Ben Sasse “Melissa and I congratulate the next president, Joe Biden”

In a statement Sunday, Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse congratulated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

Sasse said in a statement “Melissa and I congratulate the next president, Joe Biden, and the next vice president, Kamala Harris.”

He added “Today in our house we pray for both President Trump and President-Elect Biden, that both would be wise in the execution of their respective duties during this important time in our nation.”

Sasse’s statement came after multiple news outlets projected Biden the winner of the Presidential race, including AP and the Fox News decision desk.

However, Trump has not conceded and his campaign has filed legal challenges in multiple states.

3 other Republican Senators have congratulated Biden – Susan Collins, Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski.
