Joe Biden and a liberal candidate for the Wisconsin Supreme Court whose opponent was endorsed by President Donald Trump have emerged victorious in the state's turbulent election.

The vote last week was marked by the struggle over whether the election should have been held at all last week amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden's win was a foregone conclusion.
