On the evening of Election Day, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) appeared on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” to say that he believed Democrat candidate Joe Biden would win the presidency “if every ballot is counted fairly.”
He didn’t say it would happen by the end of the day on Election Day.
“I’ve been standing at the polls this morning here in Delaware where I’m on the ballot as well, and we’re seeing record turnout,” he said. “There are 100 million folks who have already voted absentee or by mail, and there’s a dozen states where the counting begins today. It doesn’t end to today.”
“All those folks who are out there standing in line, those 100 million folks who’ve already voted, they deserve to have their ballots counted,” Coons said.
Wednesday night, several battleground states are still counting votes and although President Donald Trump leads in enough states to win the Electoral College, it is unclear whether Biden can make up the difference.
