WASHINGTON—Heritage Foundation President Kay C. James made the following statement about the 2020 presidential election results.
“The American people deserve and demand election results they can trust. When the litigation in the critical battleground states has been settled and all allegations of fraud and irregularities have been investigated, that’s what they will have.
Unfortunately, we are not there yet. Recounts and pending litigation must be resolved to the satisfaction of the political parties and the Americans who support them and voted for them.
Election integrity is a pillar of our Republic, and without it, we won’t last. For the sake of this election and all of the subsequent elections in generations to come, we must come to a legitimate conclusion. Anyone rushing to the finish, including the media and those with a vested interest in one outcome, are doing a disservice to the country.
Like Vice President Biden has said, democracy, “sometimes requires a little patience.”
