Hillary Clinton is projected to win the state of Colorado and its nine electoral votes, according to NBC News.

Clinton leads Republican rival Donald Trump 49% to 43% with 58% of precincts reporting.

In the weeks leading up to the vote, Clinton herself did not campaign in the state but deployed several top surrogates: Bill and Chelsea Clinton, Al Gore, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. Clinton last appeared in Pueblo, CO, on October 12th.

Trump swung into Denver, CO, this past Saturday to make a final push in the state. Dr. Ben Carson campaigned in the Denver metro area one day earlier.

Going into Election Day, RealClearPolitics’ polling average showed Clinton with a 2.9 percent lead over Trump.
