“I’m here to tell you tonight that we think we are on track to win this election,” he said from Wilmington, Delaware. “It’s not over until every vote is counted, every ballot is counted.”
In his forceful 12:42 a.m. speech, Biden said his team was feeling good for Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan and, surprisingly, Georgia.
“And by the way, it will take time to count the votes, but we’re going to win Pennsylvania,” he said.
While swing state Ohio has opted for Trump, other battlegrounds like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are unlikely to be called overnight.
“We knew because of the advance poll and the unprecedented postal vote that it was going to take a while,” Biden said in his brief speech. “We will have to be patient until the hard work of counting the votes is over.”
He stressed that it was not up to him or President Donald Trump to call the election.
Moments after Biden’s speech, Trump took to Twitter to proclaim that his campaign was “BIG” but “they are trying to STEAL the election.”
