FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Broward County delivered the most stunning victory Tuesday night with Republican Sheriff Al Lamberti looking like he has been defeated in his bid for re-election by Democrat Scott Israel.

The Israel campaign declared victory around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night, but the Lamberti campaign said it was not going to concede until the final vote count was announced.

With 772 of 778 precincts reporting at 11:30 p.m., Israel had won 53.3 percent of the vote with 364,675 votes.

Lamberti captured 46.7 percent of the vote with 319,531 votes total.

Broward County has not said when it expects to get its final election results in due to the Election Day problems.
