Live coverage: Joe Biden wins presidency, CBS News projects
CBS News projects Joe Biden has secured enough electoral votes to become the 46th president of the United States, defeating President Trump and capturing the White House after a bitter campaign that exposed deep divides in the country.
Now the president-elect, Biden took an insurmountable lead in Pennsylvania on Saturday morning, the fifth day of vote-counting after Election Day. His victory in the Keystone States gave him 273 electoral votes from states where a winner has been projected, surpassing the 270 majority needed to win.
“I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris,” Biden said. “In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America.”
