Trump wins Florida in major blow to Clinton hopes

Donald Trump wins Florida in major blow to Hillary Clinton’s hopes.

Meanwhile, Clinton defeated her Republican rival in a hard-fought contest in battleground Virginia, US television networks reported on Tuesday.

Virginia has 13 electoral college votes and while the state's south leans Republican, its heavily-populated north -- which neighbors the capital Washington -- is staunchly Democratic, and helped put Clinton over the top.

At this time, Trump has 172 electoral votes while Clinton has 168.
