JACKSONVILLE, Fla -- It took four days, but Florida has finally declared a winner in the state's Presidential race.
President Barack Obama took Florida by a thin margin, 74,000 votes. But what everyone wants to know is what took so long?
Both Democrats and Republicans agreed all eyes would be on Florida for this Presidential election. But no one suspected it would be because voters were stuck in long lines for upwards of eight hours and days would pass without results.
"Here's the positive, record number of people went out to vote. But we had long lines," said Governor Rick Scott Monday while in Jacksonville.
Governor Scott wants to get to the bottom of the voting debacle. He's calling for a review of the process.
"Like everything, anytime we do anything in the state I want to make sure we step back and say what did we do right, what could we have done better? So I want to review this, see why we had these long lines, because I want to make sure every single Floridian that has a right to vote gets out to vote."
This year, early voting hours were cut back. We asked the Governor if he thought that was the problem.
"The right thing happened in that we extended the hours per day which was really good because people could vote before work or after work," he told Action News.
He thinks the biggest issue was the state had such a lengthy ballot. But whatever the reason, he isn't completely surprised Florida took longer than most to call.
"Here's what we know about our state. Our states a swing state so our elections are going to be close. So if somebody won by 500,000 votes it wouldn't have mattered but we have closer elections here."
Governor Scott says bottom line, it is important to make sure every vote was counted accurately and that votes are diluted by someone who he says never had the right to vote.
