Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) officially addressed Joe Biden as president-elect on Tuesday, saying in a speech on the Senate floor: "The Electoral College has spoken."

Why it matters: McConnell is the most prominent Republican to concede that President Trump lost the November election and congratulate Biden on his victory.

Most Republicans on Capitol Hill have refused to acknowledge that Biden had won given Trump's extended legal battle contesting the elections results.

But after Biden officially secured 270 electoral votes in Monday's meeting of the Electoral College, a growing number of GOP lawmakers are conceding that Trump lost and preparing for the next administration.

2. Mitch has betrayed Trump. Trump should pay him back in the only way to hurt Mitch

Trump should order his followers in Georgia to sit out the Senate elections there. That is the only way for Trump to be a winner after Mitch's brutal betrayal of Trump.

3. While I welcome this, we must all remain vigilant

We have just seen an administration that pulled out tactics unseen in over a century to, in effect, attempt a coup. We've also just undergone a cyberattack of unknown magnitude (apparently from Russia), and the death of Dana Rorbacher's onetime aide may be an accident, or may be a sign that a string of Russian espionage-related killings are coming. Black churches were attacked. Proud boy types are setting for a fight.

I have no illusions that the next month + one week will be easy.

5. If the nickname "Turtle" ever did fit a person

Slow and no-show Mitch, If there is a God in heaven-please elect those two senators from Georgia and stop this foolish, destructive man.
