Former Vice President Joe Biden urged patience early Wednesday morning amid uncertainty about the outcome of the presidential election.
“We knew this was going to go long,” Biden said.
Biden spoke at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware surrounded by supporters honking car horns with results still unclear in several battleground states. It could take days to get final totals from Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, which are likely to determine who wins the presidency.
Biden stressed the surge in early voting because of the coronavirus, which was expected to lean heavily Democratic, would slow down results in some states.
“It ain’t over until every ballot is counted,” he said.
Biden voiced optimism about Michigan and Wisconsin and outright predicted victory in Pennsylvania.
“It’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to declare who won this election,” he said.
