The two parties held dueling press conferences early in the day in Philadelphia, with Mr Trump’s supporters insisting his leadership persist nationwide and the city’s Democrats, led by former Representative Robert A. Brady, revealed an analysis of the remaining Number of votes that Mr. Biden would convincingly win Pennsylvania.
In Georgia, ballot counting in numerous counties continued to undermine Mr Trump’s advantage in the traditionally republican state: on Friday at 3 a.m., he led with just 665 votes out of nearly five million votes.
Tens of thousands of ballot papers had to be counted late in the day in the state, including many in Chatham County, a democratic county on the Georgia coast that is home to Savannah, and many thousands more from Democratic counties also in the Atlanta area.
The Republican Party of Georgia has announced that it will bring up to a dozen lawsuits in the state.
In Arizona, Mr. Biden’s lead was 47,000 votes, significantly less than on election night. There are over two hundred thousand ballots left, many of them from Maricopa County, Phoenix.
Officials in Maricopa said they would release another report on Friday morning.
“We’ll join in and make it happen,” said Adrian Fontes, the Democrat who oversees the county’s elections.
However, the number of votes in Maricopa has been tense since several armed demonstrators appeared at the district office on Wednesday evening. About 200 supporters of Mr. Trump gathered outside the Republican Party of Arizona headquarters Thursday afternoon after some 50 Trump supporters were dispersed outside Phoenix City Hall earlier that day.
Some in the crowd held signs saying “Steal Elections,” “Shame on Fox News,” and “Recall Fontes.” (Fox News called Arizona for Mr. Biden Tuesday night, inflaming Trump supporters.)
