On election night, President Donald J. Trump continued to rack up a series of key wins on his path to a possible 2020 re-election.
Perhaps one of the president’s biggest wins was the state of Ohio.
The Fox News Decision Desk officially called Trump’s win in Ohio late Tuesday, which in turn awarded the president with the Buckeye State’s 18 electoral votes.
“WIRE: Fox News Decision Desk projects President Trump will win Ohio,” Josh Caplan, the home page editor and breaking news reporter at Breitbart News, wrote on Twitter.
NBC News also called the state for Trump.
“Trump wins Ohio, NBC News projects #Election2020,” NBC News political reporter Lauren Egan wrote on Twitter.
With 89 percent reporting, Trump had a decisive lead in Ohio with 53.3 percent of the vote as compared with Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s 45.2 percent of the vote, The New York Times reported.
That translated to 3,003,534 votes in the state for Trump.
Biden, on the other hand, was nearly half a million votes behind with 2,542,401 votes.
In a race that was projected to be close from the very beginning, Trump needed to pick up several key battleground states in order to secure a victory.
With both Florida and Ohio in his column, he was in a very good position late to win a second presidential term.
“One White House official said they flat-out they believe Trump will win, while another expressed some nervous optimism,” Fox News’ Blake Berman reported.
