House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Joe Biden's victory over President Donald Trump is a "mandate for action."

The Democratic leader said in a statement Saturday: "Today marks the dawning of a new day of hope for America."

Pelosi called Biden's vote tally a "historic victory." She says President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will have a strong Democratic House majority "by their side."

Biden clinched the White House with a victory in Pennsylvania, the state where he was born. He also won Nevada on Saturday.
