Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States of America.
Kamala Harris will be the next vice president of the United States of America.
The message from the American people was heard loud and clear: we embrace Joe Biden’s vision for a country that includes everyone and we reject Donald Trump’s divisive politics. And while Trump continues to stomp his feet in defeat and spread his false narrative about the election, Joe Biden is focused on bringing the people of our nation together.
In Texas, although we fell short of winning the state House, I am gratified that nearly every single Democratic incumbent won re-election and Democrats will again have 67 seats in the House. Here in Tarrant County, for the second election in a row, it looks like Democrats will win at the top of the ticket.
In District 101, the voters once again chose me to represent them. It’s an incredible honor to serve our community here at home and at our state Capitol. It’s a commitment I take very seriously and one I will never take for granted.
Although the outcomes weren’t all we had hoped for, we have much to celebrate. At the top of the list: the end of the Donald Trump presidency.
In President-elect Joe Biden’s America, I have faith that we will begin to heal.
