Good Morning, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
Apparently, the wait for the new President- Elect isn't over.
UNOFFICIAL results from the Florida recount show George W- Bush the winner.
But authorities say it'll be at least another week before we know for sure who has won the election.
And an injunction from a Florida judge may delay the decision even LONGER.
Jennifer Jones joins us now from West Palm Beach with an update.
