‘Honored and humbled’ Joe Biden declares victory

    In a statement on his campaign site Saturday, Joe Biden declared victory after multiple sources named him the projected winner of Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes, bringing his total to 273.

    The statement reads:

    “My fellow Americans —

    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.

    We are the United States of America. And there’s nothing we can’t do, if we do it together.”
