Democratic challenger Joe Biden urged his supporters to “keep the faith” amid slow results from a slate of battleground states in the presidential election, saying he believed he was on track to defeat President Donald Trump when all the votes are counted.
“We knew this was going to go long, but who knew we were going to go into tomorrow morning, maybe even longer,” Biden said in Delaware. “We feel good about where we are, we really do. I’m here to tell you tonight, we believe we’re on track to win this election.”
Results in several pivotal battleground states, namely Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, have been slow to arrive, with election officials saying the crush of mail-in ballots will take time to count. Georgia also said late in the evening it did not think it would have full results until at least Wednesday.
