Today, Christie Todd Whitman, former Governor of New Jersey and Chairwoman of the Steering Committee for Republicans and Independents for Biden issued the following statement congratulating President-Elect Joe Biden:

“The votes have been counted and Joe Biden is the President-elect of the United States.

This election has been a difficult, trying time for our country but our institutions and our processes have withstood the pressure and delivered a result amidst the unprecedented backdrop of a pandemic.

Free and fair elections and the peaceful transfer of power are the hallmarks of our democracy. Regardless of who you voted for, we urge our fellow Republicans and all Americans to come together to ensure that this transition happens in an orderly fashion and without delay.

Claims of voter fraud, rigging, or other rhetoric undermining the integrity of the election or the result by the President or anyone else are undemocratic, unamerican and wrong. Both campaigns have the Constitutional right to avail themselves of the legal system, but there is no evidence to suggest this election was anything but free and fair.

The American people elected Joe Biden because he has shown that the has the strength of character and experience to bring this country together.

In the coming days, we look forward to supporting Joe Biden as he prepares to assume the presidency and tackle the greatest crisis of our lifetimes – defeating the coronavirus and bringing back the American economy.”
