Although the former vice president has not yet said what the speech will be about, his speech tonight could be a vote of confidence that he can soon win the 2020 election.
According to the Associated Press, Biden is on the verge of ousting President Donald Trump from victory with just six votes on Friday afternoon.
Biden currently leads in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Nevada as the counting of ballots continues in each of the contested states. Should he win one of these states, he would win the presidential elections.
The former vice president spent Friday at his home in Wilmington, Delaware while waiting for the remaining votes to be counted. Throughout the week he has urged his supporters to be patient and “keep the faith” while the ballots continue to be processed.
“Democracy is sometimes chaotic,” he said. “Sometimes it requires a little patience,” he said. But that patience has been rewarded for more than 240 years now with a system of government that the world envies us for”.
Outside the Wilmington convention center, a stage built for a Biden winning party since election night is still intact.
But the presidential race has not yet been declared.
In each of the states mentioned above, the outstanding ballots are still being counted, and more results are expected to arrive later this afternoon and evening.
By late Friday afternoon, according to the New York Times, about 92 percent of the votes were cast in Nevada, 96 percent of the votes in Pennsylvania and 98 percent in Georgia.
Washington Newsday turned to the Biden campaign for more information about his Friday night speech.
