The presidential race remains too close to call, but Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is closing in on securing enough electoral votes to win, after news outlets projected him winning two key states in the Midwest: Wisconsin and Michigan. According to the Associated Press, Biden has now secured 264 electoral votes. He will reach the needed 270 if he wins any of the four undecided races: Nevada, where he has a slim lead of less than 8,000 votes; Georgia, where Trump is winning by 18,000 votes; North Carolina, where Trump is leading by 77,000 votes; or Pennsylvania, where Trump is up by 165,000, but many absentee ballots have still not been counted. Biden briefly spoke on Wednesday.
Joe Biden: “I’m not here to declare that we’ve won, but I am here to report, when the count is finished, we believe we will be the winners.”
