Congress certifies Joe Biden’s Electoral College win
Congress early Thursday morning certified President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory after two Republican-led challenges to swing state electors were shot down.
The certification of Biden’s 306 electoral college votes was delayed for hours after lawmakers were forced into lockdown when an angry pro-Trump mob wreaked havoc on the Capitol building Wednesday.
Before confirming Biden’s win, objections to his victories in Arizona and Pennsylvania were brought up — and subsequently squashed — during the joint-session of Congress.
Other planned objections were dropped by several Republican Senators after Wednesday’s unrest.
