trump.

While pro-Trump supporters stormed the Capitol and members of the House were taken to a secure location, Tuberville received a call from Trump, well, kind of….. he dialed the wrong number and got Utah senator Mike Lee who gave Tuberville his phone.

Trump tried to convince him to make additional objections to the Electoral College vote in a futile effort to block Congress’ certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s win.
