Florida — Four days after the 2012 presidential election, President Barack Obama can claim victory in Florida. The state finally finished counting all the votes Saturday and declared President Obama the winner. Florida election officials say the president carried 50 percent of the vote to Mitt Romney's 49.1 percent, a difference of about 74,000 votes. The president had enough electoral votes to win re-election on Tuesday without Florida. Moving Florida into the blue column now increases the president's electoral vote total to 332 compared to Romney's 206.
