Joe Biden marches to victory in Virginia, notching swing-state win

5

Joe Biden has scored a Virginia victory, playing defense to keep the battleground state blue, according to Fox News.

The projected win reels in 13 electoral votes for the Democrat, with 270 the magic number to clinch the presidency.

Biden successfully played defense after the party’s previous candidate, Hillary Clinton, won the Old Dominion over then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.

Though Virginia often plays the role of swing state, most polls had Biden picking up where Clinton left off and handily carrying the state.

In a possible concession, President Trump largely avoided Virginia in the weeks preceding the election, aside from a last-minute Tuesday stop at the Republican National Committee’s headquarters in Arlington, in which he predicted “a great night.”
