Biden takes lead in key Florida battleground

Joe Biden has taken the lead in Florida, with 37% of votes counted.

Biden leads 52% to 48% in the key battleground state, carrying the urban areas around Tampa.

The state is seen as a key bellwether for how the vote will go, because it will release its mail-in and early votes along with Election Day tallies.

If Biden can carry the state, he is expected to win the presidency. Without it, he will still have a chance, but will face an uphill battle, according to projections.
