Senator Barbara Boxer will challenge the Ohio vote

California Senator Barbara Boxer is planning to stand up and join House Democrats in their requests for an investigation into the Ohio presidential vote. Certification of the vote takes place today in the Senate, and due to Senator Boxer's objection, a two-hour debate will take place regarding Ohio election irregularities.

It's highly unlikely that the debate will change the outcome of the election; however, it will bring some of the voting issues to broader national attention.

In a letter to Representative Stephanie Tubbs Jones (D-Ohio), Boxer wrote: “I have concluded that objecting to the electoral votes from Ohio is the only immediate way to bring these issues to light by allowing you to have a two-hour debate to let the American people know the facts surrounding Ohio’s election.”
