Eyes are on a handful of states where Biden appears to be pushing ahead of Trump.
The Trump campaign hosted a press conference in Pennsylvania Wednesday afternoon with Eric Trump, Trump 2020 senior adviser Lara Trump, Rudy Giuliani, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and campaign senior adviser Corey Lewandowski. The campaign has filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Michigan and has asked for a recount in Wisconsin.
The Associated Press, which this newspaper follows, has not called the battleground state of Pennsylvania. Also, Georgia, North Carolina and Nevada have not been declared for either candidate.
Eric Trump said a poll watcher in Philadelphia was made to observe from “40, 50 yards away” and was not able to see the counting. He accused Democrats of trying to cheat, however, he did not have evidence.
“We are going to win Pennsylvania but they are trying to cheat us out of it because they know it’s their only path to victory,” Trump said.
According to the Associated Press, there have been no reports of fraud or any type of ballot concerns out of Pennsylvania. The state had 3.1 million mail-in ballots that take time to count and an order allows them to be received and counted up until Friday if they are postmarked by Nov. 3.
Neither Biden nor Trump have reached the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the 2020 election.
