PENNSYLVANIA — Pennsylvania is one of the key battleground states which could decide who will be the next President of the United States.

Trump won 44,000 more votes than Hillary Clinton did in Pennsylvania four years ago.

It was a less than a one percent lead over Clinton in the Keystone State.

As of right now, there are still 176,000 mail-in ballots left to count and the margin is razor thin. Biden is trailing by just 18,000 votes.

Much of those uncounted votes come from democrat-heavy Philadelphia.

Last night, a Federal Court rejected the Trump campaign's bid to stop the counting in Philadelphia, claiming they couldn't get their campaign observers into the room at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

In fact, the court found the Trump campaign had more than a dozen counters in the room.

The commonwealth is not expected to finish counting mail-in ballots until Friday at the earliest.
