Kerry Concedes Race [Updated -3-]

Breaking: Fox News Channel is reporting that Kerry has called President Bush to concede.

Story at Fox.

News of the phone call came at 11:10 a.m. EDT Wednesday. Earlier in the morning, the Bush campaign declared victory, despite claims by Kerry’s campaign that the fight is not yet over in Ohio.

Update: Reports are that he will officially concede at 1pm.

Update:

Congratulations, Mr. President,” Kerry said in the conversation described by sources as lasting less than five minutes. One of the sources was Republican, the other a Democrat.

The Democratic source said Bush called Kerry a worthy, tough and honorable opponent. Kerry told Bush the country was too divided, the source said, and Bush agreed. “We really have to do something about it,” Kerry said according to the Democratic official.

Kerry placed his call after weighing unattractive options overnight. With Bush holding fast to a six-figure lead in make-or-break Ohio, Kerry could give up or trigger a struggle that would have stirred memories of the bitter recount in Florida that propelled Bush to the White House in 2000.

More:

A Democratic source said Bush called Kerry a tough and honorable opponent. The source said Kerry told Bush the country is too divided and that the president agreed.
The Democratic official said Kerry told Bush, “We really have to do something about it.”

Bush Declares Victory [Updated]

Bush chief of staff: “We are convinced President Bush has won re-election with at least 286 Electoral College votes” and popular vote.

Details, links, quotes as we get them.

Update, via Fox:

President Bush’s campaign declared victory in the 2004 presidential election at 5:45 a.m. EST Wednesday.

“I want to thank all of you for staying up so late with us and good morning,” White House Chief of Staff Andy Card told haggard supporters at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington. “We are convinced that President Bush has won re-election with at least 286 Electoral College votes.”

Although Iowa, Nevada and Mexico had not yet made their results officials, Card said the GOP camp was counting those states in its column. Card also declared victory in Ohio, despite claims by John Kerry’s campaign that the fight is not yet over in The Buckeye State.

“This all adds up to a convincing victory,” Card said. “President Bush decided to give Senator Kerry the respect of more time to reflect on the results of this election.”

Bush will make statement “later today,” Card added.

Report: Bush to Make Victory Speech, No Concession From Kerry [Updated]

With Ohio looming as a Florida redux, President Bush prepared to declare re-election victory in the wee hours of Wednesday and Democratic rival John Kerry refused to concede.

After winning Nevada and pulling within 16 electoral votes of the 270 required for a second term, Bush was laying claim to Ohio’s 20 over Kerry’s objections. “We will not base our decision on a concession,” said Bush adviser Dan Bartlett.

Ceding nothing, Kerry dispatched running mate John Edwards to tell supporters in Boston: “We’ve waited four years for this victory. We can wait one more night.”

[…]

“We will fight for every vote,” Edwards said, borrowing a line from Gore. Both campaigns considered sending political and legal teams to Ohio, already the scene of dueling lawsuits over provisional ballots.

Here’s the stat breakdown as of now:

OHIO
100% of Precincts Reporting
George W. Bush 2,777,645 - 51 percent
John Kerry 2,632,547 - 48 percent

NATIONAL
95% of Precincts Reporting
George W. Bush 51% 56,732,387
John Kerry 48% 53,004,905

From Time:

But unlike 2000 when Gore conceded only to take back his words, the Kerry campaign issued a statement earlier this morning saying that they would not give up until every last vote had been counted. “The vote count in Ohio has not been completed. There are more than 250,000 remaining votes to be counted. We believe when they are, John Kerry will win Ohio,” said Mary Beth Cahill, Kerry-Edwards campaign manager. The reason? The math is still a bit fuzzy, but with 99 percent of the precincts reporting, Bush held a lead of about 144,000 votes. The Kerry camp is banking that the still-to-be-counted provisional ballots can make up the difference and the long-time senator from Massachusetts was not prepared to give up the fight.

The Republican camp quickly fired back. On NBC, Rudy Giuliani told Tom Brokaw that Kerry’s chances in Ohio were slim and that the Senator should avoid a repeat of the month-long legal challenges that happened in 2000.

In Boston, John Edwards made at statement at 2:30am, Wednesday morning. “We’ve waited four years for this victory, we can wait one more night,” said Edwards. He went on to say: “John Kerry and I made a promise to the American people that in this election every vote would count and every vote would be counted. Tonight, we are keeping our word. You deserve no less.”

It's Not Over

MSNBC still has not called Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Wisconsin.

Kerry’s campaign is unwilling to concede, hoping that he would win Ohio’s 20 electoral votes when all the ballots were counted, which won’t happen for almost two weeks. MSNBC sums it up:

“We’ve waited four years for this victory. We can wait one more night,” Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina, the Democratic vice presidential candidate, told cheering supporters in Boston.

The Bush Campaign responded:

Bush Communications Director Nicolle Devenish called the Kerry campaign’s stance “desperate,” saying Kerry would have to win an unrealistic number of votes to capture Ohio.

“There’s no mathematical path to victory for Kerry in Ohio,” she said. “There aren’t enough votes there to alter the outcome of the re-election of George W. Bush.”

My Prediction: Bush Wins

      If there’s a single state that’s switched so far, I haven’t seen it.

      Florida has 94% of its vote counted, and Bush is ahead about 4.5%.  Ohio has only 60% of its precincts in, but Bush leads by over 6%.  And Bush is ahead 3% in national results.

      I say it’s decided: Bush has won.
