Joe Biden will become the 46th president of the United States, CNN projects, after a victory in the state where he was born put him over the 270 electoral votes needed to win.

With Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes, Biden now has a total of 273 electoral votes.

Before becoming the Democratic presidential nominee, Biden served as vice president under former President Barack Obama. He is also Delaware’s longest-serving senator.

Throughout his campaign, Biden has argued that the “soul of the nation” is at stake, and has promised that he would seek to heal a country fractured by Trump’s presidency.2 min ago

Harris, who has represented California in the Senate since 2017, is the daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, and she grew up attending a Black Baptist church and a Hindu temple.

She was the first Indian-American and second Black woman to serve as a senator.12 min ago

Biden campaign was anticipating Arizona tightening

Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon anticipated President Trump gaining a bit of ground in Arizona’s Maricopa County, which led her to issue this gentle warning yesterday: “Folks are going to need to stay patient and stay calm.”

They had expected Trump to close the gap in Arizona’s largest county – but they still believe Biden has more support coming in from the 220,000 uncounted votes in the state. They remain confident he will carry the state.

The Biden campaign remains focused on Pennsylvania today. They were hoping Pennsylvania would be called before the Arizona development, an aide said, but they insist it doesn’t change the trajectory of things.

They’re still confident Biden is on the cusp of being declared president.

Maricopa County, Arizona, may be an “opportunity” for President Trump, CNN’s John King says

From CNN’s Aditi Sangal / On-air analysis by CNN’s John King

Maricopa County, Arizona, may be an “opportunity” for Trump in his path to 270 electoral votes, CNN’s John King said as the President continues to chip away at Joe Biden’s lead in the state.

“It’s the flip of what we’ve seen in Georgia and Pennsylvania,” King noted, referencing Biden’s recent leads in those states.

The latest update from the state’s most populated county, which is also home to Phoenix, show that Biden’s lead in the state is shrinking. The Democratic presidential nominee gained 28,285 votes. Trump gained more — 31,716 votes.

“Six in 10 votes in Arizona are cast in Maricopa County,” King said, adding that with each update from the county in the past 24 hours, “the President is consistently coming out on top.”

Trump won Maricopa County in 2016 and while the suburban shift has been helping Biden across America, King noted that Maricopa County is not a “blowout Democratic county” like Philadelphia is.“This is the opportunity for the President, the possibility. He still has a long way to go. But we have seen it consistently when we get these batches of vote, that the President — not by a ton — but he’s chipping into the lead,” King added.

Trump and Biden locked in a nail-biter as race for the White House comes down to key states

mercoledì, Novembre 4th, 2020

By Maeve Reston and Stephen Collinson, CNN

(CNN)President Donald Trump attempted to claim victory in the presidential race and called for a halt to legitimate vote counting that is underway around the country in a chilling threat to American democracyIn fact, the election is far from over with millions of votes outstanding in key states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan — ballots that were cast before Election Day that have yet to be counted. Yet Trump sought to mislead his loyal supporters by conflating the legitimate counting of ballots with voting as he falsely claimed Democrats were trying to “steal the election.”Former Vice President Joe Biden holds the lead in the Electoral College at this stage in the night, 220-213; 270 electoral votes are needed to become president.Facing the real possibility that he could lose, Trump — as expected — appeared to be seizing the opportunity to confuse his supporters about the democratic process and suggest that there was something nefarious about the fact that many states are still counting votes. The lengthy vote count, which could extend for several days, was widely anticipated because so many Americans cast vote-by-mail ballots to protect themselves from exposure to the coronavirus in the middle of a pandemic.While making the ludicrous suggestion that the counting of legally cast votes should stop as he watched his margins narrow in several key swing states, Trump made a wild threat that his lawyers would take their case to the Supreme Court even though it remains unclear what their legal rationale would be.Even within Trump’s short speech there was a glaring inconsistency in his position as he advocated for votes to continue to be counted in Arizona, a state that he believes is more favorable to him, while expressing anger that one network had called it early. CNN has not projected a winner in Arizona.He celebrated his victories in Florida and Ohio, and claimed to win multiple states that CNN has yet to project. His call for an end to the counting was the kind of dangerous election night speech that political observers long feared Trump would make, in which he falsely claimed, “This is a major fraud on our nation.”Trump and Biden are locked in a momentous election could come down to Arizona, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan.Biden was the first candidate to speak to supporters early Wednesday morning, after a night of results didn’t deliver a quick winner, saying that “we believe we’re on track to win this election.”The former vice president said it was not up to him or Trump to decide the winner of the election and that the votes would be counted.

“Keep the faith guys, we’re going to win this,” Biden said.Trump won a close race in Florida, which was one of the states Biden had hoped to peel away from the President’s 2016 map and has a narrow edge in North Carolina, which remains too close to call. The former vice president is hoping that Arizona, where he has a 8 percentage point lead with 75% of the ballots counted could be his first victory of the night that turns a red state blue. Increasingly it appears that the result of the entire election could hinge on whether Biden can restore the Democratic “blue wall” in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, a scenario that could mean the result may not be known on Tuesday night, and could stretch into the coming days as large numbers of mail-in votes are counted.Biden currently leads the Electoral College at this early stage in the night, but the key battlegrounds that will decide who serves as president for the next four years are still in play.The night unfolded as the most unorthodox election night in modern memory. At times it appeared like one candidate or the other was heading for an early win in important states. But batches of mail-in and early votes meant the count often dramatically shifted one way or the other.Polls are now closed across the continental US on a nerve-jangling night that will set the nation’s course for the next four years and cast judgment on the most tumultuous presidency of the modern age. Results are flowing in from battlegrounds and it’s too early to make a projection in many key states.CNN projects Biden will win Rhode Island, Minnesota, Virginia, California, Oregon, Washington, Illinois, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Colorado, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Vermont, Delaware, Washington, DC, Maryland, Massachusetts and one of Nebraska’s five electoral votes. Nebraska awards two electoral votes to its statewide winner and divides three others over its three congressional districts. CNN projects Trump will also win in Montana, Texas, Iowa, Idaho, Ohio, Mississippi, Wyoming, Missouri, Kansas, Utah, Louisiana, Alabama, South Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Arkansas, Indiana, Oklahoma, Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee and four of Nebraska’s five electoral votes.

革新的な洋服づくりで世界的に活躍したファッションデザイナーの高田賢三(たかだ・けんぞう)さんが4日、新型コロナウイルス感染のためパリ郊外の病院で死去した。81歳だった。

 兵庫県姫路市出身。文化服装学院を卒業後、1965年に貨客船でフランスに渡り、修業を経て70年にパリにブティックを開いた。「高級既製服」の草分けの一人とされる。

 直線と面で作る民族衣装の発想を洋服に取り込み、独創性でパリモードの常識を破った。直線裁ちの大きな服で新鮮な印象を与えた。夏物にだけ使われていた木綿を、秋冬物にも使った。タブー視されていた原色づかいや、花柄と縞(しま)の組み合わせで注目された。

 ショーのあり方も、自分の店の中で衣服ごとの番号札を持ったモデルが1人ずつ歩く形態から、大会場で音楽を流し、何人もが同時に踊り、練り歩く姿へ変えた。ハンドバッグでもショルダーバッグでもない「ポシェット」を作り出し、重ね着ルックを提案した。

黒い雨訴訟、広島市と広島県が控訴 国の要請受け入れ

控訴を表明した加藤勝信厚生労働相=12日、東京都千代田区

 広島への原爆投下後に降った「黒い雨」を国の援護対象地域外で浴びた住民ら84人全員を被爆者援護法上の「被爆者」と認め、被爆者健康手帳の交付を命じた広島地裁判決について、国と被告の広島県広島市が12日、控訴した。市と県に手帳交付事務を委託し、訴訟に被告ではなく補助的立場で参加する国の控訴方針を受け入れた。一方、国はこの日、援護対象となる地域の拡大を視野に再度の検証を始めると表明した。

 訴訟の控訴期限の12日午前、広島市松井一実市長は会見して控訴したと明らかにした上で「援護を早急に進めるよう国に強く求めていきたい。訴訟手続きは淡々と進め、救済措置をどう考えるかについて重点を置いてやっていただければ」と強調した。松井市長によると、国側が県や市の要望を受けて援護対象の地域拡大を視野に再検討する意向を示したことから、市と県は控訴に応じたという。

 加藤勝信厚生労働相はこの日、「(地裁判決は)これまでの最高裁判決とも異なり、十分な科学的知見に基づいたとは言えない判決内容となっている」として控訴に至った理由を説明した。一方で県や市などが求める援護対象地域の見直しについて「黒い雨地域の拡大も視野に入れ、最新の科学技術を用いて可能な限りの検証を行う」とした。

 検証を終える時期について加藤氏は「スピード感を持ってやっていく」と述べた。また、検証が長崎の被爆者に与える影響を問われると「場合によってはつながっていく」とした。

福岡県警は6日、詐欺被害を未然に防いだとして、セブンイレブン中間通谷店(中間市)の入江武さん(48)に感謝状を贈った。鍵になったのは「5万円分」というフレーズ。1年ほど前のことを思い出した入江さんが機転を利かせた。

 80代の男性が店に来たのは7月10日午後6時ごろ。インターネットで使えるプリペイドカードを求める男性を、女性店員(20)が売り場へ案内していた。「5万円分」という言葉が気になり、入江さんは男性に声をかけ、事情を聞いた。

 「買わないと、パソコンが使えなくなる」。男性は焦った様子だった。この日の午後、自宅のパソコンに表示された「ウイルスに感染した」というメッセージを見て、そこに記載された番号に電話をしたという。電話口で男から、30分以内にコンビニで5万円分のプリペイドカードを買って連絡するよう言われ、急いで車を走らせたそうだ。
