Speaking just before 1am ET at a drive-in rally in Delaware, Joe Biden gave an upbeat message, but emphasized that the vote count is still going on and there is a lot we do not know. “We feel good where we are, we really do. I’m here tonight to tell you that we are on the right track to win this election, ”he said.
Commenting on the length of the counting process, Biden said, “We knew from the unprecedented early voting, the mail-in voting, that it would take a while. We have to be patient. ”
When Biden found that Minnesota had just been called in for him, he said his campaign was optimistic about Arizona and “still in the game for Georgia”. He also said he was “feeling good in Wisconsin and Michigan. By the way, it will take time for the votes to be counted – we are going to win Pennsylvania. “
Biden emphasized the patience and the importance of counting the votes: “We could know the results tomorrow morning, but it may take a little longer. As I have been saying all along, it is not my place or Donald Trump’s place to explain who won this election. That is the choice of the American people. But I am optimistic about this result. “
