The Tom Cotton gambit to win the Republican future

It’s shocking yet unsurprising that Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz have chosen to lead a faction of their Republican colleagues in a constitutionally dubious effort to scuttle Congress’ certification of Joe Biden’s win in the presidential election.

It’s shocking because it shows that high-ranking elected officials in the GOP support President Trump’s quest to delegitimize the outcome of the election and somehow get himself crowned the winner through anti-democratic means. But it’s unsurprising because polls show that large numbers of Republican voters support the president’s unconstitutional power grab, and Hawley and Cruz each desperately wants to emerge as the party’s populist successor to Trump.
