Florida Recounts: How Recounts Work In Florida

Governors' races in the southern US states of Florida and Georgia had yet to be decided Florida midterm election LEGAL ACTION demanded as Republican warns of FRAUD

RNC Chairmwoman Ronna McDaniel isn't backing down as Democrats continue their efforts to steal Florida Governor Rick Scott's rightfully earned U.S. Senate seat. "Let's blame the Russians and demand an immediate apology from President Putin!" "Votes are coming out of nowhere", Scott said as his lead over Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson fell to 15,079 votes (down from 38,717 early Wednesday), for a margin of 0.18%, per the Hill.

In a news conference, Scott claimed Broward County announced there were 634,000 ballots cast on Election Day.

"So it has been over 48 hours since the polls closed, and Broward and Palm Beach counties are still finding and counting ballots, and the supervisors - Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher - can not seem to say how many ballots still exist or where these ballots came from, or where they have been", Scott said.

In Riviera Beach, the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board met Friday morning to review "anomalous" ballots not yet counted because of irregularities that prevented a machine-reading.

Scott's campaign separately filed a lawsuit demanding that the Broward County supervisor of elections be ordered to turn over several records detailing the counting and collection of ballots cast. Bill Nelson conceded Election - now he's back in play!?

In his statement, Nelson said he believes once all the ballots are counted, he will win the race.

Florida is once again at the center of election controversy, but this year there are no hanging chads or butterfly ballots like in 2000.

Scott, Florida's governor, is suing two of his state's counties - Broward and Palm Beach - asking for an investigation of the tens of thousands of votes trickling in days after the election, which have narrowed his lead enough to trigger a recount.

Trump later weighed in, tweeting Thursday evening: "Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach".

Nelson attorney Marc Elias, who has been involved in a number of recounts across the country, pointed to an ongoing count of provisional ballots and ballots that may not have been properly scanned. "I think that people have to look at it very, very cautiously".

"This information Supervisor of Elections should have already compiled and saved", one of his Scott's lawyers said to CBS Miami, "It should take 10 minutes to do". They substituted their own totally subjective standards in an effort to give Gore enough votes to make him president - and nearly succeeded. The race remains too close to call, with Nelson narrowly trailing Scott.

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

Lauren Groh-Wargo, Abrams' campaign manager, wrote on Twitter that if Kemp "cared about Georgians and being a legitimate [governor], he would wait until results are certified".

Many could be heard chanting, "Lock her up!" and "Bye bye, Brenda!" referencing Broward's supervisor of elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes, as they demanded election results. 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. Gillum conceded to his opponent, Ron DeSantis, on Tuesday, but as more votes have been counted the race has narrowed.
