This is a huge disappointment. It was expected that Senator Tom Cotton would have joined the 12 other Republican senators in objecting to the Electoral College certification.
It has been reported that Senator Cotton wants to take a run at the presidency in 2024. Well, with this decision Senator Cotton just terminated his chance at ever becoming president. In fact, he may get primaried out of his senate seat in the future for this decision.
How can you certify an election when the numbers being certified are verifiably WRONG. You will see the real numbers tonight during my speech, but especially on JANUARY 6th. @SenTomCotton Republicans have pluses & minuses, but one thing is sure, THEY NEVER FORGET!

Trump attacks Tom Cotton for declining to object to Electoral College certification
By Axios, January 4, 2020
President Trump turned on Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) on Monday after the Republican senator warned that the GOP effort to oppose certifying Joe Biden’s victory could “establish unwise precedents” and “take away the power to choose the president from the people.”
Why it matters: Cotton, a close ally of Trump who praised the president at the Republican National Convention, is one of a growing number of Republicans who have denounced plans by colleagues to object to certifying Biden’s Electoral College vote.
- Cotton is widely viewed as a potential 2024 Republican presidential candidate.
- Sens. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who are also rumored to be considering 2024 bids, are leading the efforts to oppose certification.
What he’s saying: On Twitter, Trump repeated his unfounded claim that the election was rigged and said “the real numbers” would be revealed during his speech on Monday night.
“@SenTomCotton Republicans have pluses & minuses, but one thing is sure, THEY NEVER FORGET!” Trump tweeted.
