Biden has overtaken Trump’s lead in Georgia by 917 votes.

As of 4:50 a.m. Friday, Biden has 2,449,371 votes while Trump has 2,448,454, with 99% of the expected vote reporting.

It’s unclear exactly how many ballots are left to be counted in the Deep South state, where 16 Electoral College votes are up for grabs.

Voters in Georgia, once a reliable Republican stronghold, haven’t swung for a Democratic presidential candidate since Bill Clinton in 1992.

– Biden chips away at Trump’s lead in Pennsylvania

Biden continued to chip away at Trump’s lead in Pennsylvania early Friday morning, with the two candidates now separated by just 18,229 votes

As of 3 a.m. ET, Trump has 3,286,171 votes in the Keystone State while Biden has 3,267,942.

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.

Prior to that year, Pennsylvania had voted for Democratic presidential candidates in six consecutive elections.
