Florida braces for election recounts, starting with senate race

All Eyes on Florida's Gubernatorial Race: Will Florida Go Blue?

As New Times noted yesterday, the person in charge of handling such a recount is none other than Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, a Scott appointee who has been repeatedly accused of hatching schemes to prevent young people, Democrats, and people of color from voting.

Gillum, who leads by more than four percentage points in a polling average, said a victory by him would "send a message" to President Trump and to rival Ron DeSantis after a bitter race. If the margins remain under the 0.5 percent threshold, recounts must be ordered under state law.

The Senate race is already likely headed to a machine recount, which is triggered when the margin is less than 0.5 percentage points. He has also criticized Gov. Rick Scott (R) for opposing Medicaid expansion.

This has been considered one of the most controversial elections after the passing an "exact match" policy, which requires voter details to match information on the state's database. But so far, they have only tabulated 665,688 ballots in the Senate race. But the actual timeline for a full, manual recount - which has never happened in Florida, even in 2000 - is unclear.

But Scott campaign spokesman Chris Hartline called Elias a "hired gun" and added, "for Bill Nelson, the task is getting the "win" ...no matter what".

"I still believe and I still trust the voters".

Republican Ron DeSantis, a former U.S. Representative backed by President Donald Trump, will be Florida's next governor, earning 49 percent of the vote on election night.

Now the vote margin is within striking distance of an automatic recount, and both parties are bracing for it.

2 bound bodies found in NYC were missing Virginia sisters
They were found with "no obvious signs of trauma", and were pronounced dead at the scene, according to New York City Police. Investigators say it is too early to determine if any crime occurred or if their deaths were caused by suicide.

Gillum also spoke to the crowd about the issues that caused him to run for office and said his message to Trump and DeSantis is clear, "The politics of hatred and separation have come to an end". The day after Gillum won the Democratic primary, DeSantis said Florida voters shouldn't "monkey this up" by electing Gillum. In the months leading up to the election, Gillum was projected to win the gubernatorial bid.

In the Agriculture Commissioners race, Caldwell's margin of victory now sits at 0.06 percent.

The Tampa Times reported Thursday afternoon that the gubernatorial race in Florida is now within "recount range".

Before then, election canvassing boards in each county will review provisional ballots to determine if they are valid.

But that analysis relied on models that estimated voter turnout, and not on outstanding ballot data from local county election offices, the Miami Herald reports.

Pasco, the state's 11th most populous county, had 130 provisional ballots on Tuesday, Corley said.

Gillum's campaign said it was monitoring the tightening result in the governor's race.

Yet, when Hill arrived at the polling station near her Florida home, she learned her name had been removed from the rolls and was thus given a provisional ballot.
