Democrat Joe Biden has been declared the winner in both Pennsylvania and Nevada, eclipsing the 270 Electoral College votes threshold to become the projected winner of the presidential race and end President Donald Trump’s tenure after just one term.

Biden took the lead early Friday in both Georgia and Pennsylvania. The Associated Press called Pennsylvania for Biden on Saturday morning to give him enough electoral votes to win. He added Nevada shortly after that. Biden was on track to win the national popular vote by more than 4 million, a margin that could grow as ballots continue to be counted.

With Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes and the six from Nevada, Biden is now at 290, according to the AP. Trump is at 214.

Arizona, which the Associated Press called for Biden early Wednesday, is still counting votes and Trump has narrowed Biden’s lead, but the AP has not backed off its decision to assign that state’s 11 electoral votes to the Democrat.
