Capitol bldg

WISCONSIN — After making it known that he would be objecting to the Electoral College results at Wednesday's joint session of Congress, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson (R) flipped his vote.

"Unfortunately, lawless protesters entered the Capitol and by consensus we decided to expedite the proceedings," Johnson said in a statement released on Thursday. "I condemn the lawlessness and mourn the loss of life that occurred in the Capitol. I believe the sentiments expressed below are valid concerns of the millions of Americans who also condemn today’s illegal activities in the Capitol."

The results of Arizona and Pennsylvania were the only two states that were objected. Here is a breakdown of how Wisconsin's representatives voted in each case:

Senate
