JOE Biden has WON in Arizona according to multiple outlet projections, turning the state blue for the first time since 1996.
The announcement from outlets including ABC, NBC, and CNN comes after more than a week of counting following Election Day.
While the Associated Press and Fox News had called the state a win last week, a majority of outlets held off on calling Biden’s victory in the battleground state.
On Thursday night, however, that changed – putting Biden even further over the finish line in winning the presidency.
The Democrat is now projected to have 290 electoral college votes, according to multiple projections – well over the majority 270 needed to win the election.
Biden’s victory in the battleground is the first time a Democrat has won the state since 1996.
The last time the state voted blue in a presidential election was during Bill Clinton’s re-election in 1996.
