One of Joe Biden’s top allies is calling on two GOP senators to step down.

During a press conference in Delaware, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), told reporters that Sens. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) “should resign,” according to WBOC, one day after a group of Trump supporters staged a deadly insurrection in the U.S. Capitol.

His calls for Hawley and Cruz’s resignations follow both senators leading separate challenges to Wednesday’s electoral college certification process, echoing President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud. In his futile effort to overturn the November election results, Trump urged his supporters to descend upon the Capitol and has refused to concede.

Shortly after Cruz challenged Arizona’s results on Wednesday afternoon, the rioters overtook the Capitol building, forcing Congress to halt the certification process of the 2020 election. The riots left several people dead, including a woman who was shot and killed by U.S. Capitol Police. Later in the evening, after the Senate reconvened, Hawley objected to Pennsylvania’s results.
