U.S. Rep.-elect Barry Moore: ‘I hope Coach Tuberville will join us’ in fight contesting Electoral College

Add U.S. Rep.-elect Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) to the list of federal GOP officials pledging to join U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) in his bid to contest the certification of the 2020 Electoral College tally.

During an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “America Right Now,” Moore weighed in the presidential election results and explained there were enough irregularities that led him to the decision to participate in Brooks’ effort.

Moore also called on U.S. Sen.-elect Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) to participate, which would give Brooks’ challenge the one requisite U.S. Senator required.


“Early on, I met with Congressman Mo Brooks in the House and it was something he decided to take this fight on and protest these electors,” Moore said. “I hope Coach Tuberville will join us in that fight. I feel like he will. We have other House members that are coming on board. And if you just look at the elections around the country — I mean, we went to bed at midnight on November 3 with Trump projected to get 200 electoral votes. They shut down the vote in different cities — Philadelphia, Detroit, Atlanta. And then, all of a sudden, you saw this surge of 131,000 votes at 6 a.m. and 140,000 votes at 1 a.m. And we woke that morning and things had changed.”

“There’s enough evidence if you look at the counties President Trump won, he won 18 of the 19 bellwether counties in this nation that indicate the next president,” he continued. “Biden lost Ohio and Florida. Not since 1960 has a Democratic president lost those two seats and won the presidency. And if you look down the ballot, we’ve got 24 they call toss-up seats — 24 seats and Republicans won every single one. People are going to a voting booth and filling out a ballot for Senate and House and they don’t mark the president of their party?”
