Massachusetts politicians weighed in starting early Wednesday as the 2020 presidential election remained undecided, with several battleground states continuing to count ballots.

Despite the race remaining tight and uncalled, President Donald Trump falsely claimed victory in a speech before supporters at the White House early Wednesday. In his speech to supporters, Joe Biden said he believed he was on track to win, but urged patience and said the race isn’t over “until every vote is counted.”

Below, what members of the Massachusetts congressional delegation and elected officials in the state have said Wednesday in response to the nail-biting election.

Sen. Ed Markey

Gov. Charlie Baker
