Statement from U.S. Sen. Ed Markey on Joe Biden and Kamala Harris victory

Now is the time for unity, for healing, and for taking action to address the crises confronting our country and our planet.

Now that the votes have been counted, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are our next President and Vice President. This is an historic victory for all Americans—for workers, for immigrants, for women, for communities of color, for everyone who believes in science, equality, justice, and decency. Now is the time for unity, for healing, and for taking action to address the crises confronting our country and our planet. We will rebuild and emerge stronger under the leadership of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. There will surely be hard times to come, but brighter days are ahead.
