Joe Biden Confirmed As Election Victor Early Thursday Morning

Congress confirmed Joe Biden’s presidential victory in the early hours of Thursday.  Members had to come back to finish the work after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, forcing lawmakers and staff to seek shelter for their safety.


Two Republicans of the Minnesota Congressional Delegation, Representatives Michelle Fischback and Jim Hagedorn, joined the six members of the Senate and the 121 members of the House who objected to the certification of the Electoral College Votes in Arizona and Pennsylvania.


Hagedorn cited concerns about the “constitutionality of individual actors in various states making wholesale changes to election laws without the consent of respective state legislatures, as is required under the United States Constitiution.”
