(FOX NEWS) – Donald Trump took the early electoral-vote lead over Hillary Clinton Tuesday night, as the candidates each claimed big – albeit expected – state victories, but were locked in a tight race for numerous key battlegrounds.

It was too early or close to call a range of vital swing states, including Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, New Hampshire, Virginia and North Carolina.

While the outcome of those races is unclear, Fox News can project that Trump will win in Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. In Nebraska, one of just two states that does not use a winner-take-all system of awarding delegates, Fox News can project that Trump will win four electoral votes. It is too early to say who will win the final vote in that state. Trump earlier claimed projected victories in South Carolina, West Virginia, Kentucky and Indiana, where running mate Mike Pence is governor, as well as Alabama, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

Clinton, meanwhile, is projected to win delegate-rich New York. Clinton was projected to easily win her home state of Illinois, and is also projected to win New Mexico, Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Delaware and the District of Columbia. She already had won Vermont.

It’s also too early to project winners in perhaps the two most important battleground states of the hour – Arizona and Colorado.
