Street Celebrations as Biden Wins

Thousands took to the streets of major US cities Saturday, to celebrate as Joe Biden seemed to have clinched the 2020 Presidential election.
Hundreds of people walked down main street in Santa Monica. Most wore masks, some carried flags and expressed hope for the future. Motorists honked their horns and waved in approval.
An even larger celebration took place in downtown Los Angeles. Some wore masks in response to the Covid-19 epidemic, which has killed 250,000 Americans and forced most of this years ballots to be cast by mail.
The celebrants were often seen dancing in front of boarded up stores. It is generally understood that the stores boarded up to avoid being looted by disappointed leftists. Trump supporters have not been seen looting anywhere in America.
Control of the US Senate would turn on two run off elections scheduled for Georgia for January 5, 2020. Most experts expected one or both seats to be awarded to the Republicans, assuring their continued control of the Senate.
In the house, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats appear likely to continue leader ship with about 225 seats, down from 240.
Biden, who received 74,000,000 votes, said Friday that his administration would focus on 4 problems: "Coronavirus, the Economy, Systemic Racism and Climate Change." As a candidate he had advocated a mask mandate and more aggressive, national lockdowns.
"Joe Biden and I are ready to get to work on behalf of the American people," tweeted Vice President elect Kamala Harris.
President Elect Joe Biden, 78, said he was honored and humbled by his election to the US Presidency, something he has sought for decades.
President Donald J. Trump vowed to challenge the legitimacy of the election in Court. Most legal scholars feel overturning the election in one state, let alone several, is a long shot for the incumbent.
