Though New Hampshire was seen as a must for Donald Trump to win the presidency, but it's looking like he won without the Granite State. The Associated Press has yet to call the race, though it leans Clinton.

Meanwhile, the Senate race is still tight between Governor Maggie Hassan and incumbent Senator Kelly Ayotte. The Secretary of State of New Hampshire has certified the results, but there's still no call in the race. Governor Hassan has already declared victory, saying, "My focus will continue to always be standing up for the people of New Hampshire first. That's what my commitment is to the wonderful citizens of this great state moving forward."

Senator Ayotte has until Monday to file for a recount.
