Dr. Stephen Maynard Caliendo shares an update on the status of the Election 2020

A few states had still yet to be decided in the race for the White House. As the wait continued, Americans questioned who would be the first candidate to reach that electoral 270 for the election win. Dr. Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, weighed in on FOX 32 Chicago as to whether or not the wait for results was surprising and how long voters can expect to wait.

“We want to count all the votes and find out,” said Dr. Caliendo. “A number of states are not quite there yet. It has been a close race and we want to see how it plays out. At some point there will have to be some discussion in the inner circle for the president about when he is willing to concede but that should not be until enough votes are counted, and many media organizations are convinced the states are ready to be called.”
