Message from Joe Biden:
After a couple long days of counting, it is clear we are winning in enough states to reach the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.
I am here to report that when the count is finished, I believe I will be the winner.
We knew — because of the unprecedented early vote and the mail-in vote — that it was going to take a while. We’re going to have to be patient until the hard work of tallying the votes is finished. And it ain’t over until every vote is counted, every ballot is counted.
With all the votes counted, we have won Wisconsin and Michigan. And I feel very good about Pennsylvania. We flipped Arizona and the second district of Nebraska.
Of special significance to me is that we’ve won with the majority of the American people, and every indication is that the majority will grow.
As I’ve said all along, it’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to declare who’s won this election. That’s the decision of the American people.
“We the People” will not be silenced. “We the People” will not be bullied. “We the People” will not surrender. That’s why we launched the Biden Fight Fund to count every vote — and why I’m asking if you’ll chip in $25 to fund election protection efforts for our campaign and Democrats up and down the ballot.
We once again proved that democracy is the heartbeat of our nation — just as it has been for more than two centuries.
Even in the face of a pandemic, more Americans voted in this election than ever before in American history. Over 150 million votes were cast. I think that’s just extraordinary.
I’m grateful to the poll workers, to our volunteers, our canvassers, everyone that participated in this democratic process.
And I’m grateful to all of my supporters all across the nation. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Every time I walked out of my grandpa’s house up in Scranton, he’d yell, “Joey, Keep the faith.” And my Grandma, when she was alive, would yell, “No, Joey spread it.”
Now, we have to keep the faith.
If you’re with me and Democrats across the country, I hope you’ll chip in to the Biden Fight Fund today.
Keep the faith guys, we’re going to win this.
