President Donald Trump is projected to win Florida’s 29 electoral votes, repeating his 2016 success and overcoming the first major challenge to winning reelection.

CNN and NBC followed suit shortly after AP declared Florida for the incumbent president. Trump has scored 51.2 percent of the votes in the state, with more than 95 percent of the votes counted, CNN said.

With its high Electoral College vote count, Florida is historically considered one of the key hurdles a candidate needs to clear on the path to the White House.
