AP: Obama Has Won Florida

Barack Obama has won the state that bedeviled Democrats in 2000: Florida.

The Associated Press called the race in Florida, the first Southern state for Obama, around 11 p.m., just about the time that Obama was declared by networks the projected winner of the presidential race.

Vice President Al Gore lost Florida by just 537 votes eight years ago, preventing him from winning the White House.
