The Associated Press has projected Joe Biden as the winner of Minnesota's 10 electoral votes. However, the final results as to who will be the next president remain unclear.
As of 11:07 p.m., President Donald Trump had 960,809 votes (43.64%), while Democratic challenger Biden had 1,184,898 votes (53.82%), according to the Secretary of State's website. That's according to 63.97% of precincts reporting.
The Twin Cities metro was a stronghold for Biden, with the suburbs trending bluer as it has in recent years. Meanwhile, much of rural Minnesota remains a stronghold for Trump and Republicans as was the case in 2016, which helped propel Trump to victory that year.
And Trump lost significant ground in the Twin Cities suburbs, with the Republican share of the vote eroding further in the likes of Anoka County compared to the 2018 mid-terms and the 2016 elections.
Throughout the campaign, Trump fixated on winning Minnesota after narrowly losing to Hillary Clinton by 1.5% in 2016 and flipping the state red for the first time since Richard Nixon in 1972 (the longest streak in the nation).
Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Trump's family members visited Minnesota multiple times throughout the campaign, with Trump holding several rallies in greater Minnesota, including a stop in Rochester on Friday and a previous visit to Duluth on Sept. 30 – right before he tested positive for COVID-19.
Meanwhile, Biden visited the state fewer times but led in the polls for his entire campaign.
Due to a high number of absentee ballots in this year's election, unofficial election results are coming in slowly, making it too early to declare a clear winner at this writing.
