LAS VEGAS, NV – This morning, former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris were forecasted as the projected President and Vice President-elect by several media decision desks.
Annette Magnus, Executive Director of Battle Born Progress, said the following:
“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ projected victory in the electoral college signals a welcome end to the national nightmare that has been the Donald Trump administration. Even as votes are still being counted, today is a day four years in the making, as we, and the organizations comprising the America Votes table worked tirelessly in response to the 2016 election to educate and mobilize voters to support progressive candidates up and down the ballot through both 2018 and 2020. We congratulate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their successful campaign. We know their work is cut out for them undoing the damage of the Trump administration, but we have confidence that Biden’s experience and determination put him in a fine position to meet this challenge. In addition, we look forward to Harris taking up the mantle as the nation’s first woman, first Black woman, and first Asian American woman to be Vice President. Her leadership will certainly be an asset to getting this country back on the right track in handling the COVID-19 pandemic and repairing our economy.”
“While news networks have made the call in other states, including Nevada, we still encourage our state and every state to keep up the good work of counting each and every vote. We must ensure the results accurately reflect the will of the people, not just for president, but for every down-ballot race as well. While the Adam Laxalts of the world conspire hair-brained legal schemes in an attempt to throw out legal votes, election officials across the country should not be deterred neither by their threats, nor by today’s race projection announcement. Clark County Registrar Joe Gloria continues to do phenomenal work protecting our democratic process here in Nevada and we look forward to seeing through the full counting of votes in Nevada throughout the coming days.”
