“The events that transpired have forced me to reconsider and I cannot now in good conscience object to certification of these electors. The violence, the lawlessness and siege of the halls of Congress are abhorrent and stand as a direct attack on what my objection was intended to protect, the sanctity of the American democratic process,” Loeffler said from the Senate floor.
Sen. Kelly Loeffler changed her mind about objecting to Georgia election results in the aftermath of today’s riots.
“I cannot now object to the certification of these electors,” Loeffler said.
