The Associated Press has officially called the state of Florida for President Barack Obama four days after the general election, putting Obama’s electoral vote tally at 332 to Mitt Romney’s 206.

The Romney campaign had already conceded the state, which finished counting its votes on Saturday.

Florida officials said Obama received 50 percent of the vote to Romney’s 49.1 percent, winning by about 74,000 votes, according to the AP.

Obama had already clinched the necessary 270 Electoral College votes to secure a second term, regardless of Florida’s outcome.
