Listen to “Rep. Andy Biggs: Don't be surprised if this election goes to the SCOTUS” on Spreaker.

Pennsylvania’s chief election official has suggested that the “overwhelming majority of ballots” have already been counted but that more need to be tallied in order to get a clearer sense of who the winner in the state is.

Kathy Boockvar, the Pennsylvania Sec. of State, elaborated on the progress made with the vote count so far at a late Thursday afternoon press conference in Harrisburg, saying that: “We’re coming in the home stretch here.”

“What’s happening now is having enough ballots counted to actually see who the winner is,” she said, adding, “the farther apart [the margin] is, the easier it is to tell.”

“So, it’s very close in Pennsylvania,” Boockvar continued, “there’s no question. And so that means it’s going to take longer to actually see who the winner is. But I can tell you that there are several hundred thousand ballots remaining to be counted. You can track all that—what counties it remains in—look at our website and you’ll be able to see how we get to the conclusion.”

As for when she believes some results will be revealed, while also emphasizing that the full election results won’t be officially certified until 20 days after the election, she says their ahead of schedule.

“What I’ve said all along is that the overwhelming majority of ballots will be counted by Friday,” she said.

Continuing, she said, “I still think that we are ahead of schedule—” but then she corrected herself and added that “we actually already have counted the overwhelming majority of ballots, but, because it’s a close race, it’s not quite clear yet who the winner is.”

At the time of publication, President Trump has a slight lead over former Vice President Joe Biden, but Biden is closing the gap between them as more ballots are counted.

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.”
