    US President Donald Trump is the projected winner of the state of Florida, a key, must-win state for the incumbent, according to results issued by Decision Desk HQ.

    With more than 10.3 million votes counted, Trump is projected to take Florida in the presidential election over Democratic presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden. 

    A total of 29 electoral votes are expected to go to the US president for winning the state. Decision Desk HQ has estimated that more than 95% of votes in the state are in. 

    “We feel really, really good about where we stand in Florida,” Trump 2020 campaign manager Bill Stepien said on a Tuesday evening call with reporters, as reported by Fox News.

    He noted that Trump achieved “a lot of success in developing wider and deeper relationships” with the Cuban, Colombian, Venezuelan and Puerto Rican communities of Florida - particularly in South Florida.
