MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - NBC News has projected Joe Biden has won Georgia’s 16 electoral votes while President Donald Trump wins North Carolina’s 15.

According to NBC’s projected electoral count, Biden has 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232. It’s the same spread from the 2016 election when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton 306 to 232.

The Associated Press called North Carolina for Trump a short time after NBC.

Biden is already the projected winner of the presidential race. He’s spent the week since the election announcing his coronavirus advisory board and key roles in his administration.

President Trump has refused to concede, filing lawsuits in many battleground states and making unproven claims of election fraud.
