(Washington, DC) — The Office of Rep. Kirkpatrick released the following statement ahead of the Joint Session to count and certify electoral votes.
“Our election will be certified and we will usher in the Biden-Harris administration,” said Rep. Kirkpatrick. “Any challenge to this certification creates a dangerous precedent. The American people have spoken and they have spoken loudly — the historic turnout for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris reflects that.
“Republican’s refusal to abandon these wild conspiracy theories and baseless claims of voter fraud is disturbing, and worse, undermines faith in our democracy. The time and taxpayer dollars spent trying to overturn this election have far better uses — an obvious one is serving the American people through this national health crisis.
“Our democratic principles are strong and we must adhere to them. Our elections are decided by the people. The assault on our time-tested system needs to stop. Let’s move forward so that we can make progress, together.”
