Republicans take to social media to congratulate President-Elect Biden
Some Congressional Republicans took to social media to congratulate President-Elect Biden as news broke just hours ago that he’d won the presidential election.
Among them was Florida Congressman Francis Rooney who said in his statement via Facebook, “All Americans need to come together in supporting President-elect Biden.”
Other Republican Governors and Congressman took to Twitter.
Ann and I extend our congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. We know both of them as people of good will and admirable character. We pray that God may bless them in the days and years ahead.

The Governor of Maryland had this to say
Congratulations to President-elect Biden. Everyone should want our president to succeed because we need our country to succeed. We have great challenges ahead of us as a country. Now more than ever, we need to come together as Americans.

However, many top Republicans are backing President Trump in saying there must be investigations into the legality of the vote-counting.
The U.S. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, said, “There are still serious legal challenges that have been made, and until that process is resolved, the election is not final.”
The election isn’t over until all legal votes are counted and certified. There are still serious legal challenges that have been made, and until that process is resolved, the election is not final.
The American people deserve a fair and transparent process.

The media do not get to determine who the president is. The people do. When all lawful votes have been counted, recounts finished, and allegations of fraud addressed, we will know who the winner is
