(KDRTV) – The secret service has beefed up security around Democratic Candidate Joe Biden ahead of his anticipated Presidential win against Donald Trump.
According to the Washington Post, the Secret Service has increased the number of agents around Biden’s Delaware home starting from Friday.
Secret Service sends in more agents when they know there is a winner. They never did this for John Kerry or Mitt Romney. The agents added to Biden's security detail are the ones who will walk him into the Oval Office. https://t.co/1qN4dBTTXy

“The additional security for Biden that is expected to begin Friday doesn’t give him a full protective detail that accompanies a president-elect but moves closer in that direction. It remains unclear when the Secret Service would provide that level of security for Biden should he win,” the respectable outlet reported.
It is believed the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has imposed a one nautical mile radius ‘no-fly zone’ over Biden’s Delaware Home as a security measure.
@SecretService summoned agents as Biden campaign alerted the agency they would continue to operate out of Wilmington convention center one more day — and would likely make a big announcement Friday.

Meanwhile, Biden has moved closer to winning the US Presidential election after edging ahead of Donald Trump in Georgia State. Several outlest have reported Biden is in front by 917 ballots with less than one percent of votes remaining to count.
If he maintains the lead, he will become the first Democratic candidate to win the key state since Bill Clinton in 1992.
