President Biden is set to hold a press conference at 4 p.m. ET Wednesday as numerous key congressional races around the U.S. remain too close to call.
In his first tweet post-Election Day, Biden wrote “Democracy doesn’t happen by accident. We have to defend, strengthen, and renew it.
“I’ll have more to say this afternoon, but thanks to the poll workers and officials that worked into the night to safeguard our sacred right to vote,” he added. “And the millions who made their voices heard.”
