Three days after the election, while most of the country has moved on with their lives, Florida remains technically in voter limbo.
Mitt Romney’s campaign officials here conceded on Thursday and the Obama campaign has claimed victory.
The state’s counties — overwhelmed by the amount of absentee and early voting ballots — still have not finished counting votes. Although the presidential race results will not be affected if Florida decides to lean blue or red, voters are curious to see who won the swing state.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that President Obama has the lead over Governor Romney, 49.9 percent to his 49.2 percent.
The country will have to wait one more day for the announcement of the official winner of Florida. The deadline for Florida’s counties to have their results in is Saturday at noon.
