In the governor' s race, DemocratAndrew Gillum was 0.52 percentage points behind Republican Ron DeSantis, a margin of just less than 43,000 votes, just 0.02 percentage points away from a machine recount.
In response, Florida senator Marco Rubio chose to accuse the Democratic Party of conspiring with Broward County election officials to illicitly overturn the will of the electorate, and illegitimately install Bill Nelson into the U.S. Senate.
Scott held a lead of 0.21 of a percentage point over Nelson on Thursday afternoon. He suggested something was awry because vote-counters were taking longer there than in other jurisdictions, and his thin lead has kept narrowing since Election Night. "It's Lean-R", said Matt Isbell, a Democratic data analyst based in Florida.
"We've all seen the incompetence and irregularities in vote tabulations in Broward and Palm Beach for years".
Elias, a Democratic superlawyer who chairs the firm's political law practice, was retained by the Nelson campaign Wednesday after election night ended with the race too close to call. "Our campaign, along with our attorney Barry Richard, is monitoring the situation closely and is ready for an outcome, including a state-mandated recount".
The South Florida Sun Sentinel said it analysed voting patterns and found that of Broward ballots already counted, 24,700 residents voted for a governor candidate but did not pick a candidate for Senate.
County election officials have until noon on November 10 to report unofficial results to the state.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg out of hospital after fall
Yesterday, we learned that Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized after breaking three ribs in a fall in her office. It was then confirmed that she had broken her ribs. "Where can I donate a rib, or three?" tweeted one Ginsburg fan.
"Count every vote", said Gillum in a tweet posted just minutes after Gov. Rick Scott said he filed a lawsuit against Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes. "Mayor Gillum started his campaign for the people, and we are committed to ensuring every single vote in Florida is counted".
A spokesperson for Snipes told the Tampa Bay Times that Scott's action was a desperate move. "Maybe most of all the character of our country is on the ballot". If the margin of victory is equal or less than 0.5 percent, state law requires a machine to recount the votes.
Saturday, Nov. 10 - Unofficial results are certified to the state by noon.
In that race, incumbent Sen.
Her office, rather than giving hourly updates, is "releasing thousands of additional votes, often in the overnight hours, that are chipping away at GOP leads", Rubio said.
And like 2000, the counting process is becoming contentious.
After the dust clears and results are certified, candidates have ten days to contest the election in court. "It has opened the door for lawyers to come here [and] try to steal a seat in the U.S. Senate [and] Florida Cabinet".
But 22,000 votes still need counting in the tight race between Mr Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams - who has not yet conceded.
"It's a little early to say how it's going to play out", Foley said. After its 2000 debacle, the state shifted to electronic voting machines, but later changed again to optical-scan paper ballots, the most reliable technology. "That seems to happen about half the time".
Nelson's campaign has hired Marc Elias, a Democratic lawyer who regularly works issues of voter's rights and election protection.
However, it's not yet known how many ballots were cast or are left to count in Broward County, the second-largest by population in the state, and which leans heavily Democratic.
Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., exits the Senate subway en route to a vote on Capitol Hill, June 20, 2018. "That under-vote doesn't make sense". Democrats believe Nelson's margin could shrink even more once ballots from the county - along with nearby Palm Beach County - are counted.
Provisional ballots are given to voters because their eligibility to vote is challenged for some reason - perhaps they have an address discrepancy, or they forgot their ID. "We recognize that we didn't win this tonight".
