WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) released the following statement today after the election of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris:

“In a historic moment for our nation, the American people – in record-breaking fashion – voted to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House. During this challenging time for our country, this is the team to unite us in the fight against COVID-19, work with Congress to provide critical assistance to millions of American families and small businesses and put us on a path to sustained economic recovery.

“I look forward to working with President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris as we restore the promise of American democracy by cleaning up corruption, instilling a culture of ethics and accountability in our government and protecting and expanding the sacred right to vote. Uprooting the entrenched special interests in Washington will pave the way for a progressive agenda that includes lowering the cost of health care and prescription drug prices, ending police brutality and advancing the cause of racial justice, tackling the climate crisis, providing every American with the opportunity to secure a good-paying job with a living wage, enacting critical gun safety reforms and improving our education system so that every child can succeed.”
