Biden wins Georgia to solidify victory in US elections
Washington: United States (US) President-elect Joe Biden has taken the state of Georgia to solidify victory in presidential elections of 2020.

According to details, the democrat now has a total of 306 electoral votes, enough to secure presidency.

On the other hand, the republican Donald Trump is projected to win North Carolina, reaching 232 votes. Reportedly, there will be recounting in Georgia after which final results will be announced.

Trump, who has not yet conceded defeat, said that his party will eventually win.

In response, Biden said that Donald Trump's refusal to admit defeat in election is "an embarrassment".

"I just think it's an embarrassment, quite frankly," Mr Biden, a Democrat, said when asked about Trump’s refusal to concede defeat.

 “I think it will not help the president's legacy. At the end of the day, you know, it's all going to come to fruition on January 20," he said, speaking of inauguration day.

Democrat candidate Joe Biden has been elected as the 46th president of the US by beating Republican’s Donald Trump after a long and anxious wait for results.

In the historic election, Biden has become the oldest president-elect while Kamala Harris will be America’s first woman and first black to assume the vice presidency. They will take oath in January 2021.
