Texas GOP lawmaker “it would be unwise to accept any outcome before recounts are final”

Moments ago, reacting to new outlets declaring Joe Biden has won the Presidency, Texas lawmaker Rep. Arrington tweeted:

1/3) As much as the country would like to move on from this election, it would be unwise to accept any outcome before recounts are final and it has been examined by the courts and determined to be fair and accurate.

(2/3) Anything less will only further divide our nation, disenfranchise millions of voters, cast doubt on the integrity of our elections, and discredit and debilitate whomever occupies the Oval Office.

(3/3) Peacefully and patiently letting this process run its course and then accepting any final legal outcome is both wise and patriotic.

President Trump has not conceded the race and issued the following defiant statement.
