Trump projected to win West Virginia

President Trump has added an additional state to his early election night tally.

On Tuesday, The Associated Press and Fox News projected that Trump will win West Virginia and its five electoral votes. This projection came shortly after polls closed, and it was another state that Trump was expected to easily win this year. During the 2016 election, Trump won West Virginia with nearly 70 percent of the vote.

This projection came after Trump was previously projected to pick up wins in Kentucky and Indiana, as expected, while Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was projected to pick up a similarly expected win in Vermont. Meanwhile, as these unsurprising early results come in, pundits are keeping a close eye on Florida and Georgia, but no winner in either state been projected yet.
