Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz has joined the effort with about a dozen Republican senators that will raise objections on Jan. 6 to Joe Biden’s election victory, according to a joint statement from the lawmakers.

Cruz and 10 other Republican senators or senators-elect said in a statement they would raise objections in Congress on Jan. 6.

It is when Congress is required by the U.S. Constitution to meet and accept the results of the Electoral College, a gathering that is typically a formality.
