Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is finally acknowledging last month's news.
The Electoral College cast its votes Monday and affirmed President-elect Joe Biden's win. And on Tuesday, McConnell took to the Senate floor to congratulate Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris' wins for the first time.
Several other top Senate Republicans acknowledged Biden's win on Monday once he reached 270 electoral votes, including Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.); Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), who chairs the inaugural committee; and Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa). Sen.
