As votes were being counted in the final few states in the United States presidential election yesterday morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, said Joe Biden’s electoral victory was “imminent.” She said Biden would soon no longer be referred to as the former vice president but “president-elect. It is a happy day for our country…because Joe is a unifier,” Pelosi said in a press conference held in the U.S. capitol.
Meanwhile, a top election official in the state of Georgia said he would expect a ballot recount in the battleground state.
“With a margin that small, there will be a recount in Georgia,” Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said.
President Trump had taken a strong early lead in the state that carries 16 electoral votes and has not voted for a Democrat for president since Bill Clinton in 1992.
