In a closely watched race, President-elect Joe Biden is the apparent winner of Georgia’s presidential race, NBC News projected Friday.

The projection came six days after the former Democratic Vice President Biden was projected as the winner of the national presidential race over the Republican incumbent, President Donald Trump.

Georgia has 16 Electoral College votes. Though Trump won Georgia by more than 5% in 2016, polling averages had indicated that Biden had a chance to win the state.

No other Democratic candidate has won the state since 1992.

Joe Biden now has 303 Electoral College votes to Trump’s 232.
