Joe Biden is the projected winner of the 2020 Presidential election after securing Pennsylvania, according to the Associated Press. According to several other news sources, Democratic nominee Joe Biden has been declared President-elect. However, official statements have not been made from either campaign. Joe Biden, after securing Pennsylvania and their 20 electoral votes, released a statement Saturday morning saying,” I am honored and humbled by the trust of the American people have placed in me and Vice President-elect Harris.” Current President Trump also released a statement saying, “The simple fact is this election is far from over.”
There is a long road ahead for both projected President-elect Biden and President Trump, as there are still lawsuits pending to contest votes, recounts, and so forth. The Trump campaign has filed at least six lawsuits in battleground states since election day, November 3, 2020.
