And, thus, the 2012 presidential election comes to an unceremonious end…
Romney's Florida campaign has acknowledged their candidate lost in Florida as well. Romney already conceded the national race after he lost the other battleground states.
"The numbers in Florida show this was winnable," Brett Doster, Florida advisor for Romney, said in a statement. "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."
For what it's worth, I'm sure Karl Rove is huddled over a desk somewhere, pen in hand, writing furiously, trying to figure out a mathematical way in which 206 is more than 332. (Failing that, a way to make us all be living in 2004.)
