GOP congressman says he regrets voting to overturn the 2020 election

Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC) voted against certifying the vote hours after the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump seeking to overturn the 2020 election.

Rep. Tom Rice now says he regrets voting to overturn the 2020 election and blames Trump for the attack.

“In retrospect, I should have voted to certify,” Rice said. “Because President Trump was responsible for the attack on the Capitol.” Politico reported.

“In the wee hours of that disgraceful night, while waiting for the Capitol of our great country to be secured, I knew I should vote to certify. But because I had made a public announcement of my intent to object, I did not want to go back on my word. So yeah, I regret my vote to object,” Rice explained.
