Yesterday morning, the nation and the world learned that Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. is the 46th president-elect of the United States. Kamala Devi Harris is the first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president-elect. This is a stunning victory for the country, the world and the planet.
We all breathed a sigh of relief.
Yesterday afternoon, voters delivered Arizona for Joe Biden, a win for Democrats that has not been seen since 1996. Every single voter, volunteer campaign worker and candidate is to be applauded for this victory!
Congratulations to all the winners here in Yavapai County and deep gratitude to those who did not win. We are all in your debt for your sacrifices and hard work, thank you!
We all deserve to celebrate!
As we all sit back and celebrate this win, let us reflect on the losses as well, to remember what has been lost.
Let us all take a moment in silence.
1,004 Black Americans fatally shot by police
238,223 Americans who have died due to COVID19
2,800 immigrant families separated since 2018.
545 immigrant children still separated from their parents
Countless people are still suffering due to the lack of leadership over the past four years.
Now we look forward with hope and begin the work to heal, rebuild and restore our nation. It will take every one of us to do this. The work is not over.
In order to enact real change, we must win the Senate. All eyes are on Georgia, where Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Democratic challenger Rev. Raphael Warnock, and Republican incumbent Sen. David Perdue and Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff will rematch in runoff elections on Jan. 5.
Winning these two seats would give Democrats voting control in the Senate. Everythin hinges on these wins, otherwise we have four years of Republicans blocking every legislative and reform initiative.
Be in no doubt the fate of the planet could hinge on these two races.
From all of us at the Yavapai County Democratic Party.
Thank you to all of you made phone calls and texts, volunteered for campaigns, donated and voted.
None of this would have been possible without you.
The Yavapai County Democratic Party is your party and we are deeply grateful for every single one of you!
