AP closely monitoring Florida governor's race

Whoops MSNBC Called the Florida Governor's Race for Leftist Candidate Gillum a Day Early

An automatic machine recount is automatically triggered under Florida law if the margin between two candidates' share of the vote is with 0.5 percent.

Under Florida state law, a candidate running for office can declare victory if the margin of votes is greater than 0.5 percent of the total vote. DeSantis holds a lead of 38,613 votes out of more than 8.2 million ballots counted - a margin of 0.47 percentage points. Should the races meet the requirements for a recount at that time, every single ballot in the state will be fed into machines for digital tallying.

Gillum, the outgoing mayor of Tallahassee, conceded the race Tuesday night before 11 p.m. after results appeared to show him too far behind his opponent to make up the difference.

"It has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported", she said in a statement.

Gillum's campaign said it's monitoring the situation with an elections lawyer and readying for a possible state-mandated recount.

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio also called into question the fact that, days after the election ended, both Broward and Palm Beach Counties continue to apparently find more previously uncounted Democratic votes.

Gaetz, whose district is in Florida's Panhandle, also said the state should take over the Broward elections office.

Even prior to Tuesday's election, DeSantis said he was putting together a transition plan for taking over from Scott, who leads in a U.S. Senate race that is expected to require a recount.

Another freshman, point guard Tre Jones , chipped in with six points, seven assists and no turnovers in 30:42 on the floor. Barrett played like the No. 1 pick he's projected to be. "Really proud of my guys", Krzyzewski said. "And they responded.

Elections officials in Broward County, where Democrats have a large advantage, were still counting votes Thursday. He's the lone statewide Democratic officeholder in Florida. Unfortunately, Florida residents hadn't actually voted yet, leading viewers to speculate about what exactly was going on at the network.

Should that count show DeSantis with a margin of less than 0.5 percentage points, triggering a recount, AP will retract its call for DeSantis. Still, the state has never seen so many dead heats in one year.

The President said officials involved in the "phony dossier" about his campaign's contacts with Russian Federation are involved in the recount efforts.

Palm Beach County officials, however, had yet to counted mail-in or provisional ballots, according to the Florida Division of Elections website. Bill Nelson already are locked in a recount battle.

"I sincerely regret that I couldn't bring it home for you, but I can guarantee you this: I'm not going anywhere", he said during a tearful, 10 minute speech.

In Broward County, Circuit Judge Carol-Lisa Phillips set a 7 p.m. Friday deadline for Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes to turn over the voter information under Florida's open records laws.

"We could not be prouder of the way we ran this race", Gillum said Tuesday night at Florida A&M University, his alma mater. "We know it's not many". "And all of the sudden they're finding votes out of nowhere". "We believe that at the end of this process that Senator Nelson is going to be declared the victor and is going to return to the United States Senate". That increased the chance that all three will be subject to hand recounts of tens of thousands of ballots where voters chose no candidate or more than one candidate.

Political experts are hopeful that any recount won't be a repeat of the 2000 Presidential election. In the Senate race, Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, is ahead of incumbent Sen. Over votes are ballots in which scanners detected that voters marked more than one choice for Senate. At the same time, Snipes was at the voting equipment center in Lauderhill with the canvassing board reviewing questionable ballots.
