McConnell Finally Recognizes Biden As President-Elect

Politico reports:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recognized Joe Biden as the president-elect of the United States for the first time on Tuesday, after declining to do so while President Donald Trump contested the election results.

“Our country has officially a president-elect and a vice-president elect,” the Kentucky Republican said. McConnell’s recognition of Biden came at the tail end of a long speech praising Trump’s accomplishments.
