Here are the Republicans who voted to contest the Electoral College votes showing Biden beat Trump

For a handful of Republican lawmakers, the spectacle of a pro-Trump mob, spurred on by the president’s false claims of election fraud, storming the U.S. Capitol was enough to make them reconsider their role in seeking to block the certification of Electoral College votes that confirmed Joe Biden had beaten Donald Trump on Nov. 3.

Sens. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia, James Lankford of Oklahoma and Steve Daines of Montana and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington broke ranks with Trump’s plan to stop Biden from becoming the 46th president, announcing that they would not stand in the way of what is traditionally a pro forma ceremony.

But for far more Republicans in Congress, a mob inspired by the false hopes that they and the president have stoked for weeks was not reason enough to change their mind. While the attempted insurrection was worthy of condemnation, it was not, in and of itself, enough to alter their conviction not to certify the electoral votes representing the will of millions of Americans.

Here is a complete list of all the Republicans who cast a vote on Wednesday and Thursday to prevent the certification of the Electoral College in at least one state.
