Last night, after Doug Jones was declared the winner of the special election in Alabama, Sen. Elizabeth Warren demanded that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell seat Jones in the Senate “without delay.” Senator Kamala Harris has followed suit with the same request:
Doug Jones should be seated without delay. The people of Alabama have a right to be represented by the person they elected in this tax debate.

Nice try, but no. And it doesn’t have anything to do with Mitch McConnell.
Rules. How do they work? https://t.co/o7Uqez3FaV

He can't be seated until the election is certified by the AL Secretary of State. By statute, that can't happen until at least Dec 26th. https://t.co/eluy8ohX7J

That's not how that works, Kamala, you're a senator. You know this. Good Lord. https://t.co/7NQ9WTQl9U

She might know, but for Harris & Warren pushing the narrative takes precedence over reality.
