MADISON, Wis. -

CBS News has projected that President Barack Obama has won Wisconsin in Tuesday's election.

The win gives Obama the state's coveted 10 electoral votes.

Wisconsin voters were dealing with a wintry mix of rain and snow Tuesday. An inch or more of snow is forecast for northern Wisconsin, with cold rain to the south.

The Government Accountability Board predicted nearly 70 percent of eligible voters will cast a ballot in Wisconsin.
