Women for Biden-Harris: Nov. 5

3 mins read

Good morning!

“Patience is a virtue.”

Yesterday was a long but good day for our side.  Wisconsin and Michigan were both called for our campaign and put us that much closer to victory. Arizona and Nevada are looking very good for us and counting will likely complete tonight or early morning giving us the electoral path to victory. That leaves Pennsylvania, which is still diligently counting just under 1M mail-votes in spite of legal threats from the Trump campaign. We believe we will win PA, which alone would give us the electoral victory. Other outstanding states include NC, which will likely go to Trump, and GA, which is still counting and a toss-up. The key takeaway is that the math is on our side and while nothing is guaranteed, we have multiple pathways to victory.

What we already know is that our ticket will receive the most votes in presidential election history. That we achieved this in the midst of a pandemic — with a postal service that has intentionally degraded our mail service —  is remarkable. Throughout this process, Joe’s message has remained the same. Count all the votes and declare a rightful winner. During this window of uncertainty, our mission is especially important. Let’s follow Joe and Kamala’s example and keep calm.

We will have our answer soon.
