Both Florida Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott voted against Senator Ted Cruz’s objection to President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral votes in Arizona.

The final vote count was 93-6 with Sens. Cruz, Hawley, Hyde-Smith, Kennedy, Marshall, and Tuberville.

The vote against the objection could have 2020 mid-term election and 2024 presidential election ramifications. It is expected that those who oppose President Trump will most-likely face primary challenges.

The debate is all but over, and Biden will be certified President of the United States.

The Republican efforts to contest up to 6 states were thwarted when protestors stormed the Capitol.
