Democrat Alex Sink conceded the governor’s race on Wednesday, the closest one in state history and the most expensive, making Republican Rick Scott the next governor of Florida.

“I’ve lived a long time and I’ve seen lots of ups and downs,” Sink told supporters in Tampa. “And I know that because of my stage in life that every morning we will wake up to a new day and to another day….The sun is shining on Florida. My greatest hope is the sun will continue to shine on the state of Florida.” Scott was scheduled to speak later Wednesday in Fort Lauderdale and begin making transition announcements.
