Biden builds momentum with lead in Georgia

Joe Biden has taken the lead in Georgia, but there’s another key contest on the east coast still very much at stake – Pennsylvania.

As things stand Donald Trump is leading his Democratic challenger by about 20,000 votes in the Keystone State. That advantage has been shrinking as mail-in and absentee ballots come in, in particular from around the city of Philadelphia.

The city’s commissioner Al Schmidt has told CNN to expect another update on the count “in the next hour or two”.

“The counting in Philadelphia has continued uninterrupted from the beginning. We had a brief pause yesterday for about two hours as a result of some litigation, but it’s just critically important that we continue counting every eligible vote cast by voters in Philadelphia,” he said.

He added that observers from both the Republican and Democratic parties have been watching the count “the entire time”.

President Trump’s campaign filed a lawsuit to stop the count and demanded more scrutiny of the process, a suit the state’s supreme court rejected on Thursday.
