US Election: How Joe Biden won the election

President-elect Joe Biden has secured more than the 270 electoral college votes needed to win the US presidential election. After Hillary Clinton lost the traditional Democratic "blue wall" of states such as Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan in 2016, how did Joe Biden win them back and manage to carve a path to power?  Amanda Renteria, CEO of Code for America and former National Policy Director for Hillary Clinton's 2016's campaign, describes how Biden and Harris's campaign developed.
