In a press event with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that Joe Biden received a “mandate.”
Pelosi’s claim comes despite many Democrats expressing disappointment that Democrats lost several House seats and did not take back the Senate.
in addition, Democrats failed to win Florida, Ohio or Texas, with Biden edging Trump in the key swing states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania by much slimmer margins that polling indicated.
“Let me just also say that what Joe Biden got in this election was a mandate,” Pelosi claimed “a mandate to address the challenges that our country faces as well as to have a positive initiative on how to grow the economy in a fair way and in order to do that we must address the COVID, the pandemic. We must.”
