WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Nebraska lawmakers are sharing how they plan to vote to certify the Electoral College results.

Republican U.S. Senator Deb Fischer of Nebraska says she plans to vote in favor of certifying the Electoral College results to elect Joe Biden as president.

Fischer says even though she voted for President Trump, his legal team failed to make the case in court that there was widespread voter fraud.

“Like many Nebraskans, I voted for Donald Trump – twice. I campaigned for him and worked closely with him on many significant accomplishments that have made our country more secure and more prosperous. I also share the concern of many Nebraskans about potential voting irregularities. Should there be investigations? Yes. Should states do more to secure their election procedures? Yes. We must have greater confidence that our elections are secure."

In the news release, Fischer says she wore an oath to defend the Constitution and she will vote to affirm the decision of the electoral college.

Nebraska Republican Representatives Don Bacon and Jeff Fortenberry say they will also vote to certify Joe Biden as president.

Nebraska Congressman Adrian Smith says he will object.
