Press Release

(FRESNO) - Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) released the following state after former Vice-President Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 United States Presidential election:

"Congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris”, said Costa. “The 2020 election is over."

"We have many challenges facing or country; COVID-19, the deep economic crisis, and a lack of trust and civility in which Americans question whether their government can come together to find solutions to our problems. It won’t be easy, but we must rise to the challenge of putting aside the partisan rancor and divisions to address these issues. When the people of the United States come together, we have always been able to overcome our most difficult challenges. 

"As always, on behalf of the people of our valley, I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress and the new Administration to find bipartisan solutions that will benefit all Americans."
