Biden’s projected presidential victory comes 48 years to the day of first Senate win

From CNN’s Leinz Vales

As Americans across the United States prepare to watch President-elect Joe Biden’s victory speech, CNN’s Arlette Saenz highlighted the significance of the day he was projected the winner.

“It was 48 years ago today that Joe Biden first won his Senate seat here in Delaware and now 48 years later he’s heading to the White House,” Saenz said at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware.

Some background: Biden, who was Delaware’s longest serving senator, was elected to office in 1972. He was first elected to the Senate at age 29, defeating Republican Sen. J. Caleb Boggs and would win reelection in 1978, 1984, 1990, 1996 and 2002.

Democratic candidate in runoff race says he’s confident Georgia will solidify “its status as a blue state”

From CNN’s Leinz Vales

On the night of Joe Biden’s projected victory over President Trump, Democrat Senate candidate Raphael Warnock said he’s confident that the President-elect will win Georgia and he will win his runoff with Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

“There is no question that Georgia is well on its way to solidifying its status as a blue state,” Warnock told CNN’s Erin Burnett. “We’ve been working on this for years. The other side knows it. That’s why they’ve been engaged for voter suppression for so long. We saw record voter turnout. 1.8 million Democrats showed up and showed out more than ever and we saw it again in this election. And I think our side is going to be very energized to show up for the January 5th.”

Warnock, who is a reverend and leader of Atlanta’s historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, said his campaign website has received an uptick in internet traffic since Election Day.

“My campaign is fueled by ordinary people because that is who I’m standing up for,” Warnock said.

Georgia’s other Senate runoff race will be between Republican Sen. David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff

President-elect Joe Biden spent the majority of his time at home today with his family – taking in the moment they’ve worked for together for years.

In fact, it was his grandchildren who were the ones who informed him that the race was called in his favor, a source on the campaign says.

This photo posted by his oldest granddaughter Naomi was taken shortly after he learned he was now President-elect:

Biden’s central message tonight will be one of unity

From CNN’s Arlette Saenz

When he addresses the nation for the first time as President-elect, Joe Biden’s central message will be one of unity, advisers say.

His remarks thematically draw from the final major speeches from his campaign – in Gettysburg and Warm Springs, Georgia, advisers say, as he urges Americans to come together and promises to be a president for all Americans.

His speech has been written for some time, but adjustments have been made as the week has progressed.

Here’s what one of Biden’s first actions as President will be, Democratic senator says

From CNN’s Adrienne Vogt

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar speaks with CNN on November 7.

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar said that President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will work on building a “big coalition” to unite Democratic and GOP lawmakers.

“I was buoyed by people like Mitt Romney and some of the Republicans who are coming out and making very clear they believe in our democracy. And I think that’s going to be really important when the celebrating ends, that the hard work begins. And that’s going to be my point when I do talk to Joe and Kamala in person … They’re going to have to build a big coalition and I am ready to help,” she said.

Biden has not reached out to her about a possible position in his Cabinet, the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said.

Klobuchar said Biden has told her that will reach across the aisle to bring Democrats and Republicans together.

“One of the first things he’s going to do in these next few weeks will be calling Democratic and Republican governors, calling Democratic and Republican members of Congress to start talking about what he needs to do and getting advice on things. That’s what he does. I don’t think you saw Donald Trump doing a lot of that. You’re going to see Joe Biden doing a lot of that,” she said.

Biden will “seize, yes, the celebration today but also the hard work of governing,” she added. “We can’t wait anymore to do something about the pandemic and the economy — and to do something about climate change and immigration reform — he knows that.”

Klobuchar also spoke about Sen. Kamala Harris becoming America’s first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president-elect.

“Kamala, of course, as she has said, stands on the shoulders of so many, including Geraldine Ferraro and including Shirley Chisholm and… certainly Hillary Clinton have made this attempt before. … I can’t wait to see her tonight and mostly [to] see her lead,” Klobuchar said.

As cities across the United States erupt in celebration after the projected victory of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, a physician in New York City told CNN’s Polo Sandoval that she’s “thrilled” to have a leader who will take the coronavirus pandemic seriously.

“I’m a pediatrician and can I not tell you, I’m not a single-issue voter, but the pandemic, I mean, just seeing how this pandemic ravaged our city, I am so thrilled that we’re going to have a leader who is going to take this pandemic and do what needs to be done — what needs to be done in the city and in the country so that we can get it under control,” she said.

What we know: Biden plans to announce his 12-person coronavirus task force on Monday, two sources with knowledge told CNN.

The task force will reportedly be lead by three cochairs: Former Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner David Kessler and Yale University’s Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith.

Here’s a timeline of what will happen between now and Inauguration Day

Analysis by Zachary B. Wolf and Will Mullery

We’ve sketched out the legal mechanisms that lead from Election Day to Inauguration Day.

Here’s a timeline of what happens after Election Day:

  • Nov. 3: While many millions of Americans cast their ballots in the weeks leading up to Election Day, either by mail or as an in-person absentee voter, US law says Election Day occurs on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. Votes were counted across the country on Election Day.
  • Nov. 4 — 23: Mail-in ballots had to be postmarked by Nov. 3 in every US state, but they can be received late and still counted in many states.
  • Nov. 10 – Dec. 11: States certify election results.
  • Dec. 8: Under the Electoral Count Act, this is the date by which states are meant to have counted votes, settled disputes, and determined the winner of their electoral college votes. Governors are supposed to create certificates of ascertainment listing the winner of the election and the slate of electors.
  • Dec. 14: Electoral votes are cast. In law this date is the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December. This year it falls on Dec. 14.
  • Dec. 23: The electoral votes must arrive in Washington. The certified electoral votes have nine days to get from their states to Capitol Hill.
  • Jan. 3: Members of the House and new members of the Senate take the oath of office at noon. This is the official start of the 117th Congress.
  • Jan. 6: Members of the House and the Senate all meet in the House chamber. The President of the Senate (that’s Vice President Mike Pence) presides over the session and the Electoral votes are read and counted in alphabetical order by two appointees each from the House and Senate. They then give their tallies to Pence, who announces the results and listens for objections. There are 538 electoral votes — one for each congressman and senator plus three for Washington, DC. If no candidate gets 270, the 435 members of the House decide the election. The House has until noon on January 20 to pick the President. If they can’t, it would be the vice president or the next person eligible in the line of presidential succession.
  • Jan. 20: A new president takes the oath of office at noon on Inauguration Day.

Emerson College student journalist Andrew Brinker captured the mood as crowds sang “We Are the Champions” at Boylston and Charles streets in Boston.

“A lot of people saying they’re feeling relief after the last four years,” Brinker wrote to CNN. “Tons of young people in this crowd. At one point we had at least 1,000 people here. Also to note, lots of folks saying they don’t have to worry now about having a president that’s attacking their fundamental human rights.”

How Biden’s popular vote margin has grown

From CNN’s Jennifer Agiesta

If you want to put some numbers around how Joe Biden’s popular vote margin is growing, here’s an interesting way to slice it. As of 6 a.m., Wednesday, the national popular vote looked like this:

  • Biden: 68,084,882 votes, 50.1%
  • Trump: 65,634,738 votes, 48.3%

Everything that has been counted since 6 a.m., Wednesday looks like this:

  • Biden: 6,414,007 votes, 55.4%
  • Trump: 4,709,002 votes, 40.6%

That’s with about 147 million votes cast, so there are likely around 10 million more to count.

Harris is America’s first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president-elect.

The cars have started to arrive in the parking lot of the Chase Center for the biggest show in Wilmington, Delaware, tonight: A drive-in rally for the victory rally for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

“Welcome, welcome,” an advance staffer in a blue Biden-Harris mask, said to the first few cars. “Thank you for being here!”

It’s a hometown crowd, with longtime supporters and top contributors given preference. But most people were urged to watch from home, given the pandemic.

Biden is expected to deliver a call for unity in the face of the nation’s challenges. But there will be fireworks. A truck filled with the festive explosives has been parked all week at a neighboring baseball field. A light show from drones is also expected. And a confetti cannon, aides say.

The show is scheduled to begin around 8 p.m. ET.

Meanwhile, Biden’s eldest granddaughter Naomi Biden tweeted a photo showing the President-elect being embraced by his family. The caption reads “11.07.20.”

Here’s what could happen to Kamala Harris’ Senate seat

With Kamala Harris projected to be the next vice president-elect of the United States, her Senate seat will soon become vacant.

Here’s what it means for the Senate and the state of California:

Under California law, Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom would have the sole power to appoint a replacement for Harris. That appointee would serve until 2022, when Harris’ term expires — at which point he or she would have to run for a full term in their own right.

CNN’s Chris Cillizza looked at the potential candidates who could replace Harris. Here’s the list he came up with:

  • Rep. Karen Bass
  • Attorney General Xavier Becerra
  • San Francisco Mayor London Breed
  • Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti
  • Lt. Governor Eleni Kounalakis
  • Secretary of State Alex Padilla
  • Rep. Katie Porter
  • Rep. Adam Schiff

DACA recipient calls Biden’s victory a moment of “hope”

Ambar Pinto, a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program recipient, celebrated Joe Biden’s victory with scores of others in Washington, DC, this afternoon.

“It’s a moment of a lot of emotion and a lot of hope,” Pinto told CNN. “We took Trump out of office and now there’s hope and a future for immigrants.”

Some context: In early August, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told lawmakers he stands by the Trump administration decision to limit the DACA program following the Supreme Court’s decision in June.

“In no way did the Supreme Court decision tell the department to process new DACA applicants,” Wolf told the Senate Homeland Security Committee. Legal experts have opposed that argument, saying that the decision allowed for new applicants and a Maryland judge eventually directed the administration to take new applications.

In July, Wolf issued a memo saying that new applications for DACA, the Obama-era program that shields certain undocumented immigrants from deportation, would not be accepted and renewals would be limited to one year instead of two amid an ongoing review.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders congratulated President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their win today.

This election “was about whether or not we remain a country that believes in the Constitution, that believes in the rule of law and that believes in democracy,” the former Democratic presidential candidate said to CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “And thank God, democracy won out. So I just wish Joe and Kamala the very, very best in leading our country.”

Sanders said Biden’s challenge will be bringing Americans together.

“I don’t envy Joe Biden in terms of the enormous, enormous challenges he faces, including systemic racism, including climate change, a crumbling infrastructure, you name it. That’s what he’s going to have to deal with. And our job right now is to bring people together, it seems to me, around an agenda that works for all people,” Sanders said.

“The challenge is to reach out to people and say, ‘we hear your pain’ … Now it’s time for working people to be heard and for their pain to be addressed,” Sanders added.

Biden has a “very strong mandate” to implement a progressive agenda around issues like immigration, the minimum wage and health care, Sanders said.

“If you look at this country issue by issue, and what the American people want, they want an agenda that stands up for them, for working families — Black, White and Latino. That’s the agenda they want, and they want Congress to have the courage to take on the powers that be,” Sanders said.
