Top Republicans Block Motion Recognizing Biden’s Win

Newsweek reports:

Republicans responsible for organizing the 2021 inauguration ceremony have refused to officially recognize they are planning the event for President-elect Joe Biden.

The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, which is made up of lawmakers from both the House of Representatives and the Senate, rejected a motion on Tuesday that essentially recognized Biden as the winner of the 2020 election.

The motion was put forward by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) during a meeting about the ceremony. The resolution failed to pass in a 3-to-3 vote, with all three Republicans on the committee voting against it.
