Race To The White House Through Battleground States
WASHINGTON, D.C. — As Election Day stretched into election week, election workers count ballots around the clock. The fight for the White House – centered in battleground states.
“The closer the race is, the longer it takes,” Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar said. “It’s very close in Pennsylvania.”
The margins between votes vast for President Donald Trump and his challenger Joe Biden are razor thin. But as states log more absentee and mail-in ballots, President Trump is seeing the path to his re-election narrow.
“We think we will win this election very easily,” President Trump said. “We were winning in all the key locations by a lot, actually, and then our numbers started miraculously getting whittled away in secret.”
The President and his team mounting legal challenges in several states demanding recounts and making claims of voter fraud without offering evidence.
“If you count the legal votes, I easily win,” President Trump said.
Biden, leading in the popular vote, is projecting confidence in the consequential electoral college count. But while the race is too close to call, Biden asks supporters to stay calm and trust the system.
“We have no doubt that when the count is finished Senator Harris and I will be declared the winners,” Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden said.
