President Trump won West Virginia’s five Electoral College votes Tuesday, securing a victory in one of the friendliest states for the president.

The Associated Press called the race just after 7:30 p.m. EST.

Gov. Jim Justice (R) and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R) both won reelection as well.

The Mountain State was never anticipated to be competitive in the presidential race after Trump won by his biggest margin there over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016, besting her by more than 40 percentage points.
