The Congress of the United States has rejected this Wednesday by overwhelming majority a Republican proposal to annul the results of the presidential past in the state of Arizona, in which the president-elect, Joe Biden, prevailed by a narrow margin of just 10,400 votes.

The session in the Senate has been resumed by the Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, after it was suspended due to the irruption of a mob of exalted supporters of the president, Donald Trump, in the Capitol, whose altercations have so far left a dead woman and 52 detainees.

Only six Republican senators have supported this proposal, including Florida Representative Ted Cruz, while 93 others have voted against it, some of them recognized supporters of President Trump, such as South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.

“Don’t count on me, that’s enough,” said Graham, who has asked Vice President Pence to “end all this”, as Trump “will not.”

“It’s over. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been legally elected and will become the President and Vice President of the United States on January 20,” he concluded.

In addition to Cruz, the senators for Missouri, Josh Hawley; for Mississippi, Cindy Hyde-Smith; for Kansas, Roger Marshall; for Louisiana, John Kennedy; and for Alabama, Tommy Tuberville.

After the session in the Senate, the vote has been carried out in the House of Representatives, where the proposal has also been rejected by Democrats and a large part of the Republican Party by 303 to 121 against.

The House of Representatives and the Senate will meet again in a joint session to continue with the Electoral College vote count and thus certify Biden’s triumph in the presidential pasts.
