Rick Scott wins first election lawsuit

Rick Scott wins first election lawsuit

Scott is now ahead of Nelson by about 15,000 votes.

Rudy Giuliani, the president's lawyer, alleged in a series of tweets that the county was "creating" votes and that a person would have to be "naive, even simple minded not to recognize" that Democrats regularly engage in voter fraud.

Scott's comments came as his campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee filed a lawsuit against Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes.

"It's unacceptable that SOE Susan Bucher says she will not comply with the court order to submit overvotes and undervotes to the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board for review", it read.

In fact, the most significant and clear error by Broward County election officials-designing a ballot that may have led more than 20,000 voters in an overwhelmingly Democratic congressional district to not vote in the Senate race at all-almost certainly benefited Scott.

"We do not have an active investigation", Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said. Nelson campaign spokesman Dan McLaughlin issued a statement saying that all votes should be counted accurately and that Scott's action "appears to be politically motivated and borne out of desperation".

While en route to France for ceremonies marking the end of World War I, Trump's tweet storm included criticisms of Florida elections officials and allegations of fraud. A judge sided with Governor Rick Scott in his request.

Two Democratic candidates, Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia, were aiming to become the states' first African-American governors, but the races were tilting in favour of their Republican rivals.

Gillum is "ready for any outcome, including a state-mandated recount", she added.

Those recounts were halted by the US Supreme Court, and George W. Bush defeated Al Gore by 537 votes in Florida to win the presidency.

Broward County was still counting early voting and vote-by-mail ballots Friday.

In a machine recount, all completed ballots are re-fed through ballot-counting machines to try to confirm the original, unofficial counts.

In a frantic effort to make sure every possible vote is counted, dozens of volunteers on Friday converged on a warehouse-turned-phone bank on Atlanta's east side.

DeSantis declined to discuss prospects for a recount, telling reporters he was "very proud to be elected".

"It's worth taking the time and doing it right", she said.

The news stood in stark contrast to the apparent posturing of the opposite by Republican officials who were complaining that Snipes, who is overseeing vote tabulation, was working to give votes to Democratic candidates in the Senate and gubernatorial elections.

On Friday he unleashed, insulting members of the press as he tossed out falsehoods about his top law enforcement officer and unverified conspiracy theories about election fraud.

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. "We believe that at the end of this process that Senator Nelson is going to be declared the victor".

The legal challenge confronts a Florida law that requires county election officials to double check signatures of voters who cast provisional and mail-in ballots, and reject any that don't match state records.

In yet a third statewide seat - the Cabinet position of agriculture commissioner - the candidates were separated by 483 votes out of more than 8 million cast - a margin of 0.006 per cent.
