Congress

NPR's Julie Rovner reports on what role Congress might take in deciding the presidential election, depending on what happens in the Electoral College vote next month. The first issue is the usually-routine approval of the electors by the House and Senate in a joint meeting in January. If they vote to invalidate the electors, the election of the president goes to the House and the vice president, to the Senate.
