A growing number of Republican lawmakers have joined US President Donald Trump's extraordinary effort to overturn the Presidential election, pledging to reject the results when Congress meets next week to count the electoral college votes and certify President-Elect Joe Biden's win. On Saturday, Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas announced a coalition of 11 senators who will vote against certain state electors unless Congress appoints an electoral commission to immediately conduct an audit of the election results.
