The U.S. Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden told supporters he was optimistic about winning the election but stopped short of claiming victory before retiring for the night with multiple states remaining in the balance.

“Look, we feel good about where we are. We really do,” Biden said.

I’m here to tell you tonight we believe we’re on track to win this election.

He warned that, because of the “unprecedented” early and mail-in vote, it will take a while to count every ballot.

“We’re feeling real good about Wisconsin and Michigan,” Biden said, naming two key Midwest battleground states. He also expressed belief in winning Pennsylvania. Trump currently has a lead lead in all three, but a lot of the early and mail-in ballots are still being counted and the states are all run by Democrats.

“Keep the faith guys, we’re gonna win this!” Biden told the crowd, before retiring for the night.

AP and multiple other outlets have called Texas for President Donald Trump, adding another 38 electoral votes to his column. Trump had a six percentage point over Democrat challenger Joe Biden at that point.

Biden, in his remarks earlier tonight, stated specifically he was confident about winning in Arizona, Wisconsin and Michigan -- and said he expected to win in Pennsylvania, though it could take days to count the results.

President Trump has made it clear he doesn’t want to wait days for results. It will be especially interesting to hear what he has to say about Pennsylvania.
