With 97% of precincts reporting, Biden has 50% of the vote with 2,684,200 votes. Trump has 49% with 2,617,062. That's a difference of more than 67,000 votes.

Biden flipped Michigan back to Democrat after President Donald Trump flipped the state to Republican in 2016.

In 2016, Trump won Michigan by just over 10,000 votes.

With the call, Biden will likely need just one more win in a state to clinch the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.

Trump and his campaign are not going down without a fight, announcing Wednesday they filed a lawsuit to try and stop the count.
