Supporters of both candidates gathered outside the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia as Joe Biden took a lead over Donald Trump in the battleground state on Friday, November 6, local media reported.
About 96 percent of the votes in Pennsylvania were counted by 9:45 am on Friday, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Biden held a lead of 6,000 votes, reports said.
Trump earlier in the week had said his campaign “claimed” Pennsylvania “for Electoral Vote purposes.”

A #CountEveryVote: Block Party was organized in Philadelphia on Friday.
“The Trump campaign is continuing to try to stop our votes from being counted — but no one messes with our city,” event organizers said on Facebook. Credit: Kati Sipp via Storyful
