President-elect Joe Biden is projected to win Georgia — adding 16 electoral votes to his lead over President Donald Trump, according to reports from multiple networks on Friday. 

Both CNN and NBC made the call on Friday afternoon, marking a surprising flip of the traditionally ruby red state which came into play as a battleground state in the 2020 presidential election. 

Georgia was among the last states to be called, more than one week after Election Day, bringing Biden’s tally to 306 electoral votes nationwide — far surpassing the 270 baseline that he crossed on Saturday when he became the President-elect. President Trump, who was projected to win North Carolina, has 232 electoral votes.

Although the votes do not affect the election’s overall outcome, Biden’s feat in Georgia means that he flipped five states won by Trump in 2016.
