BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Rep. Tom Reed says he will not oppose any state’s electors when electoral votes are counted on Wednesday.
The Republican, who represents New York’s 23rd Congressional District, released a statement on Tuesday morning.
“Listening to those I represent has always been my top priority. In a tele-townhall just last night, I heard the passion on both sides.
We can rebuild trust in our elections by transparently addressing the last-minute, confusing way some states conducted voting in 2020. The Constitution, however, makes clear Congress cannot overrule states and their designated electors. I must be true to the oath I took to uphold the Constitution and will not object to any state’s electors tomorrow.”Rep. Tom Reed
