The Associated Press on Wednesday night called a competitive Bucks County congressional race for incumbent Brian Fitzpatrick.
The rest of the region shows Biden with sizable margins as the bulk of vote counting winds down. Statewide, mail ballot trends show a path to victory for Biden.
In Montgomery County, all mail ballots received by 8 p.m. on Election Day have been counted. Philadelphia’s most populous suburb has shifted dramatically towards Democrats in recent years. Here Biden has swept ahead with 313,543 votes, whereas Trump won only 182,907.
Both parties increased their vote totals over 2016, but Democrats significantly expanded their margin this year.
In 2016, Clinton got 256k to Trump’s 162k in MontCo.
In 2020, Biden notches 313k to Trump’s 182k.
That’s a 94k margin becoming a 131k margin in one of Pa.’s bluest counties. https://t.co/LBieRH58LN

Chester County has also finished its initial tally, with Biden in the lead, 57% to 41%. The Pennsylvania Department of State shows that there are still more than 40,000 mail ballots left to count, but a spokesperson for the Board of Elections said that’s a reporting error.
