New York City erupted in deafening noise moments after the news broke, with hundreds gathering in Times Square. 

Biden, 77, will be the 46th president of the United States.

The Biden-Harris victory came after more than three days of uncertainty in the contest as election officials quickly worked to sort through a historic surge of mail-in and provisional ballots that delayed the process. 

Biden crossed the 270 Electoral College vote threshold with a win in Pennsylvania, the Fox News Decision Desk projected. 

President Trump, however, has refused to concede, vowing further legal action on ballot counting.

Biden and Harris are set to address the nation from Wilmington, Delaware, later tonight.
