On Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were announced as the winners of the 2020 U.S. Presidential/Vice Presidential election. Although, as of Sunday, Nov. 8, Georgia and North Carolina have not called their elections, Pennsylvania and Nevada did, giving Biden 290 of the 270 needed electoral votes.

 “We did it. We did it, Joe. You’re going to be the next President of the United States,” Harris said to Biden through smiles and laughter on the phone; a video of the call was posted to Twitter.

 

With the win, Harris will be making history by becoming the first woman Vice President and the first woman of color Vice President.

“While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last, because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities,” Harris said in a Saturday night address with Biden.

 Biden, at the same address, kept with his message of healing and unity. “It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again […]” he said during his portion of the drive-in victory rally.

 Despite many from his own administration and even the First Lady, Melania Trump, advising him to concede, Donald Trump has yet to admit defeat. He did get a game of golf in on Saturday morning, though.
