GARDEN CITY, NY – Representative Kathleen Rice (NY-04) released the following statement on the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris:

“I want to extend my congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris! This was a historic election. Joe Biden received more votes than anyone running for President in our nation’s history. And for the first time, a woman will be the Vice President of the United States - sending a clear message to little girls in every corner of this country that they too can be anything they want to be. 

“While the results are clear, our nation remains divided as we await the final tallies. However, I am filled with hope. I believe the Biden-Harris Administration will lead with dignity and help unify our nation once again. I look forward to working with the new Administration to bring an end to this pandemic, rebuild our economy, and deliver on our promises to the American people.”
