The presidential race was officially called on Saturday morning when multiple media outlets, including the AP and CNN, named Joe Biden as the new elected President of the United States. Pennsylvania was the decisive victory for Biden with 20 votes, while Trump lagged behind with 214 votes. Some states – like Arizona, Georgia, and North Carolina – were too close to call.

The win makes Harris America’s first female, first black, and first elected South Asian vice president.

Shortly after the first tweet from Louis-Dreyfus, she followed him with another, specifically congratulating the campaign on a job well done while waving a patriotic cake that read “Joe”.
