KC Star editorial says GOP Sen. Hawley shares "blame for the blood that's been shed"
Lawmakers have resumed debate on an objection to Arizona's Electoral College vote count, picking back up where they were when both chambers were forced to recess.
Republicans were debating the objection before rioters stormed the US Capitol and prompted the proceedings to halt.
A group of House and Senate Republicans had planned to object to at least an additional two states' election results on Wednesday, but it's not clear if they will follow through forcing those votes in the wake of the riots at the Capitol.
While they were waiting for the Senate chamber to be readied for debate to resume, senators tried to cajole the Republicans who had planned to object to Georgia and Pennsylvania to back down after they finish debate over Arizona's election results, two Senate sources familiar with the conversations told CNN.
"We're trying to expedite matters," said Sen. Roger Wicker, a Mississippi Republican, predicting the counting would be finished Wednesday evening.
