Congressmen Brian Babin and Randy Weber signed a letter with two other representatives from Texas asking for a hearing on the 2020 election results.
BEAUMONT, Texas – Two representatives from Southeast Texas along with 17 other Republican Congressmen from the House of Representatives signed a letter to challenge the results of the presidential election.
United States Congressman Brian Babin, DDS (TX-36) and Congressman Randy Weber (TX-14), along with two other representatives from Texas, signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in which they were asked for a hearing election results.

“The decision of federal election campaigns for the President, Senate and House of Representatives is a matter for Congress,” Babin said in a statement sent via email.
The letter calls on House and Senate leaders to address their concerns about “election fraud and election theft,” the statement said.
“Confidence in our electoral process must be restored,” Babin said in the statement. “It is my duty to do everything in my power to ensure that every legal vote is counted, every illegal vote is not and that our elections remain transparent – otherwise democracy will not survive.
“If Congress refuses to act before January 6, I will on behalf of the millions of Americans, including myself, who oppose the House Electoral Proposals who do not trust the validity of that election,” he said.

“I had the opportunity to speak to President Trump last night!” Congressman Randy Weber said this in a Facebook post on Sunday. “I let him know we were behind him!”
“Hello, Mr. President,” Weber said on a videotape of his conversation with President Trump. “I want to tell you from Texas that you’ve been to southeast Texas – hurricanes, floods – my state, my county loves you, knows what you stand for to say we stand with you, we fight.”
“It’s easy – oil, guns and God,” President Trump said in the video. “All I do is say these three words, it was pretty easy.”
“We love you, we love what you do, we stand behind you, we do not give up this fight, so please, please, please encourage you,” said Weber. “We love you and look forward to seeing you back for another four years.”
Congressman Lance Gooden (TX-05) and Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) also signed the letter with Babin and Weber.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz and ten other Republican senators opposed the electoral college’s decision, according to the Associated Press.
Senator John Cornyn said, according to a December 3 article in the Dallas Morning News, that Congress had “no reason” to overturn the electoral college decision due to a lack of evidence of electoral fraud.
Babin organized a “voter integrity” rally in Lumberton on November 8, the weekend after the election, in support of President Trump. Hundreds of President Trump’s supporters came to the rally to hear Babin speak.
