As the major news networks and The Associated Press almost simultaneously on Saturday projected the Democratic presidential ticket of Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris of California had won the 2020 election, the pair made it Twitter official.
Biden’s Twitter bio listed him as president-elect, while Harris was designated as vice president-elect.
Biden’s Twitter also displayed a victory video thanking the country for electing him, and a pledge to put partisan squabbling aside and work on behalf of all Americans. Harris displayed an emotional video showing her calling Biden as the news of the win had just emerged.
America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country.
The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not.
I will keep the faith that you have placed in me. pic.twitter.com/moA9qhmjn8
