Bookmark the full list of Republican members of Congress who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 election, so you can vote them ALL out when their terms are up.
Before the sun rose on January 7, 2021, Congress voted to certify the results of the 2020 election, which included the victory of Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Congress completed this task after Trump supporters swarmed and vandalized the Capitol building, forcing the legislators to escape to a secure location and wait out the chaos.
Four Trump supporters died during the insurrection. One was shot and ultimately killed by forces defending the building. The others succumbed to assorted medical emergencies.
Several Republicans who had voiced support for challenging the certifications of Electoral College votes from various states were chastened by the violence and withdrew their objections. (The original planned called for self-selected representatives to challenge the results for six states; before the insurrection, they were moving toward reducing it to two, Arizona and Pennsylvania.)
Others plowed ahead, determined to wound the oldest continuously functioning democracy in the world on behalf of a venal, foul, unfit wretch of a man who is unworthy of their support and will never show them an ounce of loyalty in return.
Those others who plowed ahead–all Republicans–should be hounded from Washington, D.C. and should never hold elected office ever again.
You know that ought to happen. We know that ought to happen. Frankly, it already should have happened.
It falls to us, the citizens, to make sure this happens.
It won’t be easy and it won’t be quick, but we have to flush every one of these evil-minded coup-fuelers from office and boot them from civic life. Every. One.
Below you will find a list of every sitting Member of Congress (MoCs) who supported this attack on our democracy.
Bookmark this page. Look it over. Learn their names. Think about what you can do to ensure their removal from Congress.
As we prepare this post in January 2021, it’s far too early to tell you who their Democratic challengers are, but no worries, we will update this story when the time comes.
The Senators who voted to overturn the 2020 election results–those who challenged the certified outcomes in Arizona or Pennsylvania or both–are:
Ted Cruz of Texas, who is up for re-election in 2024
Josh Hawley of Missouri, who is up for re-election in 2024
Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi, who is up for re-election in 2026
John Kennedy of Louisiana, who is up for re-election in 2022
Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, who is up for re-election in 2026
Roger Marshall of Kansas, who is up for re-election in 2026
Rick Scott of Florida, who is up for re-election in 2024
Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, who is up for re-election in 2026
…you’ll notice that only one of these Senators, John Kennedy of Louisiana, is due to run in 2022.
They’re hoping you’ll forget the events of January 6 and 7, 2021, and they’re also hoping you’ll forget what they did on those days.
Don’t forget. Bookmarking this page will help you remember.
As noted above, it’s too early for any of them to draw Democratic challengers. In the meantime, you can adapt the Home State, Swing State, Red State strategy for targeting the Seditious Eight.
In particular, look for organizations in Texas, Florida, Wyoming, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, and Kansas that approach newly eligible and traditionally neglected groups of voters and register them to vote.
Support these organizations, and support those that seek to defend and expand voting rights in those states.
(And, yes, watch for stories to appear on One Thing You Can Do about organizations in those states that do that sort of work, and please send us tips on relevant state organizations we should cover.)
Also consider supporting the Democratic Party organizations in these states, and help them prepare for upcoming elections.
Next up is the list of 140 Republican members of the House of Representatives who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Know that ALL 435 members of the House of Representatives face re-election in 2022, not just these folks.
When the people noted below start drawing Democratic challengers, we will update this page with those challengers’ websites and donation links.
As with the Republican Senators, it’s too early for these MoCs to have drawn Democratic challengers. In the meantime, you can focus on helping organizations in the House Reps’ home states that register people to vote and defend voting rights. You can also help those states’ Democratic Party organizations.

He is the only sitting Congressperson to vote to overturn the 2020 election results and also vote to impeach Trump on January 13, 2021.
