REP LIEU STATEMENT ON ELECTION OF JOSEPH R. BIDEN AS 46TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement after Joe Biden was announced the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.
“We are extremely fortunate to live in a nation where the people choose their leaders. I congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris on this historic victory. The American people have spoken and now it is time for us to move forward. It may feel like we are more divided than ever after a challenging election season compounded by an ongoing pandemic, but we saw unprecedented participation in this election, and it is that passion and commitment to civic duty that will carry our country forward. Similarly, a peaceful transition of power is the hallmark of a healthy democracy. I look forward to seeing that process carried out in accordance with our proud American tradition.
“Now we must turn to the serious challenges before us. I look forward to working with President-elect Biden to address our shared concerns like the COVID-19 pandemic, economic recovery, criminal justice reform and climate change. I’m confident America will overcome these challenges and come out stronger than ever. Let’s get to work!”
