Biden has pulled ahead in Pennsylvania, overtaking Trump’s lead.
As of 8:50 a.m. ET Friday, Biden has 3,295,304 votes in the Keystone State — 49.4% — while Trump has 3,289,717 — 49.3% — with 95% of the expected vote reporting. That’s a difference of 5,587 votes.
There are roughly 135,000 ballots left to be counted, according to the latest data from the Pennsylvania Department of State. State law mandates an automatic recount if the final margin is .5% or less of total votes cast.
Trump flipped the blue state red on his path to the White House in 2016. He won Pennsylvania’s 20 Electoral College votes, defeating Hillary Clinton there by 44,292 ballots.
Before that year, Pennsylvania had voted for Democratic presidential candidates in six consecutive elections.
