UPDATE: The most recent numbers give President Obama 303 electoral votes to Romney’s 206, with some results still to be determined.
President Obama pocketed a burst of battleground wins Tuesday night, bringing him into a near-tie with Mitt Romney in the electoral-vote count as key states remained too close to call.
The president’s biggest prize so far is Pennsylvania, a vital battleground where Romney made a late play for support. Obama also walked away with a win in the swing states of New Hampshire, Wisconsin and Michigan, Fox News projects.
The victory for Obama in Romney’s native state is a disappointment for the Republican nominee whose father was once Michigan’s governor.
