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

"He is desperately trying to hold on to something that no longer exists".
"It is sad and embarrassing that Bill Nelson would resort to these low tactics after the voters have clearly spoken", said a statement from the Scott campaign Wednesday.
Democrats, meanwhile, voiced uncertainty about the prospects of Secretary of State Ken Detzner, a Scott appointee, overseeing a complicated and legally fraught process involving the fate of his boss. Trump tweeted, "Mayor Gillum conceded on Election Day and now Broward County has put him "back into play". The initial count of votes has not yet been completed, as ballots in these populous, Democratic-leaning counties are still being counted. Today the Florida Department of Law Enforcement stated, "This morning we spoke with the Department of State and they indicated they had no criminal allegations of fraud".
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".
State law triggers a recount if the difference in a race is within 0.5%.
"I will not sit idly by while unethical liberals try to steal this election", Mr Scott said.
Florida faced the prospect of recounts in the razor-thin races for governor and U.S. Senate, potentially prolonging the battle over two of this year's most-closely watched campaigns. In the Senate race, Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, is ahead of incumbent Sen.
Now a judge has agreed that Broward has violated the law and given them a few hours to rectify this, exactly as Rubio, Rick Scott, and the NRSC claimed.
There were two recounts in local races afterwards.
"Democrat lawyers are descending on Florida", Sen.
The Florida senate campaigns were one of the most expensive this election season, with over $96m (£73m) spent in total. It now says vote-by-mail ballots are completely reported.
"This serves as an outright disenfranchisement and burden on the right to vote", Marc Elias, a lawyer with the Nelson campaign, told reporters during a conference call Friday. Florida a state with a tradition of recounts, is in for another political storm.
Three days after the election, Broward County says ballots are still being counted, despite many other counties being able to finish very soon after election day.
"Tonight, I am asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate this immediately and I am considering every single legal option available", Scott concluded. "But you know what?"
"It is not appropriate for the governor of any state to suggest that he's going to use the power of the state to interject", Elias said.
Elias said he's concerned that a third of the votes in the Florida Senate race are still unknown.
More than 48 hours after the country concluded the midterm elections, it's still unknown who will be Florida's next U.S. senator, governor and agriculture commissioner, or how long it will be before those pronouncements can be made. Every vote that was legally and verifiably cast prior to the polls closing at 7 p.m. on Tuesday should of course be counted.
Scott carried a larger lead Tuesday night, but continues to see it dissipate as more votes come in.
The Florida governor's race appeared to be all but settled Tuesday night when Gillum conceded to DeSantis.
