Florida election results are finally in after a long, grueling few days of counting absentee ballots. Republican candidate Mitt Romney's campaign conceded on Thursday afternoon that President Barack Obama won the state of Florida despite numbers that were previously too close to call.Reaction:
The concession came once Miami-Dade officials said early this afternoon that they had finished counting all the absentee ballots. "We're done," elections department spokeswoman Christina White said, after Miami-Dade elections workers stayed up all night last night to count the final group of 500 absentee ballots.
