WHO Radio’s Simon Conway posted responses from Iowa’s congressional delegation in regards to how they will approach the Jan. 6 vote to certify the Electoral College results.

According to Simon, Sen. Charles Grassley said he will decide how to cast his vote after he considers all the information before him.

However, according to KCCI, Grassley will not object to the Electoral College votes.

Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks responded via her deputy chief of staff. That statement said that Miller-Meeks believes any justification to decertify electoral votes must reach the highest standards.

“Her guiding principles are to protect the integrity of the Electoral College, support states’ rights (federalism) and support the original intent of the Constitution.

“She understands the precedent decertification would set for future elections. People are rightfully upset over how elections were conducted in the states questioned, but those concerns should be addressed by an impartial body and not by intensely partisan politicians.”

Harris said a full statement will be available on Tuesday.

Congressman Randy Feenstra’s response was that he wants to review all the facts, relevant constitutional provisions and where things stand before making a decision.

“Given he was just sworn-in yesterday, he’d like to hear more from his constituents and have these conversations with his new colleagues.”

Feenstra’s office can be contacted at 202-225-4426.

Congresswoman Ashley Hinson posted her response on Facebook.

Hinson said the job of Congress is to formally count the votes cast by their electors.

She said she expects debate on results from multiple states.

“Many Americans across the country felt their votes weren’t counted in this election while illegal ones were,” Hinson said. “Thankfully, this did not happen in Iowa, where our electoral process was safe and secure.”

Hinson added that she looks forward to engaging in this debate and beginning the critical process of restoring faith in our elections.

She previously said in a press call last week that courts are where election disputes should be resolved.
