ABC News aired a breaking news special to address the projections that came Saturday afternoon calling the win for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the 2020 presidential election. Biden and Harris delivered their first remarks as projected president-elect and vice president-elect during the special.

Watch it in the player below:

The projected victory comes four days after Election Day. The former vice president earned enough votes in crucial battleground states to exceed the 270 electoral votes needed to claim victory Saturday.

Biden's win in Pennsylvania put him over the 270 threshold and less than an our later, the AP projected he would also win Nevada, bringing him to a total of 290 electoral votes.
