The world’s eyes have been on Pennsylvania these past few days as its authorities have been counting millions of ballots since Election Day. There might be a light at the end of the tunnel, however.

Pennsylvania Sec. of State Kathy Boockvar told CNN’s Jake Tapper Thursday afternoon that most ballots are expected to be counted by the end of the day, although she didn’t offer a specific time of day.

“It is looking like we will have the overwhelming majority counted by today,” she told Tapper.

When asked by Tapper about how many ballots are remain to be counted, she placed her estimate in the range of 550,000 more ballots to be counted Thursday.

“I think there’s about 550,000 some-odd—you know, plus or minus—ballots that are still in the process of being counted today,” she said. “Some of those may have already been counted but are not yet uploaded.”

Later in the clip, she added that “it’s looking like we’re ahead of schedule and you know I’ve been saying that we’ll have the overwhelming majority by tomorrow, but it is looking like we’ll have the overwhelming majority counted by today.”

It is also worth noting that the Democratic-leaning Allegheny County, containing Pittsburgh, has paused its ballot-counting until Friday, The Hill has reported.

Incumbent President Donald Trump’s legal team has filed lawsuits in multiple swing states to halt the counting of ballots there and plan to take the case all the way up to the Supreme Court. One of these states is Pennsylvania, a must-win state for Trump if he is to successfully gain a second term. Trump is currently leading in the Keystone State, but the margin between him and former Vice President Joe Biden is still relatively close and is growing smaller as more ballots are counted.

Judges have dismissed lawsuits launched by the Trump legal team in Michigan and Georgia, according to NBC News 3 (WRCB) station in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The major news outlets have projected that Biden has won Michigan.

However, additional lawsuits have since been filed by Republicans and Trump in Michigan and Pennsylvania, per NBC News 3 regarding delaying the ballot-counting and allowing better access for Republican poll observers over accusations of voter fraud.

Only time will tell if these legal cases halt the vote-count before state election officials are able to potentially publish most of them by the end of today.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
