(KGTV) -- Local leaders throughout San Diego County reacted Saturday to news that Joe Biden won his bid for the presidency.
The election was called by the Associated Press after Biden won Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes. Biden was later declared victorious in Nevada, the AP reported.
While many celebrated the win, Tony Krvaric, Chairman of the Republican Party of San Diego County echoed President Trump's statement, saying the election will be over when results are certified.
The election for president will be over when results are duly certified, not when media conglomerates decide. We stand with President Trump in using every legal avenue to ensure all legitimate votes are counted so that the American People can have confidence in their elections.

It has been a long four years with Donald Trump in the White House. And for so many of us, it was hard to see a way out. Every day there was something new to be upset or worried about. Another heartbreaking or horrific thing to come out of this White House.
