    TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's campaign Thursday conceded Florida's 29 electoral votes to President Barack Obama.

    "The numbers in Florida show this was winnable," Brett Doster, Florida adviser for Romney, told The Miami Herald. "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."

    Hey! They can't call Florida yet...we still have people in line waiting to vote!!

    (just kidding)

    Seriously, we do have issues here and if it weren't for the 10 page ballot in Miami-Dade County, the vote counting would have ended a long time ago.

    I don't know if they do this in all counties in Florida, but what we have initiated in Central Florida is to have some of the "down the ballot" races decided in our August primary. That way, the school board, judges, seats on the Port Authority and all that crap that clogs the ballot is decided, over and done with.

    Not all of Florida counts slow. Orange County (Orlando) generally has over 90 percent of votes counted within an hour to 90 minutes after the polls close.

    Just for the record, the much talked about "swing" part of the state, the I-4 corridor (encompassing Volusia, Seminole, Orange, Osceola, Polk and Hillsborough Counties) is no longer a toss-up. President Obama easily won the three most populated areas by wide margins. Only Volusia (Daytona Beach) and Polk (redneck-ville) went for Romney. Orange and Osceola were well over 60 percent for Obama.

    That's why we call it Flori-DUH.


    Statewide elections fall under the Secretary of State's office and that is no longer an elected position here. Ken Detzner, our current Secretary was appointed by Toxic Rick Scott.

    My idea is to have an independent, nonpartisan body to supervise and run statewide elections here. And we need to have a federal mandate on early voting beginning 14 days before election day...in all 50 states.

    One nice thing is, from what I have heard, the Department of Justice did not have to get involved in disenfranchisement cases---at least in my area
