Former first lady Michelle Obama reached out to her husband's former running mate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to congratulate them on their projected win and she couldn't resist taking a dig at the current administration.
Mrs. Obama wrote on Twitter, "I'm beyond thrilled that my friend Joe Biden and our first Black and Indian-American woman Vice President, Kamala Harris, are headed to restore some dignity, competence, and heart at the White House."
"Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division," Obama wrote. "We’ve got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us."
She also reminded everyone of the importance of voting.
"We see now the reality that we can’t take even the tiniest part of our democracy for granted," she continued. "Every single vote must count — and every single one of us must vote. And as a country, we should be making it easier, not harder to cast a ballot."
The former first lady urged Americans to stay involved in politics and pointed to January's runoff elections for Georgia's two Senate seats.
"So it’s up to us to stay engaged and informed, to keep speaking out and marching on," said Michelle. "We’ve got to vote in even greater numbers in the upcoming Senate runoffs in Georgia—and every state and local election going forward."
Former President Barack Obama also commended Biden and Harris for their win.
"I could not be prouder to congratulate our next President, Joe Biden, and our next First Lady, Jill Biden," Obama said.
Even though Obama didn't endorse his former running mate until after the Democratic presidential primary was over he did help out during the last stretch of the race by hitting the campaign trail in swing states like Michigan and Florida.
