Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), on Thursday afternoon received briefings in Wilmington, Delaware on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the state of the economy, according to a campaign official.
“These are the regular public health and economic briefings the vice president has received since March,” said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about Biden’s schedule.
Joe Biden waved to a group of supporters as he arrived at Wilmington’s Queen Theater for the briefings. But reporters were kept about 50 feet away, and the former vice president did not stop to take any questions.
Earlier in the day, Biden and Harris campaign officials told reporters Joe Biden will sweep to victory in a trio of states where votes are still being counted to become the next president of the United States.
“Our data shows that Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States,” campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said.
“Because he sees the same data we do and knows he’s losing, Donald Trump continues to push a flailing strategy designed to prevent people’s votes from being counted,” she went on.
Joe Biden currently leads President Trump in the Electoral College by 253-214. The number of electoral votes needed to clinch victory is 270. There is no winner yet.
The final four battleground states where votes are still being counted are Pennsylvania, Georgia, North Carolina, and Nevada.
