Fox News and NBC News call the Midwestern state – which has 18 electoral votes – for Donald Trump

President Donald Trump on Tuesday, November 3 (Wednesday, November 4, Manila time), prevailed in the hotly contested Rust Belt state of Ohio – one he seized in 2016 and which is key to his efforts to win reelection over Democratic challenger Joe Biden.

Fox News and NBC News called the Midwestern state – which has 18 electoral votes – for the incumbent.

So far, based on projections from US networks, Biden has amassed 209 electoral votes with his statewide wins, while Trump is at 138. The magic number is 270.

Observers expect the hotly contested race for the White House to come down to a handful of key battleground states that have yet to be called by two networks. –
