Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) issued the following statement:
“Congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris! America made clear who we are as a nation.
“In electing Joe Biden, a man whose compassion and kindness has defined his service, America made clear who we want to be. The son of Scranton is a man whose life has been defined by struggle, like so many of us. And our nation’s first woman Vice-President, a daughter of immigrants, embodies the hopes and aspirations of our nation.
“We now have the opportunity to come together as a nation to tackle our collective challenges. Make no mistake, there are still tough times and hard work ahead, but I know Joe and Kamala will unite us and help us build back stronger.
“The story of America has always been a story of struggle between competing ideas, traditions, and politics. But out of that competition and struggle we have found a way to move forward.
“I often think back to my time in the Army. The soldiers I served with looked like America. Different backgrounds, races, faiths, and politics. We drew strength from that diversity and found a way to come together to accomplish our mission, and come home together. That is what we must now do.
“Tomorrow the sun will rise on America like it always does. But it will be different. It will be the dawn of a new day for our nation.”
