Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine refused to say Joe Biden was the “president-elect” on Nov. 9, but the Republican changed his mind during a CNN interview on Nov. 12:
We need to consider the former vice president as the president-elect. Joe Biden is the president-elect.
This contradicted DeWine’s statement on Nov. 9:
I congratulate Vice-President Biden. When lawsuits have concluded and election results are certified, it is important for all Americans to honor the outcome.
