Attorney General Tong Statement on the Peaceful Transfer of Power(Hartford, CT) – Attorney General William Tong issued the following statement on the peaceful transfer of power.
“This election was fair, legal, transparent, and accurate. Voters decided this outcome. Not the candidates. Not the courts. This is the genius of our Republic, and the beauty of our nation. We must now begin the peaceful transfer of power, as we have for more than 240 years. And we must reject all efforts now to sow chaos and confusion, and to undermine faith in our democratic process,” said Attorney General Tong. “I am proud of our people—Americans-- who have elected the first woman, the first African American, the first Asian Pacific American, Vice President in the history of our great nation. And a former state attorney general too!”
