Donald Trump wins Alaska, tally now 217


Washington, November 12

US President Donald Trump has won the closely-fought presidential election in the state of Alaska, winning three electoral college votes and taking his tally to 217.

Republicans have also retained the Alaska Senate seat, giving it 50 seats in the 100-member Senate of the United States. When the election was called in Alaska, Trump had received 56.9% of the total votes counted and President-elect Joe Biden from the Democratic Party with 39.1%.

Biden has already been declared winner of the November 3 poll with 279 of the 538 electoral college votes. Trump has refused to concede and has filed lawsuits. — PTI

Edge in Senate

The Alaska election results gave Republicans an edge over the Democrats in the Senate. Republican senator Dan Sullivan won his Senate re-election bid. This gives the Republicans 50 Senate seats, while the Democrats have 48. Two seats go to poll on January 5.
