Congress opening new session as virus, Biden’s win dominate
Fraud did not spoil the 2020 presidential election, a fact confirmed by election officials across the country. Arizona’s and Georgia’s Republican governors, whose states were crucial to Biden’s victory, have also stated that their election results were accurate. Vice President Mike Pence, as president of the Senate, presides over the session and declares the winner. House Republicans boosted their ranks in the November election, electing a handful of women and minorities, more than ever. Lawmakers are arriving in Washington from all parts of the country potentially exposed to the virus during their travel.
