MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota has chosen a presidential nominee. According to the Associated Press, the state’s 10 electoral college votes will go to Hillary Clinton, giving her 228.
It’s little consolation to Clinton, who lost the presidential election to Donald Trump.

Minnesota spent much of 2016 hovering between a likely Democratic state and a toss-up still leaning toward Clinton. With 100 percent of precincts reporting as of 5 a.m. Tuesday, Clinton led Donald Trump by about 41,000 votes. Clinton won 47 percent of the vote in Minnesota to Trump’s 45 percent. But an official winner for the state has not been declared.
The most recent time Minnesota went for the GOP candidate was in the 1972 election, when the state tipped toward Richard Nixon, also the incumbent in that race.
