Monday, Maine Senator Susan Collins became the fourth GOP Senator to congratulate Joe Biden.
Collins said in a statement “I would offer my congratulations to President-elect Biden on his apparent victory – he loves this country, and I wish him every success.”
The other 3 GOP Senators who have congratulated Biden are:
Senator Mitt Romney (Utah)
Senator Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
and Senator Ben Sasse (Nebraska)
Collins also wrote “I understand that the President and others have questions about the results in certain states. There is a process in place to challenge those results and, consistent with that process, the President should be afforded the opportunity to do so.”
“I know that many are eager to have certainty right now,” she continued “While we have a clear direction, we should continue to respect that process. I urge people to be patient. The process has not failed our country in more than 200 years, and it is not going to fail our country this year.”
