Good Morning, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
The U-S Supreme Court has ruled in favor of George W- Bush.
In a late- night decision, the court ruled five to four to reverse Florida's court- ordered ballot recount.
Al Gore and running mate Joseph Lieberman are expected to comment on the court's decision later today.
Meanwhile, Bush spokesman James Baker describes the Republican as "Pleased and gratified" by the ruling.
Jennifer Jones has more now from Washington.

there's not enough time for a new recount that would meet constitutional muster. And without a recount, the current vote tally stands.

The justices ruled the court- ordered recount couldn't be finished by the deadline to choose Presidential electors and still pass Constitutional muster.
Meanwhile, Al Gore and running mate Joseph Lieberman are expected to comment on the ruling later today.
