Trump projected to win Kentucky and Indiana

The first projections in the 2020 presidential race have arrived.

Shortly after polls closed, The Associated Press and Fox News projected that President Trump has won Kentucky and its eight electoral votes. Additionally, CNN and NBC News project that Trump has also won Indiana with its 11 electoral votes.

These states, which Trump easily won during the 2016 election, were among the first to have a projected winner on election night. Polls have also now closed in numerous other states including the key battleground of Georgia. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has also been projected to win Vermont.
