Donald Trump wins state of Oklahoma, gains 7 electoral votes in presidential race

Posted at 7:02 PM, Nov 08, 2016

Republican Donald Trump has won Oklahoma's seven electoral votes, defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton in a state that pundits dubbed "the reddest of the red" after President Barack Obama failed to win a single county in either of his presidential elections.

Polling stations closed at 7 p.m., but anyone still waiting was still able to vote.

Oklahoma has shifted sharply to the right over the past decade, with Republicans now controlling all statewide offices, all seats in Congress and both chambers of the state Legislature.

The most recent Democratic presidential candidates to win Oklahoma were Lyndon Johnson in 1964 and Harry Truman in 1948.

As the election came down to several states, Hillary Clinton supporters appeared sad as they packed the Javits Center in New York City.
