(Newser) – Donald Trump has won Michigan's 16 electoral votes, reports AP. The Board of State Canvassers certified Trump's 10,704-vote victory on Monday, nearly three weeks after the election. The two-tenths of a percentage point margin out of nearly 4.8 million votes is the closest presidential race in Michigan in more than 75 years. Trump's win in Michigan gives him 306 electoral votes to Hillary Clinton's 232 and makes him the first Republican presidential nominee to win Michigan since 1988. Green Party candidate Jill Stein is expected to ask for a recount, and the Clinton camp has said it would support the effort if she does. Stein has until Wednesday, and Trump would have seven days to file objections to her request. (Read more Michigan stories.)
