President-elect Joe Biden is projected to win the state of Arizona, NBC News reported.
Arizona has 11 Electoral College votes. Polling averages had indicated that Biden was a slight favorite to win the state. Trump won Arizona by slightly more than 3 percentage points in 2016.
The last time Arizona voted Democratic in a presidential election was 1996, when Bill Clinton was reelected. Otherwise, known for GOP stalwarts such as late Sens. Barry Goldwater and John McCain, the state has been solidly Republican since the 1950s.
