January 8, 2021Gene Grant and The Line opinion panelists talk about newly elected Republican Congresswoman Yvette Herrell’s objection to certifying electoral college votes for President-elect Joe Biden. After the violence that erupted at the U.S. Capitol, a group of lawmakers changed their minds about objecting to electoral votes from six swing states. Representative Herrell was not one of them.
