Recounts possible in U.S. Senate, governor's races as margins shrink

Andrew Gillum Could Still Be Florida’s Governor As A Machine Recount Is Now Confirmed

Andrew Gillum Could Still Be Florida’s Governor As A Machine Recount Is Now Confirmed

Among other things, the infamous punch-card ballots are no longer.

That meant there was no candidate opposite Bush, but to the right of Gore was the ultra-conservative Reform Party candidate Pat Buchanan, who got 3,407 votes in the county - many of them probably intended for Gore, analysts said.

He was likely referring to Marc Elias, the lawyer Nelson's campaign has reportedly tapped to handle the recount effort, as Elias was also a lawyer for Hillary Clinton's campaign and was involved in commissioning that dossier of opposition research from Fusion GPS. Bill Nelson already are locked in a recount battle.

Florida law provides for automatic recounts when the margin of victory for the victor and runner-up for an office is equal to or less than 0.5 percent, according to Ballotpedia.org.

Absentee ballots from overseas voters that were postmarked by Election Day and are still trickling in also will be added to the unofficial results, Turner said, along with write-in votes on ballots. "Florida voted for Rick Scott!".

Trump tweeted Thursday night that "Law enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach".

This story has been corrected to show that Gov. Scott has asked, not ordered, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate elections offices in Palm Beach and Broward counties. In addition, they offered no explanation for why the alleged problems and continuing vote counts appear to be occurring only in precincts that traditionally skew in favor of Democrats. "We'll never know all that they did". Bill Nelson's reelection campaign - say there are still tens of thousands of as of yet uncounted ballots in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties, all of which are left-leaning.

Nelson's campaign released a statement saying Scott's action appears to be politically motivated and borne of desperation.

The lawsuit against Snipes in Broward was filed in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court by both Scott's campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

I understand that has caused debate but for me it is a small way of appreciating what he has given to his country. I thought the Podolski situation was a super night.

If the machine recount shows a less than one-quarter of one percent difference between the candidates, a manual recount is done of these over-votes and under-votes, and local canvassing boards call in counting teams to attempt to determine the will of the voter.

"What's going on in Florida is a disgrace", he said. A spokeswoman for the agency said there was no active investigation.

Republican candidate for Florida governor Ron DeSantis speaks during an event put on by the Police Benevolent Association in Palm Beach County, on October 3, 2018. "Maybe next, he'll start ranting that Russians stole the election from him". In others, voters had until 5 p.m. Thursday to submit proper identification.

Speaking in front of the White House on Friday, President Trump attacked Broward County and Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes for the department's continuing ballot-counting issues.

Gillum, who conceded defeat Tuesday night, sees new life in the shifting numbers.

If the margins hold through 12 p.m. Saturday, elections supervisors will begin the statewide machine recount process.

And now, two days after the election, the race between Gillum and Governor-Elect Ron DeSantis will nearly certainly go to a recount as well. If the margin of victory is equal or less than 0.5 percent, state law requires a machine to recount the votes.

If it's November in the Sunshine State, it must be time for a recount ... or two.

County canvassing boards must report their first unofficial results to the state by noon Saturday. The melee became known as "The Brooks Brothers Riot".
