CHAIRMAN JEFFRIES STATEMENT ON THE ELECTION OF JOE BIDEN AS THE 46TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
NEW YORK – Upon Joe Biden and Kamala Harris receiving the Electoral College votes required to secure the presidency, House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries released the following statement:
“The people have spoken and Joe Biden will be the 46th President of the United States. The sacred process of counting each and every vote continues. As it proceeds, it is clear that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will have a mandate to unify our country and govern For The People.
From day one, the House Democratic Caucus will have a close partnership with the new president to decisively crush the virus, provide direct relief to everyday Americans who are struggling and revive our nation’s economy. The American people have already been waiting for months for President Trump and Senate Majority Leader McConnell to address their suffering and save lives from this deadly pandemic. Now that Americans have also made it clear at the ballot box that they are ready for relief, Senate Republicans must work with us immediately to send bipartisan legislation to the president for his swift signature.
The election results are also special as Senator Kamala Harris will make history as the first woman and person of color to serve as Vice President of the United States. The late, great Shirley Chisholm is smiling down from heaven.”
