Charlie Baker Congratulates Biden On Election

November 11, 2020

President Donald Trump has not conceded the 2020 presidential election, but Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker is already congratulating his opponent.

Baker put out a tweet this past weekend congratulating both former vice president Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris.

He also called for a quick resolution to the conflict over who won:


I congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris on their victory. This has been a long and divisive campaign, but now it is critical for us all to focus on the very real and immediate challenges facing this nation.

If the courts do get involved, they must move quickly to make fact-based, lawful decisions, because the people of this nation — who came out and voted in record numbers — deserve a government …

… that can work collaboratively to fight COVID-19, rebuild our economy and give people hope that there will be a positive path forward.
