Biden clears 270-vote mark as electors affirm his victory

WASHINGTON (AP) — Joe Biden has cleared the 270-vote mark needed to win the presidency with California’s 55 electoral votes. The voting milestone came late Monday when California electors affirmed Biden’s massive 5 million-vote win last month in the nation’s largest state.

The Electoral College results will be sent to Washington and tallied in a January 6 joint session of Congress over which Vice President Mike Pence will preside.
