On Wednesday morning, Obama held a lead over Mitt Romney in Florida of just 50,000, according to the AP. About 200,000 votes still had to be counted.

Unexpectedly long lines and absentee ballots were reportedly to blame for the delay in calling the Florida race. Even after counting ballots all night, officials in Miami-Dade County still had 20,000 absentee ballots to count on Wednesday, the AP reported.
