WASHINGTON, D.C. - Rep. Dean Phillips (MN-03) made the following statement after the Electoral College certified results of the 2020 Presidential Election:

"Inspiring a new era of collaboration in Congress and restoring Americans’ faith in our government requires thoughtful compromise, but when it comes to protecting the foundations of American democracy there is no middle ground. Joe Biden is President-elect. 

Our democratic republic, if we can keep it, depends on elected leaders who demonstrate political courage when we need it most. Every Republican who has shared this truth, pushed back on dangerous conspiracy theories, and protected America from communism and fascism is a patriot – and history will remember them as such.

Now is the time for unity, for truth, and for optimism. Our best days are still ahead."
