Florida and Georgia prepare for recounts amid claims of irregularities

US mid-terms 2018: Florida senate race recount triggered

Scott's showing in the Keys contrasts with other Republicans running for statewide office in Monroe County, where, outside of heavily progressive Key West, tends to vote solid red.

The deadline for all 67 Florida counties to submit their first set of unofficial returns is Saturday at noon ET, according to the secretary of state's office.

Election Day was on Tuesday, but for races in a number of states, it's not over yet.

Scott sued Palm Beach Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher and Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes on Thursday night.

Mr DeSantis is now leading by 36,000 votes. "Every Floridian should be concerned that there may be rampant fraud happening in Palm Beach and Broward counties". The Nelson-Scott race, as of Friday afternoon, was within 0.18 percentage point, with Scott holding a 14,985 lead with 8.2 million votes counted. Shortly after, President Donald Trump tweeted that law enforcement was looking into another big corruption scandal, claiming "Florida voted for Rick Scott!".

The Florida candidates for Senate - current governor Rick Scott, a Republican, and Democrat Bill Nelson - were separated by just 15,000 votes on Friday morning, which could lead to a recount. Both Scott and Nelson sought to get the courts to intervene. "The supervisors, Brenda Snipes and Susan Booker, can not seem to say how many ballots still exist and where these ballots came from or where they have been".

This is the total of early vote, vote-by-mail, Election Day, and provisional ballots.

Scott also said Palm Beach County officials refused to provide information on the ballot count, and were illegally denying party officials access to the ballot counting areas.

How is it possible that Broward and Palm Beach counties today can not tell us how many ballots have not been counted, and that new ballots keep appearing to add to Democratic vote totals?

"Some believe that this is simply rank incompetence", Scott said. For all other races, county canvassing boards are responsible for ordering a recount.

And who knows, some Democrat searching for ballots for the current recounts in Broward and Palm Beach counties may hit the jackpot and "find" a dust-covered box in a broom closet with lost ballots from the 2000 presidential election.

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

"Right now the results are unknown, as to who has won", he said.

"It has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported", his campaign said in a statement, noting they are ready for a state-mandated recount.

Kemp holds about a 63,000 vote lead, with 50.3 percent of nearly 4 million votes.

7News cameras captured the chaotic scene after supporters of DeSantis' Democratic opponent, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, showed up in front of the Lauderhill building to demand that every ballot is counted.

Our media completely believe without evidence that Donald Trump engaged in a 30-year conspiracy with Russian Federation to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton, but have complete confidence in an election supervisor who earlier this year was found by Florida courts to have illegally hidden and destroyed ballots.
