Joe Biden is knocking on the doors of becoming the President-Elect, but the count has not been finalized yet.

Pool is loaded and the press van is leaving the Chase Center complex at 9:14 p.m.

While we waited, around 8:15 p.m., Sen. Chris Coons and Rep. Cedric Richmond entered the Westin, with a larger entourage. 

After sitting down for an interview, Sen. Coons gaggled with reporters. “Bob Casey just texted me,” he said. “I don’t think we’re going to get a call out of Pennsylvania until tomorrow.”

“I have not spoken directly to the Vice President,” he also said. “I think the folks around him are staying calm and being appropriate respecting voters and respecting the process.”

The press van pulled in near the Biden residence at 9:35 p.m. We’ll be holding here until the motorcade departs. 

The press van was able to see the Chase Center set-up – with Biden-Harris projected on the side of the Westin and the giant flag held up by cranes – from the highway en route.
