Former vice president Joe Biden wins democratic nomination to challenge Trump in the forthcoming presidential election.
Associated Press reported that Biden who took a commanding delegate lead in mid-March and after Vermont’s Senator Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race in early April, confirmed this in a statement released on Friday night.
The former Vice President under Barack Obama’s administration tweeted;
Folks, tonight we secured the 1,991 delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination. I’m going to spend every day fighting to earn your vote so that, together, we can win the battle for the soul of this nation. https://t.co/sl3wFGabpg

We are a nation in pain, but we must not allow this pain to destroy us. We are a nation enraged, but we cannot allow our rage to consume us. Please stay safe. Please take care of each other. https://t.co/Y224rANwUF
