Joe Biden has won the election and is now the president-elect.
“With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation,” he said. “It’s time for American to unit and to heal.”
Governor Andrew Cuomo called Biden’s election “a historic day, after the darkness, division and hate of the past four years. America has spoken and rejected more of the same.”
The governor said, “Today we go forward in hope and progress.”
Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris will be sworn in in January.
