Republicans who are on a joint congressional committee to prepare for inaugurations said no to going along with a resolution declaring Biden as the president-elect and Sen. Kamala Harris as the vice president-elect, which blocked it.

“The Inaugural Committee fails to pass simple resolution essentially acknowledging Biden as president-elect after all Republicans opposed. Hoyer offered the resolution, which failed 3-3. Other committee members are Pelosi, McConnell, McCarthy, Blunt, and Klobuchar,” Politico correspondent Heather Caygle said on Twitter.

“The resolution was very basic, per folks with knowledge. It would’ve notified [the] American people that Congress is preparing for [the] inauguration of Biden and Harris ‘in coordination with health experts’ as ‘we observe this transition of power,’” she said.
