Texas Republicans want audit of 2020 election in biggest counties

Texas Republicans have signed onto a bill calling for an audit of the 2020 general election in some of the state’s largest counties, including Tarrant, most of which were won by Joe Biden in the presidential race. The proposal authored by Rep. Steve Toth, a Republican from The Woodlands, did not specify which results would be checked. The audit would apply to counties with populations over 415,000. The bill calls on the governor, lieutenant governor and House speaker to appoint a third party to perform a forensic audit starting Nov. 1 and to be completed by Feb. 1, 2022.
