WASHINGTON — A New England battleground state has gone to President Barack Obama. He won the four electoral votes at stake in New Hampshire.
Mitt Romney, meanwhile, has won in Utah, a state where he has ties. Romney was the organizer of the Salt Lake City Olympics.
Those results left Romney with 159 electoral votes, to Obama's 147.
Utah voters also re-elected veteran Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch to a seventh term. His Democratic rival, Scott Howell, made an issue of Hatch's age of 78.
In Massachusetts, Democrat Elizabeth Warren has defeated Republican Sen. Scott Brown in one of the most expensive races in the country. The two sides spent $68 million, even after banning outside money.
