Gov: GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis is elected governor of Florida
10 November, 2018, 07:11 | Author: Mable Gonzales
The two top races in the state, for governor and senator, seem likely to go to recounts, with less than.5 percent separating the Republican and Democratic candidates, which automatically triggers a new machine count under Florida law.
Florida requires an automatic machine recount if the candidates are within half a point of each other - and a hand recount if the diffence between the candidates is less than 0.25 percent.
If, after the machine recount, a 0.25 percent margin remains separating the candidates in their respective races, then a manual recount would be ordered with a November 18 deadline to ensure all overseas ballots are in and available to be counted.
The campaign says it's monitoring the situation and preparing for a possible state-mandated recount.
"This will be the first real statewide recount if we get that far that's ever occurred", said Florida State Association of Elections Supervisors President Ron Labasky.
Nelson lawyer Marc Elias said Scott was using his official position to try to influence the election.
Scott then filed a lawsuit against Broward Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes and held a press conference to announce that he'd ordered a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation into the beleaguered politician.
The developments in Broward continue as Democrats mount an increasingly aggressive posture and look toward a statewide recount.
Should that count show DeSantis with a margin of less than 0.5 percentage points, triggering a recount, AP will retract its call for DeSantis.
"You actually can not predict which way the shift is going to be", said David O'Brien, an attorney with FairVote.
DeSantis said one area where he might unite Floridians will be behind an effort to address the problems of toxic algae and red tide and on moving forward with plans to restore the Florida Everglades.
Scott's campaign has said Nelson should concede the race rather than push for a recount. "Democrats will take every step to ensure that every single ballot is counted and we will be pursuing a recount in Nikki Fried's election for the Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs".
Scott slammed the supervisors of elections in Palm Beach and Broward counties and said liberals in the two counties are trying to steal the election. He has benefited from the support of President Trump, who has held multiple rallies to back his campaign, and current governor Rick Scott. They reminded Bucher that if she is not able to meet a recount deadline, the county's most recent unofficial results would be counted instead.
The South Florida Sun Sentinel said it analysed voting patterns and found that of Broward ballots already counted, 24,700 residents voted for a governor candidate but did not pick a candidate for Senate.
"I believe Sen. Nelson will prevail", Elias said. "And they refuse to disclose # of ballots they have left". Florida voters fill in paper ballots by hand using a pen and no longer cast the punch-card ballots that produced the infamous "hanging chads" in the 2000 presidential election. "We do not let people seize ballots when they think they're losing". Thousands of vote-by-mail ballots were discovered uncounted the day after the election.
"We all know what is going on. their goal is to keep mysteriously finding more votes until the election turns out the way they want", Scott said.
