The Associated Press, Fox News and Decision Desk HQ are officially projecting the Democratic Party ticket has carried the once deep-red state of Arizona.

The Arizona Republic also shows Biden as the projected winner with 99 percent of ballots in.

The AP and Fox called the state on Election Night, much to the chagrin of President Donald Trump. Decision Desk HQ has been more conservative in their calls. After a large release of data from Maricopa County, Biden is now up by more than 11,000 and there’s no pathway to victory left for Trump.

In 2016, Trump won the state’s 11 Electoral College votes by 3.5 percent points.

Bill Clinton and Harry Truman are the only Democrats to carry the state since the end of World War II.

The Associated Press called the race on Wednesday.

The state was also called by Fox News, which reportedly angered Trump.

What can the left expect from a Biden-Harris administration? Pretty much nothing

On Nov. 7 of this year, the United States let out a collective roar that rippled across the nation, resonating the crowds of blue-clad people swelling the streets and the squares, and causing buildings to tremble as those inside broke out the champagne and began to dance. The celebrations lasted long into the night. For those few precious moments, it felt as though a curse had been lifted, a nightmare abated. Trumpism had ground itself to a resounding and decisive halt and it seemed that political space on the left, and on the center ground, had finally begun to open again.
