Rep.-elect Owens is currently the only member of the Utah delegation in the House who will join other Republicans mounting a long-shot attempt to keep Trump in the White House.

Owens told the Salt Lake Tribune that just like he did while playing in the NFL, he will leave "everything on the field."

When asked if he believes Trump actually won the election in which no voter fraud has been found, Owens answered “Absolutely. Yes, I do. There’s no question in my mind that I think he won.”

Although courts have thrown out voter fraud cases across the country since Biden's overwhelming Election Day victory, Owens maintains widespread fraud was prevalent.
