WASHINGTON –Today, Representative Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11) released the following statement regarding the election of Joe Biden as the next President of the United States:
“I am pleased to congratulate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for being elected the next President and Vice President of the United States. Through his leadership, empathy and dedication to bringing us together, President-Elect Biden has demonstrated why he is the right President for this moment. He has never stopped fighting to restore the soul of America, and I know he will maintain his commitment to do what is in the interest of every American, not just those who supported him at the ballot box. From his first day in office onward, President-Elect Biden will restore integrity, decency, and honor to the White House.
“I could not be prouder of Senator Harris for making history by becoming the first woman, Black woman and Asian American Vice President. She has shattered the next glass ceiling, but she will not stop there. A fearless trailblazer and an unparalleled public servant, Vice President-Elect Harris is uniquely positioned to deliver on the transformational change we so desperately need.
“In an election of record-breaking turnout, the American people have made clear who we are and who we aspire to be. Difficult times are ahead, but I have no doubt President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris have what it takes to help us build back better. I look forward to working with them to tackle the challenges ahead, from defeating the pandemic to addressing the racial and economic inequality that continues to grip our nation.”
