Republican lawmakers objected to Georgia's electoral results, which certified President-elect Joe Biden's win, tonight on Capitol Hill.
GOP Rep. Jody Hice, of Georgia, objected to the election results in the state claiming they were "faulty and fraudulent."
When asked by Vice President Mike Pence whether these objections were presented in writing and signed by one senator, Hice said: "Mr. President, prior to the actions and events of today, we did, but following the events of today, it appears that some senators have withdrawn their objection."
Hice's response drew vigorous applause from other lawmakers.
"In that case, the objection cannot be entertained," Pence said in response.
Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler had indicated earlier today that she would object, but withdrew it after protestors stormed the Capitol Wednesday saying, "I cannot now object to the certification of these electors."
Georgia’s votes are now certified for President-elect Joe Biden.
Remember: Each objection must be put in writing and signed by both a congressman and senator in order for the joint session to be paused and the House and Senate adjourn to separately consider it.
