Fact-Check: “Official sources may not have called the race when Nancy Pelosi made this statement”
“Today marks the dawning of a new day of hope for America. A record-shattering 75 million Americans cast their ballots to elect Joe Biden President of the United States – a historic victory that has handed Democrats a mandate for action,” the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement.
“In President-elect Joe Biden, Americans elected a leader ready on Day One to finally begin to crush the coronavirus so we can safely reopen our economy and school,” continued Pelosi.
“In President-elect Biden, the American people delivered a mandate for lower health costs, a mandate for creating bigger paychecks by rebuilding America’s infrastructure, and a mandate for a cleaner government that works for the public interest, not the special interests. And in President-elect Biden, they have elected a unifier who values faith, family, and community, and who will work tirelessly to heal our nation.”
“President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris won with a strong margin, and they will have a strong Democratic House Majority by their side. Working together, we have the opportunity to deliver extraordinary progress For The People.”
