Networks call Georgia for Biden; Trump winner in North Carolina


Presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden is the winner in Georgia, two networks projected Friday, while President Trump was declared the winner in North Carolina.

All states now have been called, although the Trump campaign is contesting the results in several states where the margins were close.

ABC News and NBC News declared the Democrat flipped Georgia and its 16 electoral votes. The decision came 10 days after Election Day, with a statewide hand recount looming.
