Biden set to speak shortly on election results

Democrat Joe Biden will speak shortly on the US election results, as many of his key states remain too close to call.

The Biden campaign gathers the press pool that covers him in Wilmington, Delaware, for an early morning statement but offers no further guidance.

Biden has spent the night watching the returns come in from his home, while reporters waited near the Chase Center in downtown Wilmington for potential remarks.

Biden began his day yesterday with a handful of campaign stops across the all-important state of Pennsylvania as voters went to the polls.

Hours after the polls have closed across America, however, the result of the presidential election remains unclear. A number of key states still have hundreds of thousands of ballots outstanding, after a large influx of mail ballots have slowed down the count in states across the nation.
