Rick Scott’s Investigation Request Has Already Been Denied

Florida Gov. Rick Scott addresses his election night party in Naples Florida where he had declared victory Tuesday over inc Marco Rubio: Democrats Are Trying to Steal Florida Senate Race by Counting All the Votes

Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott continues to erode, with the term-limited governor now holding a.18 percent lead, Nelson's campaign has filed a lawsuit challenging a state election law.

Plessinger went on to say that because of the message from the Department of State, her agency is not actively investigating anything related to the election, including the officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

"Tonight, Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Buchar announced that she is refusing to comply with a court order to submit overvotes and undervotes to the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board for review under the court-ordered deadline", Chris Hartline, Scott for Florida Spokesman, said in a statement. "I will not sit idly by while unethical liberals try to steal this election from the people of Florida", Scott added, though he offered no proof to back up his claim.

Scott now leads Nelson by only 15,000 votes, well under the threshold for an automatic recount to be triggered under state law. U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., sharply criticized what he described as Broward elections officials' poor handling of the official ballot count.

"Every Floridian should be concerned there may be a rampant fraud happening in Palm Beach and Broward counties", Scott said Thursday.

Sarah Revell, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of State, said she didn't know of any other recount in a governor or Senate race in state history. He conceded to Republican Ron DeSantis on Tuesday night, though the race has since tightened.

As of Wednesday morning, DeSantis led Gillum by 43,039 votes out of almost 8.2 million cast, or a difference of 0.526 of a percentage point.

Polls open across ME with high turnout predicted
Early voting season ended Saturday in West Virginia, with Northern Panhandle counties posting strong turnout numbers. Keep in mind, if there's a large turnout, voters might be required to wait before casting their ballots.

The automatic recounts are a result of changes made after the 2000 election, when Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris opposed a recount in the presidential race between George W. Bush and Al Gore. A recount is mandatory if the winning candidate's margin is less than 0.5 percentage points. The Florida race may be headed for a recount and both parties were girding for legal challenges.

"As soon as Democrats sent their best Election stealing lawyer, Marc Elias, to Broward County they miraculously started finding Democrat votes", he said of Democrats' top lawyer on the case. And in Palm Beach County,"there are 15,000 new votes found since election night".

"You mean they are just now finding votes in Florida and Georgia - but the Election was on Tuesday?"

Scott noted that on election night, Broward County said there were 634,000 votes cast.

In his lawsuit, Scott accuses Snipes of being "unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed and how many ballots remain to be canvassed".

In speaking with Florida Politics, Murphy laid out how he discovered his vote would not be counted. "Nelson is going to be determined to be the victor and he's going to return to the United States Senate", Elias insisted during a Thursday morning conference call with reporters. "It is sad and embarrassing that Bill Nelson would resort to these low tactics after the voters have clearly spoken". The question is, "what is Governor Rick Scott going to do about it?"

Ashley Moody, Republican candidate for attorney general, received more than 52 percent of the Keys vote over her opponent Sean Shaw.
