Democrats Want Sen. Rick Scott To Resign As NRSC Head After Voting To Reject Election Certification

American Bridge, a Democratic activist group, has called for Sen. Rick Scott (R-Florida), the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), to resign from his position after voting against the certification of Pennsylvania’s electors.

He was one of the handful of Republicans who were still willing to challenge the election results after the Capitol was stormed on Jan. 6 by Trump supporters.

“Domestic terrorists stormed the Capitol in an illegal attempt to overturn the Presidential election and assassinate elected officials, resulting in the deaths of at least five people,” said Bradley Beychok, the president of the American Bridge.

“Yet even after that, as numerous Republicans dropped their challenge to the election results, Senator Rick Scott recklessly votes to object to the Pennsylvania results.”

Beychok added that “Rick Scott is a disgrace who is more concerned about winning a presidential primary in 4 years than stopping further acts of violence. Someone who so casually puts innocent lives at risk for his own personal ambitions has no business being in one of the top leadership positions in his party. Rick Scott needs to resign from his position as chair of the NRSC immediately. Until then, every Republican Senator who accepts money or assistance from the NRSC has blood on their hands.”

A spokesperson for Scott said that the senator would not be resigning, stating that “he looks forward to working for the next two years to take back the Senate majority from the radical Democrats who are trying to fundamentally change America.”
