Biden launches transition website
Joe Biden on Wednesday launched a transition website, as he inched closer to the 270 electoral college votes
mark needed to oust Donald Trump from the White House.
Biden launches transition website, The “Biden-Harris Transition” website, featuring only a homepage topped
with an image of Mr Biden, went live utilizing the URL BuildBackBetter.com on Wednesday night.
Votes are still being counted in several states around the country.
“The crises facing the country are severe — from a pandemic to an economic recession, climate change
to racial injustice — and the transition team will continue preparing at full speed so that the Biden-Harris Administration can hit the ground running on Day One.
Both Biden and his Republican opponent and incumbent President, Donald Trump, still had paths to
winning the White House by hitting the magic majority threshold of 270 of the electoral votes awarded
to whichever candidate wins the popular vote in a given state.
But momentum moved to Biden, who made a televised speech from his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware
to say that “when the count is finished, we believe we will be the winners.”
