On Wednesday morning, Obama held a lead over Mitt Romney in Florida of just 50,000, according to the AP.
According to the web site run by Florida’s Secretary of State, Obama has 49.86 percent and Romney has 49.29 percent.
Unexpectedly long lines in Miami-Dade and Lee counties were reportedly to blame for the delay in calling the Florida race. Officials in Miami-Dade County still had 20,000 absentee ballots to count on Wednesday, the AP reported.
In addition to long lines, voters from around the state reported far fewer ballot machines and broken scanners.
Final results are expected Wednesday afternoon.
