House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a news conference Friday that it was "clear" that former Vice President Joe Biden had won the 2020 presidential election.
"It is clear this morning that Biden Harris' candidacy will win the White House," Pelosi said, "his election is historic, fueled by the largest vote in the nation's history."
“President-elect Biden has a strong mandate to lead, and he’ll have a strong Democratic House with him,” she added.
“This has been a life or death fight for the fate of our democracy, as he says the soul of our country,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi’s comments emerge as Republicans managed to flip at least six congressional seats.
Pelosi bragged in August that she would increase her House majority by “double digits.”
