This is how you do it!
Stand firm – and hold the line!
That’s exactly what Jim Jordan is doing.
Jim Jordan declared:
No. No way, no way, no way. We should still try to figure out exactly what took place here. And as I said that includes, I think, debates on the House floor — potentially on Jan. 6.
Did you catch that?
We wrote previously about the Electoral Count Act.
Just 1 House Representative and 1 Senator need to join forces to challenge a state’s results.
Is Jim Jordan hinting that he will be willing to stand up and challenge the election results?
Time will tell…
But his fighting spirit is very promising.
More details below:
The best part?
It’s not just Jim Jordan.
Multiple House Republicans are encouraging Trump to keep fighting and to refuse to concede!
Is the Republican party FINALLY growing a pair?
President Donald Trump’s staunchest defenders on Capitol Hill are urging him not to concede even after President-elect Joe Biden wins the Electoral College vote next week, calling on their party’s leader to battle it out all the way to the House floor in January as he makes unsubstantiated claims of widespread election fraud.
The view of Trump’s defenders is at odds with that of many top congressional Republicans, including leaders of the Senate, who believe the election will be over next Monday when electors cast their votes and make Biden’s win official — even though the Democrat’s victory in the presidential race has been clear for weeks.
But conservative House Republicans argue that next week doesn’t mark the end of Trump’s desperate efforts to overturn the election results, which he has failed to do through scores of fruitless lawsuits and brazen efforts to pressure state and local leaders to subvert the will of voters and appoint new slates of electors to the Electoral College. They said that Congress should engage in a full-throated debate over the results in key states because of their allegations of fraud, which have yet to be borne out in court.
Asked if Trump should concede next Monday, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio said bluntly: “No. No way, no way, no way.”
“We should still try to figure out exactly what took place here. And as I said that includes, I think, debates on the House floor — potentially on January 6,” Jordan, a trusted Trump confidant, told CNN.
It is not unusual for a losing candidate’s most fervent supporters to take their case to the House floor — something that occurred after the 2016, 2004 and 2000 presidential races. But it is unusual for the losing candidate to mount a weeks-long public campaign aimed at sowing discord and distrust over a pillar of democracy, something that Trump has done relentlessly since losing the race.
Even if Trump loses a bevy of GOP support for his unprecedented quest after next week, the backing of his staunchest supporters is likely to only encourage the mercurial President to continue his barrage of attacks against the integrity of the elections.
Indeed, the efforts to change the outcome of the election are destined to fail but are bound to engender distrust over the election results despite Republican and Democratic assertions that the election was safe and secure and that no amount of fraud had been discovered that would change the ultimate result that Biden had been elected the 46th President of the United States.
“That’s a ways away,” Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Florida Republican another close Trump ally, said when asked if Trump should concede after next week. “There are members who believe there could be value in having substantive debate of what occurred in states with substantial irregularities,” he said. “I don’t believe that 10 hours of debate on that subject would impair the union.”
Asked if he considers the election over on December 14, Rep. Andy Biggs, who chairs the House Freedom Caucus, said: “I’m exhausting every option before I consider that.”
Courage is contagious.
We hope that more people are inspired by the fighting spirit of Jim Jordan and these House Republicans.
We must not only “hold the line,” but PUSH the line foward.
If you believe that President Trump won, then we CANNOT allow the Left to steal this election… or else we will never have another free election again!
We must get to the TRUTH and find out who legitimately won the 2020 presidential election!
We need more people like @Jim_Jordan in Congress!

Asked if Trump should concede once electors vote on Dec. 14, Jim Jordan said: "No. No way, no way, no way."
"We should still try to figure out exactly what took place here.” Conservative Rs press for floor fight, tho it stands little chance of succeeding https://t.co/fAgbMqM1Hr

Re-check signatures on mail-in ballots.
It’s not hard to ensure election integrity.
