FOX News, Associated Press, CBS, NBC, ABC, and CNN have projected Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election. President Trump has said he will continue with legal challenges of the voting process at last report.
The news organizations withheld their projections until their analysts felt that mathematically there was no chance of the president gaining the needed 270 electors.
Biden issued the following statement:
I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris.
In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America.
With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation.
It’s time for America to unite. And to heal.
