Of course we hoped that Joe Biden would win in such a landslide that the evening would end with the outcome clear, even as counting continued. That is not the case. But as stressful as this is, continued vote counting is not a sign that anything is wrong. The waiting sucks, though. Election night is ending without a clear winner in the presidential race—an outcome we’d hoped to avoid, but knew was a strong possibility. The massive increase in mail ballots combined with laws in some states that prevented those mail ballots being processed ahead of time means that some key states are—as predicted—still counting, and may be counting for days.Arizona’s vote counting has slowed to a crawl. Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan all have large numbers of mail ballots to count, a process that could take days in some cases. Atlanta and its suburbs have significant numbers of votes to be counted, again, not until later Wednesday morning at the earliest. – Advertisement – – Advertisement –

ABC NewsBy LIBBY CATHEY, ABC News (MILWAUKEE) — Former President Barack Obama will close out Day 3 of the Democratic National Convention Wednesday, after Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., accepts the party’s nomination for vice president — making official her place in history as the first Black woman and first person of Indian descent to be nominated for national office by a major political party.Under Democrats’ theme of “A More Perfect Union,” Harris will deliver remarks from the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware, the same venue former Vice President Joe Biden is slated to use for his acceptance speech on Thursday, effectively kicking off their fall campaign to the White House.“America is not going back to where it was before Donald Trump’s mismanagement of the pandemic and subsequent economic crisis, because for too many people, that wasn’t good enough. As he leads us out of crisis, Joe Biden will help build back better,” the Democratic National Convention Committee said in a release on Wednesday’s program. “He will have a historic partner in these efforts: the first female vice president.”Harris, California’s junior senator who at age 55 is more than 20 years younger than her 77-year-old running mate, offers the prospect of energizing younger and more progressive voters who have lamented Biden as the nominee.Wednesday’s primetime programming also includes speeches from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Biden’s former campaign trail opponent Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and the party’s 2016 nominee for president, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.Here is Wednesday’s lineup of speakers:House Speaker Nancy PelosiFormer Secretary of State Hillary ClintonSen.

Share Alex Donohue to head up Press Box PR June 25, 2020 StumbleUpon 888 calls for Betgenius sportsbook makeover June 25, 2020 RankTipsterRace WinsPoints Submit Steven Mullington, the lead horse racing writer on the 888sport blog, has stepped up to challenge bettingexpert’s Stephen Harris in the Flat Season Tipster Challenge at York.Last week, Harris started the new Flat Season competition, sponsored by Betting Gods, by collecting 29.50 points at Chester, which included winners at 16/1 and 15/2.Meanwhile, Mullington, who also writes for the online ‘Grand National Guide’ throughout the year, will be hoping to better the 2.00-point return for Alex Donohue from ODDSbible.____________________________________2:20bettingexpert: Erik The RedWas a very unlucky loser in this handicap last seen and should be spot on now after an encouraging seasonal debut.888sport: Erik The RedCame third in this race last year when it was sponsored by 888sport, and Kevin Ryan appears to have laid him out for this race yet again. A Newcastle all-weather opening run should have sharpened the five-year-old gelding right up.____________________________________2:55bettingexpert: Ninjago (Nap of the Day)Has been catching the eye in defeat and could be sharpened up by the refitting of blinkers.888sport: Out Do (Nap of the Day)David O’Meara and Danny Tudhope are a formidable pairing at this early stage in the season and their Out Do looks very strong in this contest. Listed winners running in handicaps are always of interest and Out Do should be on any shortlist.____________________________________3:30bettingexpert: SuedoisHas yet to win in seven runs for O’Meara, but he competed at the top level in sprints last season and should be primed for this return with ideal conditions.888sport: BrandoHopefully Kevin Ryan will be going for a double when it comes to this race and Brando can give him his second winner of the afternoon. A horse on the upgrade, Brando won first time out this season.____________________________________4:05bettingexpert: Shutter SpeedLooked a top-class filly at Newbury and the form got a major boost when the third there Enable won at Chester last week.888sport: Shutter Speed Very hard to oppose Shutter Speed here and she should give us a good indication to how she may run in the Oaks at Epsom.____________________________________4:35bettingexpert: MazyounHas run well in both handicaps this season and the Palmer stable is now back in the winners.888sport: BatteredRan three races as a two-year-old here, so will be no stranger to the demands of the track. He is very handily weighted and Ryan Moore is a positive jockey booking.____________________________________5:05bettingexpert: Rocket Man DanComes from the excellent Dalgleish stable and looked a winner waiting to happen when touched off by Black Orange last time out (winner has since run a blinder in defeat at Chester).888sport: SavalasMrs Angie Bailey appears to like having a runner named after a film star and her £100,000 purchase, Savalas, has every chance of opening his two-year-old account here. Kevin Ryan trains once again.____________________________________5:35bettingexpert: Red RannaghWell handicapped with bits of form; the booking of Spencer catches the eye after six months on the sidelines.888sport: ChanceryI will take a punt on the popular Knavesmire runner here. The nine-year-old appears to come alive at this track and if he can put his Ripon run behind him he can be a leading player today.____________________________________ Share ‘Better for Bettors’: Better Collective’s formalised approach to sustainable development June 15, 2020 Related Articles 1bettingexpert429.50 2Alex Donohue – ODDSbible12.00
