On Friday morning just before 9 a.m. Eastern, Decision Desk called the State of Pennsylvania for Democratic nominee Joe Biden, giving Biden 273 electoral votes and the presidency. According to Decision Desk, Biden win with just over 5,000 votes. The vote-counting is not over yet, however. The results take some time to confirm and President Donald Trump’s campaign has formally requested a recount in at least one swing state.
“Decision Desk HQ projects that [Joe Biden] has won Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral college votes for a total of 273,” Decision Desk tweeted at 8:50 a.m. Eastern. “Joe Biden has been elected the 46th President of the United States of America.”
