IT’S OFFICIAL: Florida Races Head to Recounts After Broward County Produces Thousands of Ballots Post Election
The Florida Secretary of State ordered a recount of the Senate and Governor races Saturday afternoon, reported the Associated Press.
Broward and Palm Beach counties have been manufacturing ballots since Tuesday night.
Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes produced THOUSANDS of ballots after the polls closed earlier this week as Democrat lawyers descended on Florida to steal the election.
Here we are again…Florida is officially heading to a recount.
The Florida secretary of state is ordering recounts in the U.S. Senate and governor races, an unprecedented review of two major races in the state that took five weeks to decide the 2000 presidential election.
Secretary Ken Detzner issued the order on Saturday after the unofficial results in both races fell within the margin that by law triggers a recount.
The unofficial results show that Republican former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis led Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum by less than 0.5 percentage points, which will require a machine recount of ballots.
In the Senate race, Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s lead over Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson is less than 0.25 percentage points, which will require a hand recount of ballots from tabulation machines that couldn’t determine which candidate got the vote.
ALL Florida counties met the latest deadline on Saturday at noon to turn over their election totals.
Governor Rick Scott leads Sen. Nelson by 12,562 votes after three days of of Broward and Palm Beach County ballot manufacturing operations.
This is down from his 80,000 vote lead on election night.
Because of ballot stuffing, a Democrat now leads the race for Agriculture Commissioner in Florida.
