As the night stretches on, more and more states are being colored in and added to the map. Hillary Clinton is projected to win in New York, the New England states of Maine, Massachusetts, Delaware, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, plus Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia, while Trump has added states like Texas, Arkansas, North Dakota, Alabama, Mississippi, and South Dakota to his tally.
In Illinois, Tammy Duckworth has been projected as the winner in that state’s U.S. Senate contest, defeating incumbent Republican Mark Kirk.
The big battleground states, however, remain uncalled. These include Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, and Florida. Trump is ahead in several of them, but not all.
In Florida’s U.S. Senate contest, incumbent Republican Marco Rubio has declared victory over Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy.
