HARTFORD—U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) issued the following statement on the 2020 election:

“Joe Biden is a man for this time, and I am thrilled the American people have spoken, and by decisive margin chosen him as our next President. This is good news for democracy, our country, and Connecticut,” said Murphy. “No doubt, Donald Trump will not go away quietly, and now President-Elect Biden begins the unenviable balancing act of beginning a transition while simultaneously having to bat down frivolous legal and political challenges from President Trump. But the people have spoken, and now the peaceful handover of power must begin.”
