As of 7:30 p.m., Obama was projected to carry important states like Ohio and Pennsylvania. CNN has Obama at 207 of the 270 electoral votes needed to win. John McCain is at 135.

A CNN correspondent at the Biltmore Hotel at the big Arizona John McCain party said that officials with his campaign said they do not see a path to victory at this point.
