There is still no clear winner in the U.S. presidential election, but there is a new development.
Early Friday morning, the battleground state of Georgia flipped, giving Democratic Challenger Joe Biden a slight lead over Incumbent Republican Donald Trump.
The contest is still too early for The Associated Press to call with thousands of ballots are still left to be counted.
Thursday evening, Donald Trump used a nationally broadcast address from the White House to bash the November 3rd Election that may end up costing him his job.
He claimed, without evidence, Democrats are trying to “steal” the presidency from him and that the decision will ultimately have to go to the courts.
The major U.S. television networks all cut away from Trump’s address, after he had spewed a number of baseless fraud claims.
Earlier Thursday, judges in Georgia and Michigan dismissed Trump campaign lawsuits.
Joe Biden meantime, continues to ask for everyone to be patient until every vote is counted.
Results are still undecided in the key states of Nevada, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Alaska.
Pennsylvania is worth 20 electoral college votes; must-haves for Donald Trump if he is going to win re-election.
As of this writing Friday at 7:30 a.m., Biden has 264 electoral college votes to Trump’s 214, with 270 needed to win The White House.
