We are on track to win, says Joe Biden

Former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has said “We are on track to win”.

He has maintained his lead mid-way through the counting of votes, as Republican incumbent Donald Trump appeared to be fast catching up.

With electoral votes putting him ahead of US President Donald Trump, Democratic candidate Joe Biden Wednesday said he was optimistic of a win and thanked his supporters for their patience.

At 11 am IST, Biden had 223 votes against Trump’s 145. Shortly after the speech, Trump said accused the Biden campaign of “trying to steal the election”, and said he too would make a statement shortly.

“Your patience is commendable. We knew this would go long, but who knew it would go till tomorrow morning, or even longer. We feel good about where we are, we really do… We are on track to win this election,” Biden said, speaking in Delaware.
