Citing irregularities in the Ohio election process, Senator Boxer has officially agreed to sign off on challenging the election result.

"I have concluded that objecting to the electoral votes from Ohio is the only immediate way to bring these issues to light by allowing you to have a two-hour debate to let the American people know the facts surrounding Ohio's election," Boxer wrote in a letter to Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Ohio, a leader of the Democratic effort.

This will be the first time since 1877 that such a challenge has occured.
