Joe Biden wins Georgia, flipping the state for Democrats

Georgia hadn’t voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since Bill Clinton in 1992.

Joe Biden has won Georgia and its 16 electoral votes, an extraordinary victory for Democrats who pushed to expand their electoral map through the Sun Belt.

The win by Biden pads his Electoral College margin of victory over President Donald TrumpBiden was declared the winner of the presidential election on Nov. 7 after flipping Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin to the Democrats’ column.

Biden now has 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232.

Trump won Georgia by 5 percentage points in 2016 over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

In 2020, Democrats had focused heavily on the state, seeing it in play two years after Democrat Stacey Abrams narrowly lost the Governor’s race. Both of Georgia’s Senate seats were on the ballot this year, further boosting the state’s political profile as well as spending by outside groups seeking to influence voters. Those two races are headed to a January runoff.

    “God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne. When the enemy comes in like a flood, God sends an Army!! “The one who distorts right and wrong will suddenly fall! The one who lives with integrity will be helped.” I claim this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!!!!!
