BIDEN TRANSITION/COVID-19: “There’s a great meeting we had today. All the governors, no matter their political party, whether they’re from wherever part of the country they represented, no matter what their political philosophy, shared a strong and abiding sense of a common purpose. There was a real desire for a real partnership between the states and the federal government. Each of the governors emphasized that we might be Democrats or Republicans, but we’re all Americans first. They congratulated us heartedly for our win.
What really pleased me was most was the governors made clear that beating COVID-19 is going to require all of us working together as one country.”
