WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden has won Nevada, the Associated Press projects.

Joe Biden was already projected to be the 46th president of the United States after the AP projected him winner of Pennsylvania, putting him over the 270 electoral vote-threshold.

President-elect Joe Biden says it’s time for America to “unite” and to “heal.”

Biden said in a statement Saturday, “With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation.”

“We are the United States of America,” he wrote. “And there’s nothing we can’t do, if we do it together.”

Biden made no mention of his opponent, President Donald Trump, who has not conceded the race.

Biden clinched the White House with a victory in Pennsylvania, the state where he was born. He will be the 46th president of the United States.
