“Senator Brown will be attending the inauguration virtually, as President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris have urged Americans to do to stop the spread of COVID-19,” according to a statement from his office.

“I have worked with every President from Bill Clinton onward to advocate for our community and strengthen our national security. I will work diligently with President Joe Biden, whom I know personally and have worked closely with,” Turner said. “Thank you to the Capitol Police, National Guard, and all those who are working to ensure a peaceful transition of power, which is vital to our democracy.”

Biden and Harris won the Nov. 3 election by more than 7 million votes. President Donald Trump, who has been impeached on a charge of inciting insurrection in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, refused to attend the inauguration and left for Florida Wednesday morning. Vice President Mike Pence is expected to attend.
