Republican Senator-elect Tommy Tuberville of Alabama may join efforts to block the Electoral College vote from being certified by Congress on Jan. 6.

Tuberville may have indicated in a video taken Wednesday night that he thinks the Senate should support a challenge to the results of the Electoral College, suggesting he is likely to join GOP Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama to block the submission of votes from certain swing states with flawed election systems.

Brooks only needs one senator to join him in challenging the certification for a debate and vote to be triggered in the House and Senate, according to The Hill.

There have been rumors that Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky may join in these efforts.

President Donald Trump tweeted in response to the reports, “Tommy will be more popular than ever before – a hero!”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday urged GOP senators not to object to the vote, telling them during a caucus call that an objection “isn’t in the best interest of everybody,” according to The Hill.

In a Thursday interview with Alabama-based Yellowhammer News, “Tuberville emphasized that he has not made up his mind on whether he will support the congressional challenge; he outlined that he will be doing his ‘due diligence,’ studying the issue and soliciting feedback from his constituents before taking a stance,” the outlet reported.

“I want to do what’s best for President Trump and the people of Alabama and the people of this country,” Tuberville said.

“They asked me, ‘Are you going to support President Trump?’ And, of course, I’m always going to support President Trump. He’s the best president of my lifetime and has done more for the people of this country and the state of Alabama than anybody. But we want to make sure we do the right thing.”
