Only hours after the announcement early on Friday morning that Biden had eclipsed Trump in Georgia, multiple news outlets are reporting that the former vice president has now eased ahead of President Trump in Pennsylvania by less than 6,000 votes while maintaining an even smaller lead in the peach state of around 1,000 votes.
Both races remained too early to call with votes still being counted. Neither candidate has reached the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House, though Biden has the advantage after eclipsing Trump in Wisconsin and Michigan, two crucial Midwestern battleground states.
According to state data in Pennsylvania, there are still 163,501 or fewer mail-in ballots left to be counted, and 92,500 provisional ballots to be counted.
It’s been a historic election, to be sure. With millions of ballots yet to be counted, Biden has already received more than 73 million votes nationally, the most in history. Meanwhile, President Trump has garnered the largest amount of non-white votes for the GOP in 60 years.
