Senator Smith also joins a number of other Democrats, including Senator Sherrod Brown (Ohio); Patty Murray (Washinhton State); and Chris Coons (State of Delaware).
Senator Brown tweeted: “Both @HawleyMO and @SenTedCruz have betrayed their oath of office and fueled a violent uprising against our democracy. I urge them to resign immediately. If they do not resign, the Senate must expel them.
