NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris on Wednesday launched a “transition team” website after securing projected wins in several key battleground states.

The website, which currently consists of just a landing page, says that the “American people will determine who will serve as the next President of the United States.”

“Votes are still being counted in several states around the country. The crises facing the country are severe — from a pandemic to an economic recession, climate change to racial injustice — and the transition team will continue preparing at full speed so that the Biden-Harris administration can hit the ground running on Day One,” the site adds.

Biden is projected to win in swing states including Wisconsin and Michigan, but as of Wednesday evening, it was still too early to call races in Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Alaska.

In a brief address Wednesday afternoon, shortly before a bevy of news outlets projected he would win Michigan, the former vice president said it was “clear that we’re winning enough states to reach 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.”

“I’m not here to declare that we’ve won,” he said. “But I am here to report when the count is finished, we believe we will be the winners.”
