While voting is still on in the 2020 US Presidential election, President Donald Trump has beaten Democratic challenger, Joe Biden Tuesday in Florida.
US media projected this feat as one of the most important battleground states in his battle for reelection against Biden.
Trump has repeated what he did in 2016, besting Democrat Hillary Clinton by less than a percentage point. But this time, with 29 electoral votes, the Sunshine State was seen as a must-win for Trump.
On a brief history and feature of the state, it is known for nail-bitingly close election results, perhaps the most famous in 2000 between Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore, and its voters have picked the winner in 18 of the past 20 presidential elections.
Meanwhile, in their bid to regain control of the upper chamber of Congress, Democrats flipped a US Senate seat in Colorado Tuesday, but Republicans countered by ousting a vulnerable Democrat in Alabama, networks projected.
