House of Representatives Rejects Objection to Pennsylvania Electoral Votes 138 – 282


The House of Representatives rejected an objection to the Pennsylvania electoral votes early Thursday morning.

The vote failed 138 – 282 after two hours of floor debate in the House of Representatives over an objection to the certification of the electoral votes by Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO). Sixty-four Republicans joined Democrats to oppose the objection.

At one point in the debate, members of Congress almost came to blows after Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) disputed a comment from Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA) Harris tried to raise a point of order to strike the comment from the record but it was dismissed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

A member says it was mostly Al Lawson (D-Fla.) v. Harris, not Allred, though Allred was in the scrum.

Harris was mostly reacting to a line by Conor Lamb (D-Pa.), fwiw.
