Election Update: Biden Becomes President-elect

Joseph R. Biden, Jr., on Saturday reached the key threshold of 270 electoral votes after it was determined he'd won Pennsylvania. He was later awarded Nevada and Arizona once their vote count was considered complete. Another key state, Georgia remains un-called as votes are still being counted there. Biden is currently leading in the Georgia vote count. Georgia's U.S. Senate races appear to be heading towards January run-offs that will now determine which party controls the Senate.

Despite the race being called in Biden's favor, President Trump has yet to concede the race, and he's vowed to contest it with claims that "illegal" votes were cast against him in manner that caused him to not emerge with the victory.
