Rep. Jody Hice R-GA objects to the elections in his own home state of Georgia, by which he was elected to Congress in November. There is applause as Hice admits he has no Senator signed on to the objection.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene R-GA objects to the elections in Michigan - but she has no Senator signed on to the objection. There is again applause, as Michigan's electoral votes are approved.
Rep. Mo Brooks R-AL objects to Nevada - but he also has no Senator signed on to the objection. There is even louder applause, as Nevada's electoral votes are approved.
We now have an objection to Pennsylvania which does have a Senator signed on. So the House and Senate will withdraw for up to 2 hours of debate. Sen. Josh Hawley R-MO and Rep. Scott Perry R-PA were the objecting lawmakers.
Debate is now underway on the House floor. Rep. Scott Perry R-PA is arguing that the elections in his home state - evidently including his own re-election - were illegitimate.
The Senate is done with these challenges. All debate time is being yielded back, and the Senate is now voting on the challenge to the Pennsylvania electoral votes.
The Senate rejects the Pennsylvania challenge 92-7.
In the House debate, GOP lawmakers are again putting forth arguments which are simply not true, and have been echoed by President Trump

The Pennsylvania 7 were: Cruz TX, Hawley MO, Hyde-Smith MS, Lummis WY, Marshall KS, Scott FL, Tuberville AL

Senate Democratic Leader calls for the immediate removal of President Trump
Schumer more: "If the Vice President and the Cabinet refuse to stand up, Congress must reconvene to impeach President Trump."

The House and Senate are scheduled at this point to be out of DC from now until January 19. Pelosi holds a 1 pm newser. We'll see if anything changes.
House Democrats already crafting impeachment articles.

Back in the Senate, Sen. Lindsey Graham R-SC says "Enough is enough" about GOP efforts to overturn the election.

"Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lawfully elected, and will become the President and Vice President of the United States on January 20th."
The Senate is now voting on the objection to the Arizona electors.
The last time the Senate voted on such an electoral vote objection, the Senate rejected the challenge in 2005 on a vote of 74-1.

Only Sen. Barbara Boxer D-CA supported the effort.

VP Pence gavels in the Senate. Says today was a 'dark day' at the US Capitol. "The people's work continues."

Pence strongly condemns the violence, and the death of one woman who involved in an attack on the House Chamber.
Pence in a very firm voice: "To those who wreaked havoc in our Capitol today - you did not win."
Standing ovation from Senators as Pence finishes. "Let's get back to work."

Democrats may be heading to a giant double Senate victory in Georgia, which would give them control of the US Senate later this month. That's the big news this morning as the Congress gets ready to ratify Joe Biden's 2020 election victory.…
Lots of finger pointing (and glum looks) on Fox News this morning about the Georgia Senate races. But not much of it aimed at President Trump.
After her loss last night to Raphael Warnock - does Sen. Kelly Loeffler R-GA still fly back to DC today to object to the counting of Georgia's electoral votes?…

Perdue lead down to 456 votes. Ossoff would seem to have a possible edge with extra votes still to be counted in metro Atlanta. But we'll see.
Unclear how many more votes will be tallied tonight in Georgia.

Warnock leads Loeffler by 35,000.

Perdue currently leads Ossoff by 1,869 votes.
Warnock lead now edges up to 36,000.

Perdue lead shrinks to under 1k.
