Most of the remaining ballots are being counted Thursday in Miami-Dade County. The state's largest county had a last-minute wave of absentee ballots that needed to be processed. Combined with a tight race, that has delayed the announcement of a winner.
Obama leads the count 49.9 percent to Romney's 49.3 percent. That's a difference of about 47,000 votes out of 8.3 million cast.
If he claims Florida's 29 electoral votes, Obama would increase his victory margin in the Electoral College to 332 to Romney's 206.
