McConnell Acknowledges Biden-Harris Win

“Our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on Jan. 20. The Electoral College has spoken. … So today I want to congratulate President-Elect Joe Biden. The president-elect is no stranger to the Senate. He’s devoted himself to public service for many years. … I also want to congratulate the vice president-elect, our colleague from California — Sen. Harris. Beyond our differences, all Americans can take pride that our nation has a female vice president-elect for the very first time.”

— Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the Senate floor, per the New York Times.
