ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Four days after the election, President Barack Obama can finally claim victory in Florida.

The state finished counting its votes Saturday. Obama was declared the winner, giving him a 332 to 206 final margin in the Electoral College.

Florida officials said Obama had 50 percent of the vote to Romney's 49.1 percent, a margin of about 74,000 votes.

The win gave Obama victories in eight of nine critical swing states, losing only North Carolina. In addition to Florida, he won Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Virginia, Colorado and Nevada.
