Nelson, Scott spar as Florida Senate race nears hand recount
By Max Greenwood - 11/08/18 12:29 PM EST

Florida Sen. Bill Nelson (D) and Gov. Rick Scott (R) sparred on Thursday amid continued uncertainty over the results of their closely watched Senate race, with Nelson insisting that a recount was all but inevitable.

As of Thursday morning, Nelson and Scott were separated by roughly 22,000 votes – about 0.26 percent. In Florida, a machine recount is automatically triggered if the candidates are within 0.5 points of one another, while a hand recount is required if the margin is 0.25 percent or less.

Nelson, who is trailing Scott by an ultra-thin margin, has not conceded the race. As a recount appeared increasingly likely on Wednesday, the three-term Democrat retained Marc Elias, a prominent lawyer who has represented Democrats in a number of election fights, to work for his campaign.

Elias said Thursday that he is confident Nelson will gain votes in a recount – enough to hand him another term in the Senate. He pointed to how drastically Scott’s lead has closed in the two days since Election Day, insisting ongoing canvassing by county election supervisors would play out in Nelsons favor.

This goes to a hand count and Nelson will win.  PBC has been working furiously to create more ballots that will be found to have been put in the trunk of someone's car by accident.

I've lived down here since 1991 -- another couple years of Nelson would be par for the course.  I would love to see him retired, but I think you are right; a hand count = Nelson. 

I'm a lot more concerned that there could  a recount between DeSantis and Gillum.

According to the news, ballots are still being tallied in Broward; which could mean that we may have governor Gillum rather than DeSantis.  It wouldn't surprise me in the least. Him conceding when he did was plain stupid; or a political stunt.

Fortunately, even in a 60/40 Dem county like Dade or Palm Beach, it would require a bit over 100K new votes to generate a 22K Dem spread. Nelson didn't win alot of counties either, so spreading it around won't do much to hide the obvious fraud.

#Florida law requires counties report early voting & vote-by-mail within 30 minutes after polls close. 43 hours after polls closed 2 Democrat strongholds #BrowardCounty & #PalmBeachCounty are still counting & refusing to disclose how many ballots they have left to count.

Latest ballots dumped by #Broward &/or #PalmBeach flipped Ag Comm race to Dem & shaved another 4k+ from Scott’s lead in Senate race

Since 3am Wed slow drip from these 2 Dem controlled counties cut Scott lead from 54 to 17K. And they refuse to disclose # of ballots they have left

Legally those votes don't count. It's the law.

I know what they are doing. What I don't understand is why the FL GOP isn't going to court to stop it. Scott is the GD Gov for Christs sakes. What are they waiting for? A full blown Antifa riot?

Urgent! There has been a recount triggered for the Governor's race. If you voted with a provisional ballot, you have until 5pm local time to produce necessary documentation to your local SOE. Call your local SOE and verify what needs to be done.

Long but IMPORTANT THREAT ON ELECTIONS IN #FLORIDA.

#BayCounty was hit by a Cat 4 Hurricane just 4 weeks ago,yet managed to count votes & submit timely results.

Yet over 41 hours after polls closed #Broward elections office is still counting votes?

#Broward supervisor:
- says she doesn’t know how many ballots are left to be counted; &
- Isn’t reporting hourly or regularly,but rather releasing thousands of additional votes,often in the overnight hours,that are chipping away at GOP leads

#Broward elections department has a history of violating the law:

A court found they improperly handled votes by mail:

Now democrat lawyers are descending on #Florida. They have been very clear they aren’t here to make sure every vote is counted.

- They are here to change the results of election; &
- #Broward is where they plan to do it.

A U.S. Senate seat & a statewide cabinet officer are now potentially in the hands of an elections supervisor with a history of incompetence & of blatant violations of state & federal laws.

#Broward election supervisors ongoing violation of #Florida law requiring timely reporting isn’t just annoying incompetence. It has opened the door for lawyers to come here & try to steal a seat in the U.S. Senate & Florida Cabinet

And what is Rubio and other GOP state officials doing about it other that Twits? This is absurd. We all now know there is a problem there. You telling me there are no GOP lawyers in that state?

Yes, but there's a set of rules for the DEMS and another set for the GOP.

They should be there already. @mrclose is citing things from previous elections that are common knowledge and everyone knew this was going to be a close race. It is dereliction of the highest order.

Now all of this is based off of what I am reading and hearing. It could be the case that the GOP is already on this and in court trying to get and stop to this as we speak and are being smart and quite about it.

Not in the US Supreme Court.....which is where this has to head if it is happening the way things are being reported.
