UPDATE: 2:50 a.m. EST — Multiple news networks early Wednesday called the 2016 presidential race for Republican Donald Trump. While Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton did not concede in a speech immediately after the election results were announced, she reportedly called Trump to do so and will deliver remarks later Wednesday.
UPDATE: 2:20 a.m. EST — Campaign chair John Podesta announced at a supporters party in New York City in the early hours Wednesday that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would not speak or concede just yet. The results showedthat the election was all but over after the Associated Press called Pennsylvania for Republican nominee Donald Trump.
"It's been a long night and it's been a long campaign, but I can say we can wait a little longer, don't you think?" he said. "They're still counting votes and every vote should count."
In a somewhat shocking upset over what polls predicted, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton saw her hopes of becoming president likely dashed by Republican Donald Trump Tuesday night into Wednesday. She's expected to address supports at the Javits Center in New York City after seemingly falling just short of becoming the first woman president of the United States.
Election night, as it usually does, came down to the vote in a number of key states with Trump picking up key victories in Florida, North Carolina and others. He seemed poised to push beyond the 270 electoral votes threshold needed to win the presidency.
Heading into Tuesday, Clinton appeared poised for a somewhat victory, which proved not to be the case at all. At the beginning of the week, data-driven website FiveThirtyEight gave the former secretary of state an about 65 percent chance of winning the election, according to its polls-only forecast. In the early hours Wednesday, prediction-makers like FiveThirtyEight and the New York Times' Upshot pegged Trump as the overwhelming favorite to win.
Clinton made a last-second push into the states that could possibly decide the election in the last few days leading up to Election Day. The former secretary of state made pit stops in Allendale, Michigan; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Philadelphia, among others. At a historically black church in Philadelphia over the weekend, Clinton attempted to appeal to voters by reminding them of Trump's many controversial remarks and the fact that white-supremacy groups appear to support the GOP candidate.
"This election, in many ways, is about what kind of future our country will have," Clinton said. "Will it be dark and divisive, calling up the specters of our past?"
In the lead-up to decision day, Trump dotted across the nation, holding rallies in Sarasota, Florida; Raleigh, North Carolina; Scranton, Pennsylvania; Manchester, New Hampshire; and Grand Rapids, Michigan, among other stops. His last second push appeared to have paid off.
