WASHINGTON, D.C. — Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden is the projected winner of the 2020 election.

Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen said, “”The American people have spoken, and they have overwhelmingly chosen Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to lead our nation.”

The popular vote estimates show the Biden/Harris ticket leading 50% to 40%.

Senator Ben Cardin, also a Democrat, released this statement, “American voters have selected their next president by casting ballots in unprecedented numbers, even during a pandemic.”

Republican Governor Larry Hogan, who made headlines by choosing to write in Ronald Reagan instead of voting for Donald Trump, said, “Congratulations to President-elect Biden. Everyone should want our president to succeed because we need our country to succeed. We have great challenges ahead of us as a country. Now more than ever, we need to come together as Americans.”

However, President Trump and his legal team have said they plan to challenge the election results.
