WILMINGTON (DELAWARE) – Democratic candidate Joe Biden has won the two crucial battleground states of Wisconsin and Michigan on Wednesday (Nov 4) afternoon, US networks projected, putting him closer to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency, although the race remained too close to call.
With Michigan’s 16 electoral votes and Wisconsin’s 10, Mr Biden now has a total of 264 – six shy of the 270 needed, according to US network projections.
President Donald Trump’s campaign said it would seek a recount in Wisconsin and file legal suits to stop the counting of votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia.
