Biden Officially President-Elect; Our Delegation Should Move Forward 

BISMARCK, ND — Today, members of the Electoral College gathered across the nation to officially name Joe Biden President-elect. The Supreme Court quickly dismissed the Trump campaign’s allegations last week in a baseless lawsuit supported by North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem. The Trump team has lost more than 50 attempts to overturn the free and fair election because they have not produced a shred of evidence to support their claims.

For the sake of the nation and to encourage a peaceful transfer of power, North Dakota’s congressional delegation Sen. Cramer, Sen. Hoeven, and Rep. Armstrong must embrace Biden as president-elect.

The Democratic-NPL Party Chairwoman Kylie Oversen said:

“Our congressional representatives should already be working with the new administration for an America and North Dakota economy that works for all of us, especially in the middle of a public health and economic crisis. Instead, they’ve spent the last six weeks opposing the results of a free and fair election. Their failure to admit the obvious and to respect the will of voters nationwide will leave the United States and North Dakota weaker. They need to stop playing games and get to work.”
