Rodney Young / $9.01 Million

Rodney Young is the Lotto America jackpot winner from the April 1, 2020 drawing. The winning ticket was sold at Blue Wing Market, 5716 McMinnville Hwy. in Woodbury, TN.

Jeffrey Love / $21.6 Million

ROSEVILLE, Minn. (July 12, 2019) – A Lotto America ® ticket worth $21.6 million was in the glove box of an Elk River resident’s car until this morning. Jeffery Love was on his way to work when he found out that he is a multimillionaire. He initially called into work and told them he would “be a little late.” It wasn’t long before he called back and let them know that he wouldn’t be in at all today.

Chuck Anderson / $4.38 Million

CLIVE, Iowa (May 10, 2018) – A Davenport man on Thursday claimed a $4.38 million lottery jackpot, acknowledging that he had beaten long odds to win a jackpot with a ticket he received as a free play in a lottery promotion.

But Chuck Anderson emphasized that he wasn’t getting ahead of himself.

Kujava Family / $22.8 Million

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – A brother and sister from Badger, Minn. have a long-standing agreement that if “one wins, we both win”—and a Lotto America jackpot worth $22.8 million was no exception.

Debbie Kujava purchased the $22.8 million winning ticket for the March 14 drawing at Holiday Stationstores, located at 503-3rd St. N.E., in Roseau on her way home from work on March 12.

David Kokenge / $20,000

CLIVE, Iowa – A Council Bluffs man couldn’t believe his eyes when the self-checker machine read $20,000 after scanning his Lotto America ticket.

“So I ran it through probably half a dozen times,” laughed Kokenge. “It might have been more than half a dozen.”

David Kokenge, who is 66 and recently retired, was just one number away from winning a big Lotto America jackpot in the Feb. 14 drawing. He matched the first five numbers, but missed the Star Ball℠ to win a $20,000 prize.

Brian Spicer / $20,000

CLIVE, Iowa – A Des Moines man was just one number away from winning a big Lotto America jackpot and ended up winning a $20,000 prize.

Brian Spicer matched the first five numbers, but missed the Star Ball in the January 6 drawing to win a $20,000 prize.

The winning numbers in that night’s $17.71 million jackpot drawing were: 9-13-26-38-48 and Star Ball 7. The All Star Bonus multiplier number was 3.

Spicer purchased his winning ticket at C Fresh Market, 801 University Ave. in Des Moines.

Lotto America® is a new game with a familiar name!

The original Lotto*America game was launched in 1988 by the Multi-State Lottery Association. At the time, there were seven participating lotteries: Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oregon, Rhode Island, West Virginia and Washington DC. Nine additional lotteries began selling the Lotto*America game in the years that followed.

The final Lotto*America drawing was held on April 18, 1992.

On April 19, 1992, sales began for a new multi-jurisdictional draw game – Powerball®.

US election 2020: Joe Biden wins the White House

Democrat takes Pennsylvania to clinch victory over Donald Trump

Joe Biden has won the US election, beating Donald Trump to claim the White House even as counting continues in several states.

The Democrat took Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes to pass the threshold of 270 electors needed to clinch the hard-fought victory.

Biden tweeted that he was “honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country”, adding: “The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a president for all Americans – whether you voted for me or not.”

Trump responded by reiterating the false claim that “illegal ballots” have been counted in Biden’s favour, adding: “The simple fact is that this election is far from over.”

Even prior to Biden’s victory, the Trump campaign had already launched lawsuits in a number of swing states and won a request for a recount in Wisconsin.

Route to victory

Biden won in Pennsylvania to take the White House, having already won key swing states including Arizona, Wisconsin and Michigan. He now has 284 electoral college votes – 14 more than the 270 required to secure the top job.

Trump needed to win all four remaining states – Pennsylvania, Nevada, North Carolina and Georgia – to retain the presidency. He is the first incumbent to fail to win a second term since Republican George H. W. Bush lost to Democrat Bill Clinton in 1992.

Who did the polls say would win?

The BBC poll of polls showed that just over half of American voters (52%) intended to back Biden. The president, on 44%, trailed his Democratic rival by eight points. The final daily tracking poll by Morning Consult delivered the same percentages.

However, the US uses an electoral-college system, so winning the most votes doesn’t always win you the election, as Hillary Clinton discovered in 2016.

When it comes to the all-important electoral college, RealClearPolitics predicted 216 votes for Biden and 125 for Trump, with the remaining 197 votes described as “toss ups”.

The Economist was more robust in its forecast, giving Biden a 96% chance of winning the electoral college, with Trump awarded only a 4% chance of managing the same feat.

The Center for Politics’ final electoral college ratings also made good reading for Democrats, showing Biden at 321 electoral votes and Trump at 217.

The final New Statesman US election forecast gave Biden a 90.4% chance, the highest his polling had hit in the magazine’s model. Trump, meanwhile, had a far from negligible 10% chance of retaining the White House.

How was turnout?

With more than 101 millions votes cast early, this election was expected to mark the highest voter turnout in the US in more than a century.

And voters did not disappoint: Bloomberg’s modelling anticipates that the total number of presidential votes cast will be between 157 million and 165 million. That translates as 68.6% to 72.1% of the voting-age population and would mark the highest level of voter engagement in the US since the early 1900s.

Biden has so far won more than 72 million votes, beating the previous record for most votes for a presidential candidate set by his former boss Barack Obama, who secured 69.4 million in 2008. I n a signifier of the scale of voter turnout this time round, Trump has also surpassed Obama’s tally, with 69.6 million votes and counting.

What if Trump refuses to leave the White House?

The president has baselessly claimed that “this is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country.” Speaking at the White House, he added: “We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election.”

Every presidential candidate to lose an election has conceded power, meaning Trump’s refusal to follow suit would “take the US into unchartered territory and it is not clear how it would play out”, the BBC says.

What are the candidates’ policies?

The election campaign has been high on personal insults, but low on policies.

The Republicans this year passed a one-page resolution at their convention stating that they were not going to have a new platform, but saying the party “has and will continue to enthusiastically support the president’s America-first agenda”.

Trump has pledged to cut taxes and create jobs, but otherwise has only presented a non-specific set of promises around “law and order” and “continuing to drain the swamp”.

Biden, meanwhile, has promised to reverse much of Trump’s legacy, undoing tax cuts and rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement. The experienced Democrat has also committed to take urgent environmental action and boost America’s struggling middle class.

Who are the vice presidential candidates?

Mike Pence, the current vice president, describes himself as “a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order” and was seen as a safe bet by many in conservative circles when he was selected as Trump’s running mate in the build-up to the last election.

A former talk radio host who once infamously claimed that “smoking doesn’t kill”, the 61-year-old ended his campaign to be re-elected as Governor of Indiana, a post he had held since 2011, to become Trump’s right-hand man.

During his four years as vice president, “he has cast 13 tie-breaking votes in his dual constitutional role as President of the United States Senate – including pushing through a bill to defund Planned Parenthood”, Sky News says.

Meanwhile, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden’s pick to join him in the White House, mounted an unsuccessful challenge for the Democratic presidential nomination in the months before she confirmed her place on the ticket.

The 55-year-old ex-attorney general of California, who has served as one of the state’s senators since 2017, was born on the US West Coast to an Indian-born mother and Jamaican-born father.

GovTrack, a congressional bill-tracking website, rates her as the most liberal senator in the Senate based on her voting record for the past year – but she has faced attacks from progressives for “dodging” fights on issues such as police reform and wrongful convictions, the BBC notes.

Who is endorsing who?

When it comes to starpower, Biden beats Trump hands down.

Some of Biden’s early supporters included Game of Thrones author George RR Martin, athlete Michelle Kwan and actors Rob Reiner, Vivica A Fox, Tom Hanks and his wife, actor Rita Wilson.

And since securing the nomination the former VP’s celebrity support base has grown, with heavyweights as Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Taylor Swift, Cardi B and, of course, former president Barack Obama, joining Team Biden.

Trump, on the other hand, has received endorsements from Jon Voight, Roseanne Barr, Scott Baio and Stacey Dash. He briefly had the support of hugely influential hip hop artist Kanye West, but West retracted this endorsement shortly after in order to launch his own presidential campaign.

What does the election mean for the UK?

Many in Whitehall will be hoping for a Biden victory, as it would signal a return to diplomatic normality and the expected continuation of the “special relationship”.

However, relations are “terribly, terribly fraught, really in either administration, but more fraught I think in the Trump administration,” Jeremy Shapiro, an ex-State Department staffer, told The Washington Post.

If Trump does win a second term in the White House, “Johnson can reassure his party that rule-breaking populists still have a winning appeal for those who feel betrayed by mainstream politics,” The Guardian says.

But “one of Biden’s priorities will be to repair the relationship with Europe, that will give us less clout,” Nicholas Burns, a senior diplomat in the Clinton and Bush administrations, told the paper. Having vocally opposed the Brexit project, Biden may prove less eager to strengthen ties with Downing Street if he secures the White House.

Concerns are growing inside Downing Street about a changing of the guard in Washington that could “leave Johnson scrambling to rebuild the ‘special relationship’”, according to the Financial Times .
