Posted by Staff
The Hill reports:

Congress on Friday officially confirmed President Obama's reelection victory in November by formally counting the Electoral College ballots.

That count certified Obama's 332-206 win over GOP candidate Mitt Romney.

Vice President Biden presided over the joint session of the House and Senate in the House chamber, which started shortly after 1 p.m. Biden handed certificates on the electoral votes of each state to members of the House and Senate, who read their results aloud to the chamber. Facebook Fark Furl
