It's not two days after the election and Florida Democrats are finally declaring victory for president Obama.
With Miami-Dade county still counting ballots, Obama leads Romney by about 52,000 votes.
The state of Florida was expected to play a huge role in the outcome of the election. Special attention was shown to even our area.
"The president came here, the former president came here, the first lady stopped by, all the campaigns and organizations," said political science professor Dr. Peter Bergerson.
According to the National Journal, both the Romney and Obama campaigns together spent nearly $110 million just on advertising in the state of Florida.
According to maplight.org, super PACs raised more than $20 million making it the highest across the nation.
With all the long lines and voter frustrations across the state, Governor Rick Scott now plans to make some changes.
"I am going to sit down with the secretary of state and see how our election laws are working and make sure we do the right thing," said Scott.
