Former VP Joe Biden wins New York

Democratic contender Joe Biden has won the presidential race in New York.
The former vice president defeated President Donald Trump to take the state’s 29 Electoral College votes.
New York is a reliably Democratic state, and it was widely expected that he would defeat Trump, the Republican candidate.
A range of offices are on the general election ballot, including Congress and the state Legislature.
The results of some more tightly-contested races might not be known for some time because absentee ballots won’t be counted for at least a week.
