Baker Says Bush Gratified By Supreme Court Decision

December 12, 2000

These are the comments of James Baker, former Secretary of State and Spokesman for the Bush campaign, following the announcement of the United States Supreme Court decision on the Florida recounts:

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

I have just spoken to Governor Bush and Secretary Cheney. They are, of course, very pleased and gratified that seven justices of the United States Supreme Court agreed that there were constitutional problems with the recount ordered by the Florida Supreme Court.

They wanted me to once again express their appreciation to the fine legal team and the hundreds of volunteers who have worked here in Florida on their behalf, for the last 35 days.

This has been a long and arduous process for everyone involved on both sides.

Thank you and good evening.
