Florida chaos spells trouble for 2020 presidential election

Brenda C. Snipes Broward county supervisor of elections grimaces during a news conference updating the progress of voting throughout the county Tuesday Nov. 2 2004 at the Broward County voter equipment center in Fort Lauderdale Fla

It comes as Scott has warned of possibly "rampant fraud", two heavily Democratic counties continue to report new votes, and three top races in the state appear headed for recounts.

Meanwhile, Nelson's reelection campaign has filed a lawsuit against Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner over vote-by-mail ballots.

No one answered at Snipes' office late Thursday.

In Broward County, Circuit Judge Carol-Lisa Phillips set a 7 p.m. Friday deadline for Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes to turn over the voter information under Florida's open records laws.

But some Republicans, like Raschein, say they can't account for Scott's lack of apparent support in the Keys, noting, among other actions, his quick reaction in sending resources following September 2017's devastating Hurricane Irma.

"Well, it could be", Trump said when asked if the federal government could get involved, "because if you look at Broward, and Palm Beach to a lesser extent, if you look at Broward County, they have had a awful history". Broward was the setting for some of the most contentious debates over "hanging chads" and other ballot irregularities that determined the outcome of the 2000 presidential contest between George W. Bush and Al Gore.

"We will litigate until we have determined that every person's vote has been counted", Chandler said.

Scott's comments came as his campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee filed a lawsuit against Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes.

Florida is the definitive swing state in USA politics, and it's not uncommon for major statewide races to be decided by the narrowest of margins.

Under Florida law, a recount is mandatory if the winning candidate's margin is less than 0.5 percentage points when the first unofficial count is verified Saturday by Florida's secretary of state.

Murphy said on Twitter he was given a notice from the county that there was an "invalid signature match", and that they were therefore unable to count his ballot.

Trump faces investigation blitz from Democratic House of Representatives
For Pelosi, Trump's endorsement Wednesday could be just what she needs to push past the naysayers and help neutralize the critics. What that means for 2020 is not entirely clear, given that two of the senators and one of the governors elected were incumbents.

Local Republican groups in Arizona are challenging in court efforts by two counties to resolve issues with signatures on mail-in ballots.

The Associated Press has called the governor's race for DeSantis.

As the prospects of recounts in Florida's Senate and governor's races grew yesterday, he told reporters at the White House that "really bad things" were going on in a county whose untallied votes are crucial to both contests.

In 2003, about 58,000 ballots were reported missing and in 2004, her office was counting votes days after the election took place.

As every vote counts, more than 1,000 votes in Lee County will not be counted.

"Bill Nelson's entire campaign has been a fraud". Overnight Thursday for instance, the lead swapped in the senate race in Arizona, with Democratic nominee Kyrsten Sinema pulling slightly ahead of Republican Martha McSally.

Nelson didn't concede defeat in Tuesday's election, even after Scott declared victory, and has called for a recount.

A court in South Florida has been asked to intervene in the tight U.S. Senate race between Democratic U.S. Sen.

'We believe at the end of the day, Sen.

A state judge on Friday sided with Florida Republican Rick Scott in ordering that Republicans be granted "immediate" access to requested information about ballots in Broward County, amid explosive lawsuits against the county's top election official.
