Statement from Priorities USA Chairman Guy Cecil on President-Elect Joe Biden’s Decisive Victory

November 06, 2020

Priorities USA released the following statement from Chairman Guy Cecil:

“The American people have spoken clearly. Voters across the country stood up, made their voices heard and chose Joe Biden to lead us toward a better future. This is a victory for every single American — we have restored decency, honesty, and compassion to our nation’s highest office. As all the votes are tallied, it is clear that Joe Biden has won more votes than any candidate in history, flipped several states that went for Trump in 2016, and overwhelmingly earned a mandate from the American public to make change.

In the midst of our elation, the historic nature of this election should not be lost on us. We have taken one more step in realizing the full promise of America with the election of Kamala Harris as the first woman, and the first woman of color, to the office of the vice presidency.

This victory was made possible by millions of voters who made their voices heard and the thousands of campaign staffers, activists, and volunteers who put their hearts and souls into this campaign. Of course, I could not be more proud of our team at Priorities USA who worked tirelessly to reach millions of voters and move our country forward.

This is a historic milestone for our country — but the fight for justice continues. I know Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will fight every single day for our nation to live up to its highest ideals.”
