Walmart apologizes to Hawley after calling him a sore loser


#Walmart’s #Twitter account later apologized to the senator and said its earlier tweet “was mistakenly posted by a member of our social media team.”

“We deleted the post and have no intention of commenting on the subject of certifying the electoral college,” it said. “We apologize to #Senator #Hawley for this error and any confusion about our position.”

#Walmart declined to comment on #Hawley’s criticisms of the company’s labor practices.

#Hawley’s plan to challenge #Biden’s victory in the #Electoral #College is only the latest #Republican effort to delegitimize the 2020 election, which election officials, #Democrats and many #Senate #Republicans have acknowledged as a #Biden victory. #But a number of #President #Donald #Trump’s supporters have continued to challenge the results in court and urged #Republicans in #Congress not to certify the election results. #Still, #Hawley’s plans are almost certain to have no impact on who will take the #White #House next month.

#Several #House #Republicans had already expressed interest in challenging the results. #With #Hawley’s approval from the #Senate, the effort now has enough support to force a debate on the issue in both chambers of #Congress.

#Hawley quickly got heat from his #Democratic peers for further eroding trust in the presidential election. #And #Senate #Majority #Leader #Mitch #McConnell had previously urged his caucus to leave the matter to rest, in spite of #Trump’s pleas to push for a challenge in #Congress.
