Obama Wins Florida

Nice of Florida to participate in the 2012 U.S. Presidential election.  We realize they're pretty much a foreign country anymore and not up to the same standards the rest of us have, but it's still ridiculous to be four days late with election results.  

Governor Jeb Bush, who has eyes on being the president in 2016, made sure the results for his state were well hidden, choosing to finalize the results on the off-news day Saturday so as to attempt to marginalize Obama's victory Tuesday. 

Anyway, Obama won Florida, adding to the landslide electoral vote.  It also meant Obama won all eight toss-up states this year.

Republicans Lose 6 Seats in U.S. House

There are still some run-off contests and challenges to be decided, but it appears that it is indeed a clean sweep--Republicans have lost the presidency, two seats in the Senate and 6 seats in the House.

Democrats also won the gubernatorial races, taking at least five with Republicans nabbing four.  There are two (Montana and Washington) that are still to close to call but the Democrats are leading those as well.
