Democrat incumbent Barack Obama has taken the key state of Pennsylvania with 20 votes the in US Electoral College, according to projections by CNN

As of 9:30 pm ET (4:30 am EET), Republican challenger Mitt Romney has a total of 152 votes in the US Electoral College, with 270 needed to clinch the US Presidency, while Obama has 143.

Without Pennsylvania Romney needs Florida and Ohio. Even if Romney wins Florida, he will still need to win Ohio.

No Republican has won the White House without winning Ohio. Expectations are that Florida won't be called for hours.
