Following the Wednesday occupation in the U.S. Capitol, Congress voted on an objection to the Pennsylvania presidential election results early Thursday morning -- about 3 a.m. Eastern -- after a similar objection earlier over the Arizona results.
Both objections to the Arizona and Pennsylvania election results failed. Congress confirmed the presidential election results just before 4 a.m. Eastern.
Most Republicans on the House Agriculture Committee, including the incoming committee ranking member, were among the 138 House Republicans who voted for the Pennsylvania objection. The high number of GOP lawmakers, representing largely rural areas, reflects part of the rural-urban divide over the election.
Current House Agriculture Committee members who voted to object:
Rick Crawford, Arkansas
Doug LaMalfa, California
Neal Dunn, Florida
Rick Allen, Georgia
Mike Bost, Illinois
Jim Baird, Indiana
Michelle Fischbach, Minnesota -- newly sworn-in, replacing Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn. (Fischbach had said she would join the House Agriculture Committee)
Jim Hagedorn, Minnesota
Trent Kelly, Mississippi
Vicky Hartzler, Missouri
Chris Jacobs, New York
David Rouzer, North Carolina
Glenn Thompson, Pennsylvania (incoming ranking member)
Scott DesJarlais, Tennessee
Former Ag Committee members
Mike Rogers, Alabama
Bob Gibbs, Ohio
Adrian Smith, Nebraska
Jackie Walorski, Indiana
Blaine Luetkemeyer, Missouri
Frank Lucas, Oklahoma
Senators on the Agriculture Committee who objected:

Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, Mississippi
