Four days after the country went to the polls for the Nov. 3 election, Joe Biden was declared winner of the race to the White House on Saturday morning.

The former vice president pushed past the 270 electoral votes needed to win after picking up Pennsylvania’s 20 electors, according to the Associated Press.

“America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country,” Biden tweeted Saturday. “The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the faith that you have placed in me.”

The president-elect’s running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, will make history as the first woman, the first Black person and the first person of Southeast Asian descent to become vice president.

“We did this—together,” Harris shared on Twitter.

During the long presidential campaign, Biden vowed change and regularly criticized President Donald Trump.

“We’re done with the chaos, we’re done with the tweets, the anger, the hate, the failure, the irresponsibility,” the Democratic nominee told supporters Monday night at a drive-in rally in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Joe Biden turns 78 later this month, making him the oldest president in U.S. history when he is inaugurated in January. The president-elect previously served as a U.S. senator and as former President Barack Obama’s VP.
