Not So Fast: Scott-Nelson Senate Race Could Require Recount

MSNBC screengrab showing governor's race'results

In the Senate contest that Scott was running in, Democrat Bill Nelson was trailing by "about 15,000 votes, a margin of 0.18 points".

Democrat Nikki Fried clings to a lead of.04 percent over Republican Matt Caldwell in the race for the Cabinet post of agriculture commissioner, or 2,915 votes.

Those recounts were halted by the US Supreme Court, and George W. Bush defeated Al Gore by 537 votes in Florida to win the presidency.

Votes are still being tallied in Broward and Palm Beach counties, which went overwhelmingly for Gillum and Nelson.

"He himself said that as ballots are being counted, it is tightening. Our campaign, along with our attorney Barry Richard, is monitoring the situation closely and is ready for any outcome, including a state-mandated recount". But recounts can lead to surprising results.

The tight races underscored Florida's status as a perennial swing state where elections are often decided by the thinnest of margins.

Scott appeared on Sean Hannity's show on Fox Thursday night.

"We do not have an active investigation", Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said.

In separate complaints, the Scott campaign accused Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes and Palm Beach County elections supervisor Susan Bucher of withholding details on voting tabulations, according to the report.

In the lawsuit, Scott and the NRSC allege that Snipes is "unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed, and how many ballots remain to be canvassed".

Elias opened a call with reporters on Friday l by highlighting how the split between Scott and Nelson has shrunk since Election Day and confidently said he believed, after all votes are counted correctly, Nelson would prevail the victor.

Donald Trump emerges from midterm elections with no regrets
Libby said Democrats already were beginning to start conversations about how they would make good on their promises. The president may say he wants "unity and peace and love" - but it's clear it will have to be on his terms.

With the recount odds growing every minute, Scott blamed Florida election officials in two Democratic-leaning counties for tampering with the vote by counting indiscernible ballots in favor of Democrats, and other transgressions. Under state law, a recount is triggered when the margin is 0.5 percent or less.

The official certification of the elections is to take place November 20, when the state's elections canvassing commission meets.

"Concerned citizen sees ballots being transported in private vehicles & transferred to rented truck on Election night", Canova wrote in his tweet that contained the video.

The county has not answered questions about its process and how many votes it has left to count. At that time, the "under vote" ballots could be sidetracked and set aside for examination by hand in the event a hand count is necessary.

In the House, the Democrats won two seats back from the Republicans with their candidates Debbie Mucarsel-Powell and Donna Shalala.

As of Thursday afternoon, U.S. Sen. "Nelson will prevail in a recount", he said. "That seems to happen about half the time".

Gillum, who had conceded Tuesday night before DeSantis' margin narrowed, now says his campaign is preparing for a recount. Nelson's attorneys said there could also be problems with the machines.

"And they're really actually way too nasty", he said. "That under-vote doesn't make sense".

Nelson is hoping for a blowout in Broward County to push him over the edge for re-election.

The deadline to provide that information to the voter's county Supervisor of Elections Office was 5 p.m. Thursday. The latest vote totals showed that roughly 25,000 Broward County voters who cast a ballot for governor skipped the U.S. Senate race. "The ones that are accepted will all be opened and we'll tabulate those tonight to add to the count". The Senate candidates appeared on the Broward ballot before the candidates for governor.

The Canvassing Board moved quickly through the ballots, rejecting just two out of the first 210.
