Jen O'Malley Dillon said: "Joe Biden is on track to win this election, and he will be the next president of the United States…
"We believe we are on a clear path to victory by this afternoon."
She also slammed Donald Trump over comments that ballots should stop being counted – and said it would mean a surefire victory for the Democratic candidate.
"Let's be extremely clear about something. If Donald Trump got his wish and we stopped counting ballots right now, Vice President Joe Biden would be the next president of the United States," O'Malley Dillon said.
She said Biden is expected to give a speech on Wednesday afternoon.
She later affirmed: "We are confident that Vice President Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States.
Speaking to repoters on Wednesday, Biden's campaign manager, Bob Bauer also maintained that Biden will sweep a win.
"We're going to win the election. We've won the election. And we're going to defend that election," Bauer said.
As mail-in ballots continue to be counted, Biden held a lead in Wisconsin and Michigan as of Wednesday morning.
The two states could be key to the Democratic candidate winning the election.
In a speech at the White House this morning, Donald Trump claimed victory – despite there being millions of ballots yet to be counted.
"We were getting ready to win this election – frankly we did win this election," Trump claimed.
"So our goal now is to ensure the integrity for the good of this nation. This is a very big moment. This is a major fraud on our nation.
Trump has baselessly claimed that mail-in ballots will lead to widespread voter fraud – and been outspoken against tallying them after Election Day.
Trump even threatened legal action in Pennsylvania – a key battleground state – as a Supreme Court ruled that it would allow mail-in ballots to be counted for three days after November 3.
As ballots continue to pour in, it could be a matter of days – or weeks – until the final results are known.
