Joe Biden has won the presidency by clinching Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes, the AP has just announced.

Biden’s electoral vote count now stands at 284, surpassing the 270 needed to win the White House.

Donald Trump has been defeated, and Biden will become the 46th president of the United States in January.

The call came after a new batch of ballots came in from Pennsylvania, pushing Biden’s lead in the state over 30,000 votes.

Some outlets, including CNN, have not yet called Arizona, so they currently show Biden’s electoral college vote count as 273.

But with or without Arizona, Biden has surpassed the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.

With Joe Biden’s victory, Kamala Harris will be the first woman and the first person of color to become vice president.

Harris is the fourth woman to be on a major party’s presidential ticket — after Geraldine Ferraro in 1984, Sarah Palin in 2008 and Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Harris is the first woman to be on a successful ticket. She will be sworn in as vice president in January.
