"After four long tense days, we've reached a historic moment in this election. We can now project the winner of the presidential race. CNN projects Joseph R. Biden Jr. is elected the 46th president of the United States, winning the White House and denying President Trump a second term," Blitzer said. "We're able to make this projection because CNN projects Biden wins Pennsylvania."
