Due to violence in the nation’s capital Wednesday, Congress was delayed into the early hours of Thursday morning when it ultimately affirmed President-elect Joe Biden’s victory 306-232. 

In case you missed the roll call vote on objections to Pennsylvania’s electoral vote count, here’s how members of the Keystone state’s delegation cast their vote. 

 In the Senate, Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey, a Democrat, and Pat Toomey, a Republican, seemed to find common ground. Both senators voted no on the objection. 

Seven senators voted to object to Pennsylvania results: 

  • U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tx.
  • U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo.
  • U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss.
  • U.S. Sen. Cynthia Lummis, R- Wyo.
  • U.S. Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan. 
  • U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla. 
  • U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala.
