(RightIsRight.co) – The Texas lawsuit filed this week against four states and their questionable election practices is gaining momentum. Senators Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) showed their support of the filing as they seek to overturn the Georgia presidential election results while awaiting their own special election runoff in January. The US Supreme Court asked the four states in question to file their responses by Thursday at 3 pm.
Together, Loeffler and Perdue released a joint statement in support of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit:
Georgia Sens. @kloeffler and @Perduesenate both back the Texas lawsuit seeking to overturn Georgia’s election results – a lawsuit that Republican Attorney General Chris Carr’s office says is “constitutionally, legally and factually wrong.” #gapol #gasen pic.twitter.com/OgsvjoCawo

Loeffler’s opponent for the January 5 special election, Reverend Raphael Warnock, quickly reacted to Loeffler’s statement:
A new low for @KLoeffler. This out-of-state lawsuit is trying to undo the will of Georgia voters. Ballots were counted three times. I am proud to stand with the overwhelming majority of Georgians of both parties who believe in defending democracy and fair elections. https://t.co/44LWzLfztz

This suit is quickly dividing the Republican party in Georgia. Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Governor Brian Kemp, also a Republican, already certified the state’s election results after a third recount. In addition, Georgia’s Republican Attorney General Chris Carr said the lawsuit was “constitutionally, legally and factually wrong.”
Even Republicans struggle to agree on what decisions from the past few months can be considered constitutional. So, it’s now up to the US Supreme Court to decide whether or not to hear the case and if so, determine whether the states violated the Constitution.
