Clinton wins Virginia

Hillary Clinton

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Hillary Clinton has won Virginia. The Democratic nominee has captured its 13 electoral votes.

Virginia was reliably Republican for decades until Barack Obama won it twice, thanks in part to huge turnout from Washington, D.C.’s suburbs. Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, is a senator from Virginia, though Trump made a late push in the state.

At the time, the victory gave her 122 electoral votes. Her Republican opponent Donald Trump had 168.
