WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Armed Services Committee Vice Chair Anthony G. Brown (MD-04) released the following statement on the election of Joseph R. Biden as the 46th President of the United States and the historic election of Senator Kamala Harris as Vice President:
“The American people have spoken, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be the next President and Vice President of the United States. Despite a global pandemic, our democracy prevailed. At this critical moment, we chose decency and will restore the soul of this nation.
“This is a win for all Americans, regardless of party. President-elect Biden has the experience and empathy that our country needs in our Commander in Chief. As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, our economy struggles, climate change threatens our planet and we reckon with systemic racial inequality, the leadership of President-elect Biden will guide our country through these unprecedented times.
“I look forward to working with the incoming Biden administration to make this country more secure and prosperous. We will rebuild alliances that have been strained over the past four years and engage the global community. We will support our active-duty servicemembers and veterans, and uphold our sacred promise to them and their families.
“We will revitalize Black, Latino, urban and rural communities in this country that have been overlooked for far too long and have been devastated by this pandemic. We will ensure justice and equity extends throughout our criminal justice system, education, housing and health care. We will invest in modern infrastructure and create new, well-paying jobs along the way. We’re beginning a new chapter as a country. Under President-elect Biden, better days are ahead.”
