‘Under no scenario’ will Trump be declared winner on election night, says Biden’s campaign manager

On Monday, while speaking at a briefing on the Democratic presidential nominee’s potential paths to wining 270 Electoral College votes, Joe Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said “under no circumstances” will Trump be declared the victor on Election Night. 

“It was reported yesterday that President Trump believes that if he wins the East Coast battleground states, Florida, North Carolina, and Georgia, he plans to go out and declare victory,” O’Malley Dillon said Monday. “We want to be clear with you: If he tries to do that, that will not be true.”

She added, “Under no scenario will Donald Trump be declared a victor on election night.”

She also said that Biden has many more paths to victory than Trump does. For instance, she said that while Trump needs to win Florida in order to win the election, “we don’t need it to get to 270.”

“What Donald Trump is out there saying doesn’t live up to historical precedent or the facts,” O’Malley Dillon said. “We are well-positioned with multiple pathways to victory.”

This comes as polls in North Carolina, Florida, and other swing states are looking good for President Trump ahead of the November 3rd election.
