BREAKING: Multiple networks call Pennsylvania and the entire race for Biden; Trump campaign defiant, promises further challenges

 As the counting neared conclusion in Pennsylvania on Saturday, multiple outlets called the Keystone State for former Vice President and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, pushing him over the threshold for 270 electoral votes, according to media estimates.

At the end of the final initial canvass of votes, Biden held a lead over Trump in the Keystone State of 34,414 votes, with a total of 3,345,724 votes for Biden to 3,311,310 votes for Trump. There remain an additional estimated 76,000 potential votes outstanding; however, these ballots would not be sufficient to overcome Biden's lead in the state.

The Trump campaign has promised legal challenges in Pennsylvania, as well as, both Michigan and Wisconsin, which Trump initially led in the early stages of counting. However, as early and mail-in votes began to be counted, Biden ultimately overtook Trump by narrow margins in both states.

At the time of publication of this article, a final winner had not yet been declared in the swing states of Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, and Nevada; however, even if Trump wins all those contests, Biden will still have the requisite number of votes to obtain the presidency, if the media calls for the current contest are correct.
