I’LL GET YOU CAUGHT UP ON THE LATEST WITH THAT COMING UP. GEOFF: ALL RIGHT, PARELLA. THANK YOU. BREAKING NEWS HERE THIS MORNING — DEPUTIES ARE ON THE SCENE OF A DEATH INVESTIGATION IN GREENVILLE COUNTY. TAGGART: DEPUTIES WERE CALLED TO THE ECONOMY INN ON AUGUSTA ROAD JUST AFTER MIDNIGHT. THAT’S WHERE THEY FOUND THE VICTIM. THE CORONER’S OFFICE WAS CALLED SHORTLY AFTER. WE ARE WORKING TO GET INFORMATION ON THE DEATH AND THE VICTIM. WE’LL UPDATE YOU WHEN WE GET NEW INFORMATION. BREAKING NEWS OVERNIGHT OUT OF SENECA — TWO YOUNG PEOPLE DEAD AFTER A SHOOTING. GEOFF: INTERIM POLICE CHIEF SAYING THAT OFFICERS FOUND TWO YOUNG MEN AT AN APARTMENT ON TRIBBLE STREET AFTER AROUND 7:00 SUNDAY EVENING. 20-YEAR-OLD FROM PICKENS DIED AT THE SCENE AND A 17-YEAR-OLD FROM SENECA DIED ON THE WAY TO THE HOSPITAL. POLICE DON’T BELIEVE THERE WAS ANYONE ELSE INVOLVED. NAMES OF THE TWO YOUNG MEN HAVE NOT BEEN RELEASED. TAGGART: TODAY PRESIDENT-ELECT JOE BIDEN IS GETTING STARTED ON TACKLING THE FIRST MAJOR ISSUE OF HIS CAMPAIGN, THAT BEING COVID-19. GEOFF: JARRED HILL IS IN OUR EXCLUSIVE WASHINGTON BUREAU WITH WHAT’S SHAPING UP AND HOW PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP CONTINUES TO FIGHT FOR THE WHITE HOUSE. JARRED: SO, GEOFF AND TAGGART, MANAGING THE PANDEMIC IS SHAPING UP TO BE A TOP PRIORITY FOR PRESIDENT-ELECT BIDEN WITH AN ANNOUNCEMENT SCHEDULED FOR TODAY. BUT WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP CONTINUING TO CHALLENGE THE RESULTS OF THIS ELECTION, THERE’S A MAJOR ROADBLOCK ON THE ROAD AHEAD. A PROMISE THAT WILL SHAPE THE BEGINNING OF HIS TERM. >> I WILL SPARE NO EFFORT, NONE, OR ANY COMMITMEN TO TURN AROUND THIS PANDEMIC. JARRED: PRESIDENT-ELECT JOE BIDEN IN A VICTORY SPEECH ANNOUNCING THAT TODAY HE’LL NAME A GROUP OF SCIENTISTS TO HIS TRANSITION TEAM. THE TRANSITION WEBSITE ALREADY UP AND RUNNING LAYS OUT A PLAN FOCUSED ON RAMPING UP FREE TESTING AND FURTHER CLARITY FOR SCHOOLS AND BUSINESSES. >> THAT PLAN WILL BE BUILT ON BEDROCK SCIENCE. IT WILL BE CONSTRUCTED OUT OF COMPASSION, EMPATHY AND CONCERN. JARRED: BUT AS TEAM BIDEN PUSHES FORWARD, PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS SUPPORTERS ARE PUSHING BACK. >> PRESIDENT TRUMP SHOULD NOT CONCEDE. JARRED: STATES STILL HAVE TIME TO CERTIFY THE RESULTS. BIDEN CONTINUES TO LEAD BY, IN THE CASE OF PENNSYLVANIA, TENS OF THOUSANDS OF VOTES. SO IT’S NOT BELIEVED THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS A PATH TO VICTORY. STILL, HIS PERSONAL LAWYER, RUDY GIULIANI, SAYS LAWSUITS WILL OFFICIALLY GO OUT TODAY. >> FOR VIOLATING CIVIL RIGHTS, FOR CONDUCTING AN UNFAIR ELECTION. JARRED: THAT STATEMENT UNFOUNDED. OTHER TOP REPUBLICANS ARE GETTING BEHIND THE NEW PRESIDENT. FORMER PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH WROTE — WE MUST COME TOGETHER FOR THE SAKE OF OUR FAMILIES AND NEIGHBORS. AND SENATOR MITT ROMNEY GETTING BEHIND BIDEN, THOUGH NOT NECESSARILY HIS POLICIES. >> I CONGRATULATE HIM, BUT I’M NOT GOING TO PUT ASIDE CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES. WE’RE GOING TO FIGHT FOR THE THINGS WE BELIEVE IN. JARRED: IT’S UP TO THE GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION, A NONPARTISAN GROUP LED BY A TRUMP APPOINTEE, TO FORMALLY RECOGNIZE BIDEN AS PRESIDENT-ELECT AND PASS OVER SOME OF THOSE RESOURCES TO BEGIN A TRANSITION PROCESS. WELL, SHE HASN’T DONE THAT, AND THERE’S NO INDICATION ON WHEN THAT MIGHT HAPPEN. REPORTING IN WASHINGTON, I’M JARRED HILL FOR WYFF NEWS 4.
