U.S Election: Joe Biden Takes The Lead in Georgia And Piles Up The Votes...

Joe Biden is on the cusp of declaring victory after taking the lead in the state of Georgia early on Friday morning, while Donald Trump clings to a narrow lead in other swing states that are still counting votes. 

Biden overhauled Trump's lead in the early hours of Friday as mail-in ballots were counted, leaping ahead by 917 votes with the count trending in his favor and less than 10,000 votes left to count. 

If the Democrat takes Georgia, then he only needs to hold his lead in either Nevada or Arizona - where he is currently ahead by 11,000 votes and 46,000 votes respectively - to be declared the winner. Results in both states are expected later today.
