New Jersey voters have given the state’s 14 electoral votes to Hillary Clinton.

Voters in New Jersey chose the Democrat over Republican businessman Donald Trump.

Clinton was heavily favored to win the state despite Trump’s former casino empire in the state and Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s strong support.

Clinton came to Atlantic City during the campaign to highlight Trump’s financial struggles, including multiple bankruptcies for his casino empire.

Trump did not campaign much in New Jersey, although he did headline a fundraiser for Christie to help pay off the debt from Christie’s failed presidential campaign.

Democrats have won New Jersey in presidential elections since 1992.
