Rick Scott wins first election lawsuit

Recount likely in Florida Senate, governor races

Waiting for winners: Possible recounts loom in tight Florida gov, Senate contests

In a fiasco reminiscent of the presidential election in 2000, in which a 38-day dispute over Florida's ballot handed victory to George W Bush by 537 votes, Rick Scott, the outgoing Republican governor who is hoping to win a Senate seat, sued election officials and called for the count to be monitored by police. Scott now leads in the race, but his margin has narrowed as counties finish their counts of provisional and vote-by-mail ballots.

Likewise, while Rep. Carlos Curbelo lost his reelection bid for the 26th congressional district against Debbie Mucarsel-Powell in the district-wide vote count, Keys voters chose him with close to 54 percent of the vote.

"Well, it could be", Trump said when asked if the federal government could get involved, "because if you look at Broward, and Palm Beach to a lesser extent, if you look at Broward County, they have had a frightful history".

"I think what's happening in Broward County should concern every American, that Rick Scott came out of election night with 55,000 votes, a 55,000 vote lead over Senator Nelson and every day that has shrunk".

"Bill Nelson is trying to commit voter fraud in broad daylight and we won't let them". In Palm Beach County, where Nelson received 58.4 percent of the votes, the canvassing board was still counting vote-by-mail ballots.

"It has been over 48 hours since polls closed and Broward and Palm Beach counties are still finding and counting ballots", Scott told the gathered crowd at his Thursday night press conference. Trump tweets: "Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach".

Earlier Friday, Nelson lawyer Marc Elias criticized Scott for suggesting that he might get the state government involved.

But as vote counts updated Wednesday overnight - with elections employees running ballots through voting machines into the early morning - the margins shrank. She was researching the subject Thursday.

"As Nelson's legal team pushed forward, Scott's campaign quickly derided Elias as a hired gun" seeking to "steal" an election Nelson "already lost".

"If this is the cause of lost votes, it is incredibly frustrating that somehow the state hasn't gotten its act together to make sure ballots are designed in a way that don't cause lost votes", he told the Sentinel.

Kemp holds about a 63,000 vote lead, with 50.3 percent of nearly 4 million votes. Voters who cast provisional ballots had until 5 p.m. Thursday to provide verify their signatures with local elections officials, but the verification is not required.

Meanwhile, in the Arizona Senate race, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema has pulled ahead of Republican Martha McSally by about 10,000 votes.

With only about 15,000 votes separating U.S. Sen. 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.

The Florida Governor's race between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum also appeared headed for an automatic recount. It ended when the high court ruled the next month that Bush defeated then-Vice President Al Gore in the state by just 537 votes out of almost 6 million cast.
