Pelosi confident Biden will win presidency

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday that Vice President Joe Biden would win the White House, repeatedly calling him “president-elect” as she discussed the Democratic Party’s agenda next year. “This morning, it is clear that the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris ticket will win the White House,” Pelosi said in her first press briefing since the Nov. 3 election.Pelosi spoke to reporters in the Capitol as thousands of votes were still being counted in battleground states. Biden gained the lead Friday morning in Pennsylvania, potentially clinching his path to victory, though Trump has made clear he will pursue legal challenges. Pelosi said the outcome was “imminent,” and could be declared “momentarily.” “It’s a happy day for our country,” Pelosi said, adding: “President-elect Biden has a strong mandate to lead.”
