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

Regarding the Senate race between incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson and Republican Rick Scott, Trump alluded to the massive difference in the vote count that occurred between Tuesday night and Thursday evening. But since then, the Republican Ron DeSantis' lead has fallen to a margin of 0.44 percentage points, just below the automatic recount threshold.

A Florida supervisor of elections who was ordered to turn over any duplicate, "overvoted" or "undervoted" ballots by Saturday morning has requested an emergency hearing and filed for an extension, a move that's been condemned by Republican Rick Scott's campaign as "embarrassing and unacceptable". The office is under state monitoring.

In addition, protesters took to the sidewalks outside the county's election offices in Lauderhill to demand the ouster of Brenda Snipes, the supervisor of elections in Broward, who has faced a string of accusations over the last decade over mismanaged elections.

Florida is tied with NY for the third-highest number of Electoral College votes (29), so its political landscape will have significant influence on the presidential election in 2020, when President Donald Trump is expected to seek re-election and the Democrats will try to unseat him.

According to the Sun Sentinel, an unusual pattern has emerged in Broward County, where many more people voted in local races than the U.S. Senate race, when the trend is typically the reverse. That year's recounts in Broward and other counties were halted by the US Supreme Court, and George W. Bush defeated Al Gore by 537 votes in Florida, giving him the edge in the electoral college and handing him the White House. Bill Nelson (D-FL) and Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) as the two sides prepare for a possible recount.

Andrew Gillum - with his wife, RJ - is the state's Democratic nominee for governor.

He also points to 10,000 ballots that he says remain to be counted in Palm Beach County, another Democratic bastion. Republicans expanded their two-seat advantage in the Senate. Not just because of the fact that Franken was getting sworn-in, but I remember Leader Reid looking up at us, Sen.

Protesters have gathered outside the headquarters for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections as the county works to finish counting an unspecified number of votes from the midterm elections.

On Friday, West Palm Beach Circuit Court Judge Krista Marx granted an injunction ordering Bucher to submit "over-voted" and "under-voted" absentee ballots to the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board for public review of each vote before they are counted.

Mr Trump said on Friday he would send his lawyers to Florida "to expose the fraud", calling the Nelson campaign's recount lawyer Marc Elias an election stealer. This is something that nearly every supervisor of elections, 65 out of 67, were able to get all of this information right in a matter of hours. He accused Republicans of falsely claiming voter fraud simply because the margin had changed.

But Broward County is still counting early votes "60 hours after that deadline", and it's the only county in Florida to do so, Rubio tweeted. In a call with reporters on Friday, Elias jokingly thanked Scott for the free publicity. Those very votes may end up deciding who becomes the next governor of Florida, which explains why the woman supervising the election there has come under fire by Republicans.
