More Republicans embraced the scheme by far-right supporters of Donald Trump to ignore the results of the 2020 election.

Trump lost the Electoral College and popular vote to President-elect Joe Biden, but some Republicans have joined the president in refusing to accept the fact that voter reject the GOP presidential ticket.

On Saturday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and ten additional GOP senators received harsh criticism after announcing they would go along with the effort to reject the will of the voters.

Marc Short, the chief of staff for Mike Pence released a statement saying the vice president "welcomes the efforts" of the Republicans refusing to accept that Trump lost.

George Conway, the prominent conservative attorney and Washington Post columnist who is married to Kellyanne Conway, summed up the statement from the vice president's office -- needing only eleven words.
