It's official, President-elect Joe Biden won the state of Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes. It's declared and certified and everything. Gov. Tom Wolf announced Tuesday morning that the secretary of state has certified the results.
“Today @PAStateDept certified the results of the November 3 election in Pennsylvania for president and vice president of the United States,” Wolf tweeted. “As required by federal law, I’ve signed the Certificate of Ascertainment for the slate of electors for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.” He also acknowledged the difficulty election clerks faced in the post-election madness from Trump and his supporters. "Again, I want to thank the election officials who have administered a fair and free election during an incredibly challenging time in our commonwealth and country’s history," Wolf added. "Our election workers have been under constant attack and they have performed admirably and honorably."
Sen. Bob Casey also celebrated the win. For real.
Just to put a cherry on top of it all, Arizona's Republican Gov. Doug Ducey admitted for the first time publicly, out loud, that "Joe Biden did win Arizona." The last Arizona county unanimously certified the results Monday. That county is Mohave, and its board of supervisors is completely Republican. Arizona Republicans are apparently reality-based, which is good to know. This clears the way for Secretary of State Katie Hobbs to certify the results on Nov. 30, and Ducey isn't going to be getting in the way.
With Pennsylvania declared, Trump has absolutely no path electorally. With his “elite strike force” legal team he has absolutely no path in the courts. He’s toast. But we can keep celebrating certifications for another week!
