(NEXSTAR) — Within minutes of media outlets calling the 2020 election for Joe Biden, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reacted to the news on Twitter.
“It’s a history-making ticket, a repudiation of Trump, and a new page for America,” wrote the 2016 Democratic nominee.
Clinton fell to President Donald Trump in the 2016 race despite winning the popular vote by about 3 million votes.
That contentious race set the stage for deep political division over the last four years.
Biden said in a statement Saturday, “With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation.”
“We are the United States of America,” he wrote. “And there’s nothing we can’t do, if we do it together.”
Biden made no mention of Trump, who has not conceded the race.
Biden clinched the White House with a victory in Pennsylvania, the state where he was born. He is set to be the 46th president of the United States.
