The Associated Press called the GOP primary for Trump with roughly 10 percent of precincts reporting. The president led with roughly 83 percent of the vote at the time of the call, with former Massachusetts Gov. William WeldWilliam (Bill) WeldRalph Gants, chief justice of Massachusetts supreme court, dies at 65 The Hill's Campaign Report: Biden visits Kenosha | Trump's double-voting suggestion draws fire | Facebook clamps down on election ads Biden picks up endorsements from nearly 100 Republicans MORE trailing at just 12 percent.

Weld had hinged his long-shot White House bid on a decent showing in New Hampshire, saying that he could make waves if he was able to peel off a substantial enough portion of the GOP vote from Trump.

“If I got 20 percent, they’d be like, holy shit, what’s happening here?” Weld said in an interview with The Hill last month.

The results from the Democratic primary are still far from finalized.
