No, Biden Hasn't Won Yet: One More Nightmare Scenario

One part of this scenario, which the author, Prof. Jeremy D. Mayer, cogently relates in Politico, is a little alarmist. Mayer is suggesting that Republicans could somehow get the Senate to sit there for another 12 days-- or more-- of Republican challenges after the January 6 confirmation of the Electoral College results, without the Democrats raising Cain, and the US People too.
