Gov. Mitt Romney has carried Sarasota County.
The results are in and Romney, the GOP challenger, has 53 percent of the vote to President Barack Obama's 46 percent.
With 99 of 99 precincts reporting, Romney has collected 110,110 votes in Sarasota County, with Obama taking 94,607.
While Romney won’t gain any precious electoral votes from Sarasota County alone, he can say he carried the county.
In 2008, the presidential race was neck and neck in Sarasota: Obama took 102,413 votes or 50 percent. McCain garnered 50 percent or 102,650 votes.
Rita Ferrandino, chairwoman of the Sarasota Democratic Club, said she was impressed with the turnout by the Democrat voters, but knew that it wouldn't be as close as the 2008 election.
Results are considered unofficial until they are certified by the state of Florida.
