Joe Biden has defeated President Donald Trump in battleground Michigan, securing the state’s 16 electoral votes and reclaiming another key part of the blue wall that slipped away from Democrats four years ago.
The Associated Press called the state for the Democrat at about 4 p.m.
The flip in Michigan from red back to blue is a blow to Trump. Trump’s victories in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania in 2016 sent him to the White House.
Biden has also won Wisconsin, while Pennsylvania has not been called.
The victory for Biden bumps him up to 264 electoral votes, while Trump has 214. It takes 270 to win the presidency.
One win in an undeclared state would give Biden the presidency.
