Pennsylvania certifies Biden victory

Pennsylvania’s governor said Tuesday that officials certified the commonwealth’s election results showing Joe Biden won the presidential election in the state over President Trump.

Gov. Tom Wolf (D) tweeted that the Pennsylvania Department of State certified the election results and he “signed the Certificate of Ascertainment for the slate of electors for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris” as required by law.

The move cements Biden’s victory in the Keystone State, which now has officially awarded its 20 electoral votes to the former vice president. Biden’s projected win in Pennsylvania helped him top 270 electoral votes when the election was called for him just shy of three weeks ago.

The certification comes after officials in both Georgia and Michigan certified results showing Biden winning their respective Electoral College votes.

    This news has given me the best night’s sleep I’ve had in weeks. PA could have waited till litigation seeking to hold up certification was resolved, but the Secretary of State and the Governor wisely decided to certify anyway. There is still some outstanding litigation plus Trump’s anticipated Supreme Court appeal, but the experts don’t think any of that will be successful. Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States and Trump will be out.
