Email News Alerts

Minnesota went for President Barack Obama for the second time, following his win nationwide.

While, pre-election polls offered conflicting views about whether Minnesota was in play in the presidential election, the president did will in Minnesota, collecting nearly 52 percent of the vote in incomplete returns.


Nationally, each candidate had about 49 percent of the vote late Tuesday, but news organizations counted 290 electoral votes for Obama, 20 more than needed.
