The House will be vacant. Any senators not up for reelection will still be seated. And the POTUS will expire. So it's the senate pro-tem.

I don't believe that is correct.

On the first day of the a new congress, usually Jan 3, the new speaker is elected.
Pelosi was elected Jan 3, 2019.
Senate pro-tem is next in line in terms of presidential succession behind the VP and Speaker of the House, though I don't believe it matters because I still fully expect to have an election result before then.

If my understanding is wrong I am open to learning something that I didn't know.

I don't understand the comment that the House will be vacant.
