Biden gained votes for the official nomination as a presidential candidate

Former US Vice President Joe Biden won enough votes from delegates to officially nominate him for the presidential election, the Associated Press reports.

As the Agency reminds, to officially nominate a candidate, the applicant needs the support of at least one delegate. According to the calculations of analysts of the associated Press, Biden now has 1993 votes.

The former Vice President remained the only democratic candidate after his last competitor, Bernie Sanders, withdrew from the race.

Elections for the President, as well as for both houses of Congress, are scheduled for November 3. Republicans should nominate the current head of the White House, Donald Trump, for a second term. The party conventions that will nominate candidates are scheduled for August.
