Mitt Romney’s campaign has admitted it lost the state of Florida to President Barack Obama Tuesday, according to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald.
President Barack Obama’s likely victory in Florida came thanks to a diverse coalition, but none were more powerful in that coalition than the Latino voters.
Much of the lengthy ballot in Florida was due to multiple state constitutional amendments that each required at least 60 percent support from voters to become law. The high threshold makes it nearly impossible for most initiatives to pass.
Despite calls to extend early voting hours in the state of Florida, Gov. Rick Scott has rejected the requests despite reports of record turnouts and long lines of voters at poll sites statewide.
Early voting is well underway across Florida, but in South Florida if you’re heading to the polls early, make sure to bring plenty of patience with you.
Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign has come under fire for airing false claims in commercials in Ohio, but his campaign is now targeting the Hispanic vote in Florida with ads linking President Barack Obama to Hugo Chavez and the Castro’s.
