What Christian Leaders Are Saying About the Election So Far

Whew. Well, as many predicted, the election results probably won’t be clear for a few days yet as states across the U.S. labor to count up record numbers of ballots. Not much is clear as of this writing. Both parties failed to get the clear, divisive outcome they’d hoped for, with pollsters across the country once again embarrassingly off in their predictions about strong Democratic support in key states like Ohio, Wisconsin and Florida. Early Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump made good on threats to declare a pre-emptive victory before all the votes had been tallied and call for an end to ongoing counts, citing baseless claims of fraud.

All this means that a pivotal election remains up in the air for the time being, as millions of votes — many of them mail-in and absentee — continue to be counted. The country is likely in for a stressful few days. Here’s how faith leaders responded to the long night. We’ll be updating throughout the day as more takes come in.
