Vice President Mike Pence concluded the joint session of Congress certifying the electoral votes for President-elect Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris as the Vice President-elect in the 2020 presidential election.
Pence resumed the joint session of Congress to certify the votes early Thursday morning around 3:30 a.m. after Trump supporters stormed Capitol Hill and delayed the proceedings for about six hours, as Breitbart News reported.
The ceremonial certification was also delayed after a House Republican and a Senate Republican issuing formal objections to the electoral votes cast in Arizona and Wisconsin, prompting further debate and a congressional vote on the objection.
Both objections failed in the House and Senate vote.
The Senate rejected the objection to Pennsylvania’s electoral votes with a vote of 7-92. The objection to Arizona’s electoral votes was rejected by the Senate with a vote of 6-93. The House of Representatives also rejected the Pennsylvania objection
