As several key national races remain uncalled and former Vice President Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump in the Electoral College 238-213, here is what political figures in Colorado are saying the morning after Election Day:

"We have to be patient. This election isn't over until we count every vote." —U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet

"Millions of votes remain to be counted in MI, WI, PA, and GA. For the president to declare victory and disenfranchise those legally casted ballots is as unAmerican and treasonous of our Constitution as we’ve ever witnessed in modern US history. #copolitics#CountEveryVote" —Former Rep. Joe Salazar, D-Thornton

"Trump stayed away from Colorado. COGOP kept Trump away too. Big mistake. On a national election, the way is never around but through. Bold vision, clear distinctions." —Jeff Hunt, director of the Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University

"Media makes premature calls for Biden all night: Shrug. Biden says he is winning: Shrug. Trump says he is winning and calls out Left’s obvious , planned #electionmeddling and obstruction chicanery: Left and #ConInc join in virtue signaling meltdown" —Michelle Malkin

"It is important that every vote is counted. We are in a great position to win this election for @JoeBiden. Patience is difficult but important. I'm feeling good about where we are this morning." —U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette
