At Mr. Trump’s previous rally in Georgia, he falsely insisted that “we win the election” and the state in particular. Mr. Trump has refused to accept a general election, and he has fired Republican election officials in Georgia, who were blue for President-elect Joe Biden, while large numbers of voters were claiming fraud and rigged elections.

Senators were told not to object to the election results when calling a joint session.

Senator John Thuen, a Republican and majority whip from South Dakota, said the attempt to throw out state election votes “just doesn’t go anywhere.”

On December 21, Thuen told reporters that he would go down like a shot dog in the Senate.
