Donald Trump has officially won Michigan.

Michigan’s Board of Canvassers certified the results on Monday afternoon in Lansing. Trump won 2,279,543 votes (47.6 percent), according to the certified results — 10,704 more than Hillary Clinton’s 2,268,839 (47.4 percent).

Trump becomes the first Republican presidential candidate to carry Michigan since George H.W. Bush won it in 1988, breaking a six-cycle Democratic winning streak.

That adds Michigan’s 16 electoral votes to Trump’s already impressive tally of triumphs in the Midwest. Trump carried Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — states that had last voted Republican in 1988 and 1984, respectively — by margins only slightly larger than his advantage in Michigan.
