Romney Campaign Concedes Florida

"Though votes are still being tallied, President Obama is all but assured a victory in Florida because the lion's share of the outstanding ballots come from Democratic-heavy counties," the Miami Herald reports.

"Obama leads Republican Mitt Romney by 55,825 votes -- or 49.9 percent to 49.24 -- but there just aren't enough votes from Republican areas to allow the challenger to catch up."

"Romney's Florida campaign has acknowledged their candidate lost in Florida as well. Romney already conceded the national race after he lost the other battleground states."

The final Electoral College tally is Obama at 332 and Romney at 206.
