President Joe Biden celebrated his 100th day in office, having succeeded twice on his administration’s COVID-19 vaccine goals, with an evening thank you speech in Duluth, Georgia. Biden thanked Georgia voters for their upset runoff election, turning both of Georgia’s Senate seats Democrat and making it possible for the Biden administration’s ambitious policies to become law.

“If you ever wonder if elections make a difference,” Biden told the Duluth crowd,  commending the two Sens. Jon Ossoff (D-Georgia) and Raphael Warnock (D-Georgia), who both won in the state’s historic runoff election.

“Your vote changed the world,” Biden said. “We’ve vastly expanded access. We got 100 million doses of vaccine, enough for every single American. And we’ve done it by getting vaccines to some 40,000 pharmacies across the country, 700 community centers,”

“What did you do? What did you do with your vote here in Georgia? Well, you changed America. You began to change America. And you’re helping us prove that democracy can still deliver for the people,” Biden told the jubilant crowd. “Because of you, we passed one of the most consequential rescue bills in American history.”
