 Joe Biden certified as winner of Pennsylvania US presidential vote

Democrat Joe Biden has been certified as winner of the presidential election in Pennsylvania, culminating three weeks of vote counting and a string of failed legal challenges by US President Donald Trump.

Democratic Governor Tom Wolf first disclosed in a tweet that the Department of State had certified the vote count for president and vice president.

Biden’s win in the state, giving him its haul of 20 electoral votes, put him over the 270 needed to clinch the presidency.

Wolf sent a “certificate of ascertainment” to the national archivist Washington with the slate of electors who support President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

Pennsylvania’s 20 electors, a mix of elected Democrats, party activists and other staunch Biden backers, will meet in the state Capitol on December 14.
