Cronkite News projects that Republican Mitt Romney has defeated President Barack Obama in Arizona.

Unofficial returns show Romney with an insurmountable lead over Obama.

While Democrats early on suggested that Arizona could go for Obama, the president faced long odds. With the exception of Bill Clinton, who was seeking a second term in 1996, no Democrat since Harry S. Truman has won Arizona’s electoral votes.
