Marco Rubio: Democrats Are Trying to Steal Florida Senate Race by Counting All the Votes

But an election summary report sent out Friday afternoon shows incumbent Sen.

Razor-thin margins in bitter races in Florida and Georgia for the U.S. Senate and governor are raising the possibility of recounts and a run-off, potentially prolonging some of the most closely watched contests of the nation's midterm elections.

Scott holds a slim lead over Nelson in the race.

For demanding that Broward adhere to state law, Rubio was accused of to trying to stop some votes from being counted. Bill Nelson, said Scott's actions are apparently "politically motivated and borne out of desperation".

Elias said it isn't "appropriate" for Scott to initiate a law enforcement investigation into vote counting when the governor is on the ballot as a candidate for Senate.

Democrat Andrew Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, trailed by about 1 percentage point and fewer than 80,000 votes when he conceded Tuesday. She was researching the subject Thursday. Florida responded with a law requiring a statewide machine recount if the final result is within half a percentage point, and a hand recount if the result is within a quarter percentage point.

On Thursday, Gillum's campaign indicated it was "ready for any outcome, including a state-mandated recount".

DeSantis declined to discuss prospects for a recount, telling reporters he was "very proud to be elected". "And then the State will conduct an orderly recount".

"This is not like it was in 2000".

In the lawsuit, the Scott campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee contend the Broward elections office has been unwilling to disclose records revealing how many people have voted, how many ballots have been canvassed and how many remain to be canvassed.

Scott filed two lawsuits on Thursday against the supervisors of elections in Broward and Palm Beach counties, the Miami Herald reported.

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. "Since that time, it has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported", Gillum's campaign said.

President Donald Trump provided a lengthy commentary regarding the Florida elections mess during his flight to Paris on Friday, alleging "potential corruption" in Broward County as officials grapple with determining who won the Sunshine State's Senate and gubernatorial races.

Nelson and the Florida Democrats also filed an injunction against the state to get the vote-counting deadline extended.

Shortly after the 2016 election, Trump claimed there were more than three million illegal votes cast, but his own voter fraud commission disbanded over the summer after many governors refused to cooperate and the group was unable to provide any evidence to back up that claim.
