Pennsylvania declares Joe Biden the winner, authorises election results
- Governer Wolf shared that he has signed the certificate of ascertainment for Biden and Harris
- The certification comes in the heels of GSA's letter to Biden to initiate transition
- Wolf thanked the administration for conducting a fair election
Amid a lot of hue and cry around the ownership of power in the swing states of the US, governor of Pennsylvania Tom Wolf on Tuesday announced the victory of President-elect Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris in the state.
Governer Wolf took to the micro blogging site Twitter to share that he has signed the certificate of ascertainment for the slate of electors for Biden and Harris.
"Today @PAStateDept certified the results of the November 3 election in Pennsylvania for president and vice president of the United States. As required by federal law, I’ve signed the Certificate of Ascertainment for the slate of electors for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” he tweeted.
He then went on to thank the administration and election conducting bodies for facilitating the procedure of a fair election amid the times of crisis with on going coronavirus pandemic.
"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. Our election workers have been under constant attack and they have performed admirably and honorably," Wolf further wrote on twitter
The reported certification of Pennsylvania election results comes in the heels of General Service Administration's letter to make all the necessary accesses available for the process of transition.
Meanwhile, incumbent Donald Trump on Monday came his closest to admitting presidential election defeat by taking to Twitter that it was time for the General Services Administration to "do what needs to be done."
However, in the same tweet, he insisted that he was still refusing to concede, saying: "Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail!"
