Elaine Luria on Principles & Values



Question White House credentials for anti-Semitic website

The Trump administration approved press credentials for a website TruNews. Ted Deutch and Luria sent a letter to the White House which said, "An extremist website that frequently attacks Jews and other minorities has no place in the White House. Please let us know how this anti-Semitic purveyor of hate received access to the White House and what steps are being taken to ensure no similar group is ever recognized at the White House again." Deutch and Luria said they did not receive a reply.

Certify 2020 Presidential election as fully & fairly counted.

Luria voted NAY blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
