Democratic nominee Joe Biden has defeated President Trump in the 2020 Presidential election as he secured the 270 electoral college votes required to win the race, according to projections by the Associated Press, NBC News and other news outlets. In a victory speech on Saturday Biden said: “I Pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide, but unify. Who doesn’t see red states and blues states, only sees the United States.”

It was Biden’s native state, Pennsylvania, that put him over the top, the state he invoked throughout his campaign to connect with working class voters. He also won Nevada pushing his total to 290 electoral college votes.

The 2020 presidential election had a record breaking 103 million early votes cast, and over 75 million of the American people voted for President-elect Biden, more than any candidate before him. Biden’s transition team will begin working today, continuing the task of planning staff appointments, executive orders and policy proposals to allow him to hit the ground running come Jan 20, 2021.
