|North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement:
“Today we have learned that after four years of division and darkness, the American people have chosen to set our country on a new path.
“Joe Biden is a man of character – a devoted husband, a loving father, a dedicated public servant, and, as of this morning, our President-Elect. On behalf of Democrats across North Carolina, I’m thrilled to congratulate him and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris for their historic victory.
“Our country faces many challenges in the months ahead, but I have no doubt Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the leaders to meet this moment. Their administration will provide the leadership, vision and unifying message we need to overcome this pandemic and help our country build back better.
“While votes continue to be counted here in North Carolina, today we celebrate an enormous victory for decency, for compassion, and for the American people.”
