11 Senators from the US Republican Party, led by the representative of the state of Texas Ted Cruise, plan to oppose the voting results and appeal the decision of the Electoral College. Republican Senators Call for Reconsideration of Election Voting Results US President in “conflicting” states, writes The Hill.
Ted Cruz (from Texas), Ron Johnson (from Wisconsin), James Lankford (from Oklahoma), Steve Danes (from Montana), John F. Kennedy (from Louisiana), Marsha Blackburn ( from Tennessee) and Mike Brown (from Indiana), and Cynthia Lammis (from Wyoming), Bill Hagerty (from Tennessee) and Tommy Tuberville (from Alabama).
Senators are urging Congress to create a special commission to review the voting results within 10 days. On January 6, Republican senators plan to vote against the enrollment of electoral votes from the disputed states.
However, it is likely that such a protest from Republican senators will not significantly affect the result, and Congress will approve the voting results.

Or will the Republican Trumpet simply change to the Democratic Bidenian?
