Biden urges patience: ‘It ain’t over till every vote is counted.’

WILMINGTON, Del. — Joseph R. Biden Jr. declared early Wednesday morning that he was “on track to win this election,” but urged patience while votes are tallied.

“It ain’t over till every vote is counted, every ballot is counted,” Mr. Biden said at a drive-in event in a parking lot in Wilmington adjacent to an event center. “But we’re feeling good. We’re feeling good about where we are.”

Mr. Biden spoke around 12:45 a.m. with his wife, Jill, at his side, projecting confidence about how he was faring in several critical battleground states.

“We’re feeling real good about Wisconsin and Michigan,” he said, naming two critical states in the Upper Midwest that President Trump is defending. He offered an unequivocal statement about another key state that Mr. Trump won: “We’re going to win Pennsylvania.”

Noting that it would take time to count the votes, he said: “It’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to declare who’s won this election. That’s the decision of the American people. But I’m optimistic about this outcome.”

Projecting confidence, Mr. Biden concluded: “Keep the faith, guys! We’re going to win this.”
