Washington, November 13
President-elect Joe Biden has narrowly won Arizona, major US media outlets projected on Friday, capturing the state’s 11 electoral votes and consolidating his lead over his Republican rival and incumbent US President Donald Trump.
The state’s 11 Electoral College votes bring 77-year-old Biden’s lead to 290-217 and put further pressure on Trump, who has yet to concede the election held on November 3. — PTI
