Biden takes lead over Trump in crucial state of Georgia

Joe Biden took the lead over President Trump in the crucial state of Georgia early Friday morning as votes continued to be counted for the presidential election.

Biden led Trump by 917 votes in the Peach State as the former vice president gained ground in several key swing states, giving him a path to a victorious 270 electoral votes.

Biden has been cutting into the president’s lead in the state since polls closed on Tuesday night and poll workers began counting mail-in votes, which have cut in Biden’s favor.

Neither Trump or Biden have reached enough electoral votes to be elected president. Several states — Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Georgia — have not been called.

Trump narrowed Biden’s lead in Arizona on Thursday night when a batch of mail-in ballots that favored the president were counted.

In Arizona, which Fox News and The Associated Press have called for Biden, Trump now trails Biden by some 56,800 votes.

In Pennsylvania, Trump’s lead had been trimmed down to less than 20,000 votes as Philadelphia continued to count their tallies.
