Objections To Four Swing States’ Electors Fall Flat After Senators Refuse To Participate; Hawley Forces Debate On Pennsylvania

TOPLINE Objections to President-elect Joe Biden’s wins in Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Wisconsin failed without a vote in Congress because no Senate Republicans agreed to participate, ultimately affirming Biden’s electoral victory hours after Wednesday’s insurrection at the Capitol — but while some senators ultimately backed out of trying to overturn President Donald Trump’s loss, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) followed through on his pledge to contest the results in Pennsylvania.


When Georgia’s electoral votes were read aloud in a joint session of Congress, Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.) stood up and objected, claiming (without evidence) Biden’s win in his state was tainted by “an unprecedented amount of fraud and irregularities.”

Similarly, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) later objected to Michigan’s electoral votes, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) objected to Nevada’s votes and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) objected to Wisconsin, with Greene offering up a slew of debunked voter fraud conspiracy theories to justify her decision.

In all four cases, Vice President Mike Pence swatted down the objections amid applause because no senators agreed to join the effort, which is required under the Electoral Count Act of 1877 to compel Congress to consider an objection.

Hice claimed senators had previously agreed to object to Georgia’s electors but backed out after the storming of the Capitol (Politico reported this was due to Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s last-minute decision not to object).


“Prior to the actions and events of today, we did [have an objector in the Senate], but following the events of today, it appears that some senators have withdrawn their objection,” Hice said Wednesday night.


Objections from Pennsylvania and Arizona were allowed to move to voting because Hawley and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) backed those efforts, with Hawley’s objection to Pennsylvania’s electors coming hours after Congress retook the Capitol. Both objections failed by broad margins in both houses of Congress, leaving all of Biden’s 306 electoral votes intact.


After weeks of pressure from Trump, more than a dozen Republican senators and over 100 representatives had agreed to object to some of Biden’s electoral votes when they were counted by Congress, in a last-ditch bid to reverse Trump’s election loss. But after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday and forced members of Congress to take shelter, several Republican senators publicly announced they were no longer interested in continuing to back Trump’s gambit.
