FL Dems go for Obama



UPDATE: We're told the one absention was a mistake, as the person thought to have abstained actually did not vote. Several issues never made it to the floor in time to vote because of logistical issues.

Karen Thurman moments ago: "We are the great state of Florida, the Sunshine state, 833 miles of us from sea to shining sea. And we believe in one vote for one person (cheers), and we have cast those votes: The next president of the United States Barack Obama 136, Hillary Clinton 59, and one absention."

"Thank you Florida and we're so happy you're here."

Clinton had 105 pledged delegates, but released them.
