Clinton wins Massachusetts’ 11 electoral votes

Hillary Clinton has won Massachusetts and its 11 electoral votes.

The Associated Press projected the Democrat as the winner at poll close.

Clinton cruised to an easy victory over Republican Donald Trump in the mostly blue state, which hasn’t voted for a Republican for the White House since backing Ronald Reagan in 1984.

Among those in Massachusetts who backed Clinton was Liz Burg, a 22-year-old web designer in Cambridge.

Burg, a Democrat, called Clinton an “obvious choice.” She says she voted for her because “it would be awesome to see the first female president tonight.”
