As the ballots continue to be counted, there’ve been several counter protests by Biden and Trump supporters.

But in Pennsylvania the counting continues.

The Secretary of State in Pennsylvania, Kathy Bookvar says they could wrap up the count in Pennsylvania today ahead of schedule.

Meanwhile, this morning Mr. Biden is feeling confident he’ll secure the Presidency once every vote is counted.
