A running list of all election deniers going to Congress in 2023


As the dust settles after Tuesday’s midterm elections, a troubling trend in the GOP is coming into focus: By 2023, more than 160 Republicans will sit in Congress who have denied or questioned Democrat Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential victory.

Some will sit at the highest levels of House leadership and set the agenda for the chamber for the next two years. Some are seasoned US senators with presidential ambitions. Some will be brand new in Capitol Hill.

But what these people all have in common is that they made the political calculation that it would benefit their careers the lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump because of widespread voter fraud.

They have done it in different ways. Some bluntly claim that the election was stolen. Some joined lawsuits to try to throw away the results of the 2020 election. Some have tried to get it both ways, saying, of course, Biden is the president while refusing to address the validity of the election, a common dog whistle among Republicans who are afraid to upset Trump supporters by admitting that Biden fairly beat him in 2020.

On a precautionary note, some Republicans on this list are likely to deny they belong here (like Senator Rick Scott, for example) and insist, perhaps with annoyance, that they’ve long said Biden is the president. Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) has clashed with fellow Republicans who have falsely said Democrats stole the 2020 presidential election, and he recently called out election deniers for admitting privately that they know what they say publicly. lie. But he is also on this list.

A new member of Congress, Republican Rich McCormick of Georgia, complained earlier this year that “no one was hurt more by voter fraud than myself” when he lost his bid to Congress in 2020. fraud in his election. He just lost ― by over 10,000 votes.
