Democratic nominee Joe Biden is projected to win Minnesota’s 10 Electoral College votes, according to NBC News.
Polling averages had indicated Biden held a lead in the state.
The state has chosen Democratic presidential candidates for the last 11 elections. However, Trump only trailed Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton by 1.5% in 2016.
