Dylan Stableford | Romney concedes Florida





While ballots are still being counted in the state of Florida, a senior adviser for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign told the Miami Herald on Thursday that they are effectively conceding the Sunshine State and its 29 electoral votes to President Barack Obama.

"The numbers in Florida show this was winnable," Brett Doster said in a statement to the paper. "We thought based on our polling and range of organization that we had done what we needed to win. Obviously, we didn’t, and for that I and every other operative in Florida has a sick feeling that we left something on the table. I can assure you this won’t happen again."

Florida would give the president a total of 332 electoral votes. Romney would finish with 206.
