Following a tense week of vote tallying, Joe Biden won the state of Pennsylvania to put him ahead in the race to become the next president of the United States.
Biden’s win in the critical state put him over the threshold of 270 electoral votes, cutting off all avenues for his opponent.
Biden prevailed by flipping key states that went to Trump in 2016, including Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Trump again won in Florida and Ohio, but in the end, was unable to chart a path to an electoral victory. Biden also leads by millions in the popular vote, with a record number of votes cast this year, many through the mail.
As his vice president, Kamala Harris will make history in myriad ways, becoming the first woman — and the first woman of color — to occupy the office.
Biden has really waited for the presidency for long. He first gave a shot at the presidency in 1988, then 2008 and 2020. For both 1988 and 2008, he never got the chance to lead his party. Longest-serving senator for the state of Delaware. The fourth youngest person in the US to enter the senate
