Re: Pro-Trump Riot in US Capital Building

Do we know when the next block of PA votes will be released in EST time? If Biden’s lead goes to 30-40k+ the networks will likely start calling it for Joe.

I don't think Biden can overtake Trump in PA, but Nevada should be his and I think Joe can come back to win GA.

Of course anything is still possible, this is 2020 after all!!
