Joe Biden victory in sight

Dakota Gilbert / Cardinal Points Spectators watch election updates and results on key states such as Arizona and Georgia in the Angell College Center Thursday.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has positioned himself for a win in the 2020 presidential election with 253 electoral votes to President Donald Trump’s 213.

Trump’s lead in Pennsylvania, which could deliver Biden the White House, has been narrowing since Tuesday.

But Biden could also get to 270 electoral votes with wins in Nevada and Arizona, where he holds a lead as of Thursday night.

Biden also leads in Georgia, where a Democrat hasn’t won in a presidential race since Bill Clinton in 1992.

Trump’s path to reelection requires a win in Pennsylvania.

Elise Stefanik holds onto House seat

Fernando Alba / Cardinal Points Elise Stefanik poses for photos with supporters during a rally Oct. 10 at the US Oval.

Representative Elise Stefanik won a fourth term in the House of Representatives over Democratic challenger Tedra Cobb Tuesday.

Stefanik pulled more than $11 million dollars in donations for her fourth campaign in New York’s 21st congressional district, a benefit of her rising star as a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, especially during his impeachment hearings.

Despite being thought of as a tighter race potentially, Stefanik is poised to beat Cobb by a wider margin than their 2018 contest, where Stefanik won 56% of the vote.

Chris Rosenquest by 290 votes.

Republican Scott Beebie leads Democrat Chris Rosenquest by 290 votes as of Thursday night.

The race hangs in the balance as more than 2,500 absentee ballots, or about 30% of the votes, have yet to be counted. They are expected to be counted starting next week.

Chris Rosenquest beat current Mayor Colin Read in the Democratic primary in June.

Rosenquest expects the absentee votes to favor him.

“That’s why we’re hesitant to call or concede any election,” he told WAMC Northeast Public Radio.
