Donald Trump is projected to have won in Pennsylvania according to the Washington Post, which has put him over the top for the presidency, with 276 electoral votes and a number of states still in play.
At the beginning of the day, Trump had about an 18 percent chance of winning according to ElectionBettingOdds.com, which aggregates data on bets placed on the election. By 10pm ET, he had a 75 percent chance. After midnight, it was north of 90 percent. It is now at 97.6 percent.
Hillary Clinton, however, is not expected to make a concession speech tonight—John Podesta spoke earlier at the campaign headquarters in New York City, saying the campaign wasn’t over yet and that every vote needed to be counted. Clinton did not answer a question on the campaign trail about whether she would concede if she lost, rather repeating that it was “horrifying” that Trump did not say so.
Trump is expected to speak shortly at his campaign headquarters, also is New York City.
