In Florida Senate Race, Razor Thin Margin May Lead To Recount

Democrats expected to pick up governorships but many races are too close to call

Bill Nelson campaigns in Orlando. DeSantis was elected governor on Tuesday, defeating Tallahasee Mayor Andrew Gillum in a close race. "There's not a lot of room for strategy", Richard said.

"We are going to ensure that every vote is counted", Freid tweeted last night.

In the governor's race, Democrat Andrew Gillum's campaign said Thursday it's readying for a possible recount.

In a statement Thursday, Gillum's campaign says it underestimated the ballots that still needed to be counted when he conceded.

Florida Republicans and Democrats are assembling red and blue armies of lawyers as the state faces an historic challenge of up to three statewide election recounts, all at the same time.

Adding to the drama, Scott called a press conference Thursday evening at the governor's mansion and declared that "there may be rampant fraud happening".

"I'm cynical", said Matt Schlapp, president of the American Conservative Union. "No ragtag group of liberal activists or lawyers from D.C. will be allowed to steal this election from the voters of this great state".

The Florida Secretary of State is telling election officials to prepare for a statewide recount.

Chaos erupted outside at the Broward Supervisor of Elections office in Lauderhill when an impromptu protest appeared ahead of Friday's canvassing board review of 200 provisional ballots. Among other things, the infamous punch-card ballots are no longer. They are due from each of the state's 67 counties by Saturday.

Six races are within the half percentage margin to trigger an automatic machine recount. The Elections Canvassing Commission would then meet November 20 to certify the results.

And like 2000, the counting process is becoming contentious.

But the shifts thus far all remain part of the first tabulation of votes.

Of those, only three resulted in a change in the apparent election-night victor - where the trailing candidate overtook the leading contender.

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.

The Arizona Senate race is also up in the air. Just 39,000 votes now separate the two men.

There were also issues surrounding uncounted votes in Broward during the August primary.

"What's going on in Florida is a disgrace", he said. Those were mostly "provisional votes" - votes cast by individuals who lacked the proper ID or wound up at the wrong polling place.

Even prior to Tuesday's election, DeSantis said he was putting together a transition plan for taking over from Scott, who leads in a U.S. Senate race that is expected to require a recount.

In Broward County, he said, there were already signs that ballots may have been improperly read by tabulating machines, which could be revealed with a recount. McSally is in a tight Senate race with Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema. That may be an indicator of machine problems, Elias said.

"Under votes" are likely to become rarer in the future as more counties switch to EViD operating systems, which let poll workers verify voters' information electronically when checking them in to vote. "That under-vote doesn't make sense". Those voters had until 5 p.m. Thursday to provide proof of identity. The race is headed for a recount, as are the contests for governor and agriculture commissioner. "We have been doing this quietly behind the scenes, not to be presumptuous, but just because you don't have enough time".

Miami-Dade Democrats issued an alert for volunteers to track down the more than 3,000 people who cast provisional ballots. "And, unfortunately, in this day and age they often spiral into outright demagoguery", DeSantis said. "He even said I was resurrected!"

Pot Stocks Surge on Heels of Midterm Election Results
Supporters of the marijuana ballot measure in MI expect legalization to bring in about $130 million more in tax revenue each year. Counting Oklahoma , where voters approved medical marijuana in June, three red states have taken that step this year.

But all eyes were on Broward County, which according to information published by the Florida Division of Elections has yet to report all its early voting and absentee voting totals.
