Vice President-elect Kamala Harris gave an upbeat victory speech on Saturday evening.
The California senator began by talking about legendary Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) and praising democracy.
“You ushered in a new day for America,” Harris said, to honking from the vehicles at the car rally.
“And to the American people, thank you to turning out in record numbers to ensure your voice was heard,” she said. “You chose hope and decency and science and, yes, truth.”
She offered praise for campaign volunteers, poll workers, voters and all the trailblazers who came before her.
