Joe Biden has won the presidency.
Biden got more votes than any presidential candidate in history.
It wasn’t easy.
He won despite egregious voter suppression efforts that extended to crippling the post office.
He won despite a torrent of vicious, false personal attacks and attempts to get a foreign power to manufacture dirt on him.
He won despite the incumbent’s illegal use of the White House for campaign events and his party’s convention.
He won despite a television network that helped the incumbent create an alternative universe and promote fear, hatred and divisiveness.
It wasn’t the landslide we’d hoped for. It wasn’t the total repudiation we’d hoped for. The incumbent still got 70 million Americans to vote for him.
But our four-year nightmare is over.
The daily reality show of corruption, chaos and dishonesty is over.
Democracy has been saved.
And we’ve reaffirmed that truth matters.
Black lives matter.
We still have much work to do, but this was a great day for the United States of America.
