Rep. Wasserman Schultz Statement on Biden Victory

(Sunrise, FL.) – Following news that Vice President Joe Biden had secured 270+ votes in the Electoral College and thus the Presidency, U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz issued the following statement:

“While all votes must still be counted, a clear electoral college majority has been achieved by Joe Biden, who will be our next President of the United States. President-elect Biden can now bring the honest, courageous and compassionate leadership to a White House that sorely lacked those qualities the last four years. He and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will now start the difficult work of healing a divided nation and pulling our country out of this painful health and economic crisis. I am inspired that a clear majority of voters saw promise in a Biden Administration, and I am very eager to work with them as they act on the strength of their mandate from the American people.
