Sen.-elect Tommy Tuberville suggests he might challenge Electoral College count; other GOP senators mum

The discord comes weeks before a joint session of Congress convenes Jan. 6 to count votes cast by the Electoral College, which elected Biden over President Donald Trump by a 306-232 vote margin Monday. Some House Republicans have said they intend to object to Biden's slate of electors in some states.
