Election 2020 live updates: Biden takes lead in count in Pennsylvania and Georgia, where recount is expected

Joe Biden overtook President Trump in the count in Pennsylvania just before 9 a.m. as the state’s Democratic-leaning counties reported additional vote count totals. The count is ongoing. But Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes would put Biden over the 270 votes needed even with a handful of other states still too close to call.

Biden also took a small lead in Georgia early Friday, though vote counting there is also not yet complete. The Georgia secretary of state there said Friday that there will be a recount given the tight margin.

In Arizona, former astronaut Mark Kelly, a Democrat, is projected to win the Senate seat currently held by Republican Martha McSally, who was appointed to the post after losing the 2018 election for Arizona’s other Senate seat.
