WASHINGTON D.C. - Congress formally validated Joe Biden's presidential election victory early Thursday morning. 

The House and Senate certified the Democrat’s electoral college win around 3:41 a.m. Thursday. Lawmakers resumed their session hours after pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol building. 

Thirteen Republican senators and dozens of GOP representatives had planned to force debate and votes on perhaps six different states’ votes. The assault on the Capitol made some Republicans squeamish about trying to overturn Biden’s win, and challenges were lodged only against Arizona and Pennsylvania. Both efforts lost overwhelmingly.

Biden defeated Trump by 306-232 electoral votes and will be inaugurated on January 20th.
