11:26 — NBC calls it. So does CNN.
BREAKING: NBC NEWS PROJECTS JOE BIDEN HAS WON THE ELECTION. JOE BIDEN IS THE PRESIDENT-ELECT.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) November 7, 2020
11:23 — Trump’s lead crossed the 30,000 mark.
11:05 — 40,000 more votes comes in to AZ. Trump trending right below where he needs to. Steve Kornacki seems to suggest that Trump may get the deficit down to 10,000, but won’t be able to flip it red.
9:45 — Good morning. I don’t know any more than the rest of you do, which is to say — as it stands — Biden has a sizable lead in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Nevada, and a small lead in Georgia. Mathematically speaking, Donald Trump has been eliminated from the race. The networks, however, have not yet called it, probably because of all the thirst posts John King and Steve Kornacki are generating (serious question, because I do not normally watch cable news: What does Steve Kornacki when he’s not the election map guy?).
Anyway, the news of the day, so far, is that Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has Covid, Matt Gaetz has COVID, 6 other White House staffers have COVID, and 123,000 people tested positive for COVID. Donald Trump is going to play golf today, but he’s also tweeting this morning:

But here’s my favorite thing all morning: Trump’s legal team has thrown together a slap-dash press conference, which was supposed to be at the Four Seasons hotel, I guess (the original announcement said Four Season Hotel), but it appears that someone booked the wrong place. They booked — I kid you not — Four Seasons Total Landscaping.
Trump this morning tweeted his lawyers would hold a news conference at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia, deleted it, then reissued it specifying it’s at Four Seasons Total Landscaping (apparently not a hotel)— Josh Lederman (@JoshNBCNews) November 7, 2020
