Pennsylvania certifies election in favor of Biden

3


Pennsylvania certified that President-elect Joe Biden won this year’s election in the state, after an onslaught of legal challenges from the Trump campaign and Republicans mostly failed.

Gov. Tom Wolf announced over Twitter that the Pennsylvania Department of State certified the results on Tuesday morning, exactly three weeks after the contentious Nov. 3 election, which President Trump is still contesting.

“As required by federal law, I’ve signed the Certificate of Ascertainment for the slate of electors for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” Wolf said. “I want to thank the election officials who have administered a fair and free election during an incredibly challenging time in our commonwealth and country’s history.

“Our election workers have been under constant attack and they have performed admirably and honorably,” he added.

The Pennsylvania certification is another loss for the Trump team and followed Georgia certifying its results on Friday. Michigan also certified its election results on Monday during a lengthy meeting of its State Board of Canvassers who were under intense pressure from Democrats to certify and from Republicans to hold off on doing so.
