Debbie Wasserman Schultz, sought to inspect physical ballots only to discover Snipes' office had destroyed the originals but kept digital copies.

Scott, speaking with Fox News' Dana Perino on "The Daily Briefing", said Friday "there's no transparency" to the vote count.

"In the 2016 Election I was winning by so much in Florida that Broward County, which was very late with vote tabulation and probably getting ready to do a 'number, ' couldn't do it because not enough people live in Broward for them to falsify a victory!"

Scott took aim at Elias for his past comments on behalf of Democratic clients who were ahead in their races.

"We want every vote counted", Mr Gillum said in a video posted to Facebook.

Her vote may have been rejected because she didn't have an ID the day she voted. While that margin, if it holds, would require a recount, DeSantis has mostly stayed out of the fray, saying he was working on plans for taking office in January. "When viewed in that arena, it's actually quite close". The claims were amplified by President Trump, without evidence, on Friday morning.

He had already used Twitter to accuse Democrats of sending "their best election-stealing lawyer" to the county and pledged "I am sending better lawyers to expose the FRAUD!"

Scott is running against longtime incumbent Democratic Sen.

Senator Marco Rubio, another Florida Republican, has also been an outspoken critic of the recount process, tweeting repeatedly about the controversy and earning Mr Trump's praise.

Snipes has a history of being involved in controversial actions involving elections.

More than 850 ballots still need to be counted in Lee, Collier, and Charlotte counties. The editorial board of Florida's Sun Sentinel on Friday said Snipes had lost "credibility" and should be replaced by Broward County.

Most of the focus had turned to Broward County, a Democratic South Florida stronghold that, mysteriously, according to critics, was still tallying early-voting and mail-in ballots on Thursday. "Since that time, it has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported", Gillum's campaign said.

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". "Florida voted for Rick Scott!". 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. The Nelson campaign did not respond to a follow-up question sent by the Free Beacon. Nelson's lawyer called that race a "jump ball" - though Scott's campaign urged Nelson to concede. Bill Nelson conceded Election - now he's back in play!?

Nelson is suing the Florida Secretary of State and demanding the state count every mail-in and provisional ballot deemed to have a so-called "signature mismatch".

Nelson's squad of lawyers, led by Marc Elias of the Democratic-connected Perkins Coie firm, means "steal" when they say "win".

"If I had to place a bet, I would say it is more likely than not that Sen".
