Florida braces for recounts in governor, Senate races

Florida braces for recounts in governor, Senate races

However, Nelson did not publicly concede, instead having an aide tell supporters shortly after midnight that while many news reports were declaring Scott the victor, Nelson would have no statement until later Wednesday.

Campaigns are "divisive" and "tough", Scott said.

In a news conference, Scott claimed Broward County announced there were 634,000 ballots cast on Election Day.

Similar action has been taken in other states with signature match laws, most notably Georgia. He said he also directed the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to immediately investigate their conduct, and is considering "every single legal option available".

After the leads by Republican candidates began to shrink to levels that could force recounts, the president on Friday joined in the partisan attack against Snipes, tweeting in part that Broward County has "miraculously started finding Democrat votes".

In elections with a winning margin of 0.25 percentage points or fewer, the state requires a hand recount of ballots where machines didn't detect a vote.

Those TV appearances included one on CNN in which Whitaker suggested that the Mueller probe could be starved of resources. Whitaker is a former USA attorney from Iowa who founded a law firm with other Republican Party activists.

"Some believe that this is simply rank incompetence", Scott said. The race is headed for a recount, as are the contests for governor and agriculture commissioner.

With visions of hanging chad dancing in their heads, Democratic Party lawyers are arriving in two Democratic-controlled counties "to steal the election", charges Republican Sen. Rick Scott alleged that "left-wing activists" could be trying to "steal" his proclaimed victory in the race for U.S. Senate. The race remains too close to call, with Nelson narrowly trailing Scott.

While the Senate and governor races drew national attention, a Florida Cabinet seat also will likely have a statewide recount.

A judge found Broward County violated the constitution by not following open records laws and ordered election officials to comply by 7 p.m. on November 9.

He said Broward County election officials "have a history of violating the law".

"You see, we not only have to win elections, we have to win them with enough of a buffer that all the cheating that goes on doesn't affect the outcome", Levin said.

Midterms Usher Wave Of Young, Democratic Women Of Color Into House

"This results in a complete lack of uniformity", Elias said. He suggested something was awry because vote-counters were taking longer there than in other jurisdictions, and his thin lead has kept narrowing since Election Night. While the local races were all situated elsewhere on the ballot, only Senate and U.S. House of Representatives were located below the instructions, and in one district where there was no race for rep, the Senate race was the only one below the instructions.

Early voting and vote-by-mail ballots are still being counted in Broward County, while vote-by-mail ballots are still being counted in Palm Beach County. As the numbers tightened, Scott worriedly called for an investigation into those ballots. "Then he made some veiled threat or suggestion that he was somehow going to involve law enforcement", Elias said.

Left to right: Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, Sen.

Broward County District Court Judge Carol Lisa Phillips was, unsurprisingly, not impressed with this argument and ruled that the county must produce the voting records requested by Scott by 7 p.m. on Friday.

Scott filed a lawsuit against the Broward and Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections offices as his margin victory over Nelson narrows.

President Donald Trump is weighing in on the Florida Senate race, citing the possibility of election fraud.
