Joe Biden Overtakes Trump, Leads In Pennsylvania
Joe Biden could be named the President of the United States soon after taking the lead in Pennsylvania with 20 electoral votes.
Biden seized control today, when counting of mailed ballot resumed.
Trump held an overnight lead with 3,285,965 votes to Biden’s 3,267,923 votes.
The picture as expected changed.
Biden is now holding 3,295,319 votes, against Trump’s 3,289,725 votes.
Pennsylvania has 20 electoral college votes.
Biden already has 264 electoral college votes, with Arizona added.
Even, without Arizona’s 11 votes, the 253 votes already in the kitty, along with Pennsylvania’s 20 votes, will give Biden 273 electoral college votes.
This is more than the 270 votes needed to clinch the presidency and close a tempestuous, divisive era in American history.
