    With 99% of votes counted, Democratic challenger Joe Biden has taken a slim lead (about 20,000 votes right now) over President Donald Trump in the Midwestern industrial state of Wisconsin.

    Trump beat Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin by less than 30,000 votes back in 2016 in a major upset.

    Despite Biden's slim lead, the race remains too close to be projected.

    Wisconsin could be pivotal in determining who wins the White House.
