While some of President Trump’s allies who planned to contest Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory Wednesday decided to reverse course after a violent, pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol and interrupted the session, dozens of Republican lawmakers still went through with the plan.

As the ceremonial ritual of counting electoral votes was underway Wednesday afternoon, violent Trump supporters who had convened at a rally with the president earlier in the day in which he continued to falsely assert he won the election, heeded his call to “fight like hell” and broke barriers to break into the building, forcing Vice President Mike Pence to be ushered to safety and lawmakers, journalists, and other officials to hide in secure locations for hours.

After the chaos had cleared, lawmakers resumed the procedure and confirmed Biden’s victory, though some staunch Trump defenders had notably changed their rhetoric or positioning after the day’s events.

Though members of the House and Senate soundly rejected to objections to the electoral votes in Arizona and Pennsylvania, several Republican members didn’t.

The Senate rejected the Arizona objection with 6 senators voting yes and 93 voting no, and the Pennsylvania objection, with 7 voting yes and 92 voting no.

The House also did not sustain the objections, rejecting the Arizona challenge with 121 members voting yes and 303 voting no while 138 members voted yes and 282 members voted no for the Pennsylvania challenge.
