President Barack Obama has carried the key states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, media organizations projected Tuesday night.

Wisconsin was a highly coveted swing state, considered vital for Mitt Romney’s hopes. The Republicans also made a last-minute run to challenge in Pennsylvania.

CBS and CNN called Michigan almost immediately after the polls closed there. Fox and NBC have both called Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., was projected to defeat Republican challenger Tom Smith.  Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D- Mich., was called to defeat GOP foe Pete Hoekstra.
