Senator Patty Murray calls on Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley to resign

The third highest Democrat in the Senate. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) has called on Sens. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley to resign.

Murray said in a statement.

This is not how we keep our people and our land free. As a senator, I respect any member who disagrees with my ideas. I reserve the right to use my voice to fight for what I believe in.

Ultimately, it is our job to make this country a democracy where votes win, not brute force. Every senator who stands up and supports the power of power over the power of democracy has broken his oath of office. Senators Hawley and Cruz should resign.

Cruz and Hawley’s cynical ploy of standing for the 2024 Republican president nomination by questioning the election has backfired spectacularly. Ted Cruz barely beat Beto O’Rourke in his last election, and Josh Hawley is a first-term senator. Both men have ambitions that are much greater than their talent.

Hawley and Cruz thought that the wrong election challenge would provide them with a platform to launch their 2024 campaigns. Instead, they resulted in celebrity faces in an attempted coup to overthrow US democracy, which made it politically radioactive.

The two senators won’t resign, but their White House dreams are likely dead and long gone.
