ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Former President Jimmy Carter congratulated President-Elect Joe Biden for his victory over President Donald Trump.

In a statement on Twitter from The Carter Center, the former president said he “looks forward to seeing the positive change (Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris) bring to our nation.”

On Saturday, Biden passed 270 electoral votes after winning Pennsylvania.

Georgia still has yet to be called but, as of Saturday, Biden has a slight lead over President Trump, according to the Secretary of State’s Office.
