RACE FOR WHITE HOUSE CONTINUES
President Trump and Democratic challenger Joseph R. Biden were locked in a tight battle in the race for the White House as of early Wednesday, with votes still being counted in a handful of key states that have yet to be called.
Mr. Trump notched wins on Tuesday in key states such as Florida, Ohio and Texas, which Democrats had hoped to make more competitive this time around.
Mr. Biden held his ground in typically bluer states such as Minnesota, Virginia and Colorado.
Mr. Trump held slight leads in Michigan, North Carolina and Georgia, though votes in a good deal of Democratic-leaning areas were still to be counted. The president was leading in Pennsylvania by about 600,000 votes, or close to 12 points, with about 75% of the estimated votes reported.
In Pennsylvania, there are more than 1 million mail ballots remaining to be counted, Gov. Tom Wolf said. Mr. Trump held a lead of more than 600,000 in overall votes counted, or 12 points, with about 75% of the estimated votes reported.
But Mr. Biden was winning the absentee ballots by a margin of nearly four-to-one. . . .
Mr. Trump told his supporters at the White House early Wednesday that in his mind, he won the election and said he wants vote-counting to stop.
The president said he planned to petition the U.S. Supreme Court, though he didn’t provide additional details on what that would entail.
The Biden campaign said it’s prepared for any such legal challenges.
Mr. Trump has decried recent Supreme Court decisions that let stand lower court rulings allowing mail ballots to be counted in Pennsylvania and North Carolina as long as they’re received by Nov. 6 and Nov. 12, respectively.
