Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy votes to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s Arizona win

News

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy joined with five other Senators in voting to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Arizona.

The objection to the results in Arizona was rejected 93-6 on Wednesday night. Texas Senator Ted Cruz also voted to overturn Biden’s victory.

The Republicans raised the objection based on false claims pushed by President Donald Trump and others of issues with the vote in Arizona, which were repeatedly dismissed in Arizona’s courts and by the state’s election officials.

Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy voted against objecting to Biden’s Arizona victory.

KTAL reached out to Kennedy’s office for comment regarding his vote, but we’ve not received a response. Earlier Wednesday Kennedy did condemn the rioters that stormed the U.S. Capitol building.
