Joe Biden comes closer to President Donald Trump's lead as votes continue to be counted in Pennsylvania.

Election officials continued to count votes across the Keystone State. As of Friday night, Biden leads Trump by nearly 29,000 votes in Pennsylvania, with 99% of precincts reported.

Pennsylvania is the second state supporting Biden after the former vice president came closer to victory in Georgia. That has made him a more powerful nominee from the Democratic Party.

The media has not reported its winner in either state, and neither candidate has reached the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House.

In a Friday afternoon update, Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar reported that the overwhelming majority of mail-in and absentee ballots in Pennsylvania had been counted, and the process of counting provisional ballots has begun.

Secretary Boockvar said, "Pennsylvania counties have been incredibly hard at work canvassing all the ballots to provide accurate results as quickly as possible following best practices and responsibilities under state and federal law."

"We are very thankful to all the election officials working extremely long hours to make our democracy work and ensure that every qualified voter's vote is counted safely and securely."
