Election night 2016 – LIVE updates

NATIONAL ELECTION UPDATES

3 A.M. UPDATE

Around 3 a.m. on Wednesday, Trump appeared in New York before a crowd of his supporters to deliver his victory speech. Clinton had called him moments prior to concede the U.S. presidency.

Despite three states still being too close to call, Trump had already accumulated 288 electoral college votes — more than surpassing the necessary 270 to win the seat.

“The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer,” Trump said at the rally in New York. “Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division. It is time for us to come together as one united people. It’s time.”

At the lowest point during the course of the tumultuous night, the Dow Jones sank  780 points. After Trump appealed to the country to “unify” in the early morning hours Wednesday, the market was doing slightly better.

Russian president Vladimir Putin called to congratulate Trump on the victory, as did U.S. president Barack Obama — who invited Trump to visit the White House on Thursday. Clinton did not deliver her concession speech until Wednesday afternoon.

Trump will take the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2017.

Richmond, Virginia is the home state to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, who held a rally with at the Richmond International Airport last night. Virginia was considered “solid red” until Barack Obama ran in 2008 and 2012. If Clinton does not take Virginia, it will be a contentious night for the party.

In Georgia, Republicans have carried the state since 1996 but their margin of victory have eroded in recent elections. Indiana is home to Trump running mate Mike Pence. West Virginia has voted red in each election since 2000.
