Nancy Pelosi Says Joe Biden Will Win Electoral College in 'Historic' Election

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will garner enough votes in US presidential election to carry the electoral college in a letter to House Democrats.

Iran Press/America: "Joe Biden's election will be historic, propelled by the votes of a record-shattering 70 million Americans—the most votes ever received by a presidential ticket in American history," Pelosi wrote.
Pelosi said that meanwhile, a final tally of votes may not be available for days as some states continue to count mail-in and absentee ballots.

Pelosi said in her Wednesday letter that Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris had made it clear that the Democratic ticket would have enough electoral votes to win the presidency.

"We must remain patient as votes are tallied and races are called," Pelosi continued, "and we must remain absolutely committed to ensuring that every American voter has a say in their democracy."

The Associated Press reported that Biden had obtained 264 electoral votes to President Donald Trump's 214. A candidate must achieve 270 electoral votes to be declared president. Six states have yet to report a final voting result. The Trump administration has promised to legally challenge the results in some states.
