President Trump Vows To Send Lawyers Amid Ballot Counting

  • Florida may be heading for a ballot recount — again

Similar action has been taken in other states with signature match laws, most notably Georgia. There are several races too close to call in Arizona, especially the Senate race between Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema and Republican candidate Martha McSally.

On Friday morning, the Department of State informed the law enforcement agency that they have received "no allegation of criminal activity" thus far as it relates to the election.

Scott on Thursday night said voters "should be concerned there may be rampant fraud happening" in the two counties.

The tabulation of those votes will continue to narrow Scott's razor-thin lead over Nelson, Elias predicted. Florida responded with a law requiring a statewide machine recount if the final result is within half a percentage point, and a hand recount if the result is within a quarter percentage point.

"He is making a joke of our elections system and stepping on basic rights", Groh-Wargo said.

Only about 15,000 votes separate the candidates.

Elias is an attorney for the campaign of Democratic U.S. Sen. An undervote is when the number of votes cast in a particular race is lower than vote totals in other races on the ballot.

Neither the Associated Press nor CNN have called the race.

Trump accused Democratic election officials in the two Florida counties of corruption, without providing any evidence. "They are asking courts to overrule election officials and accept ballots that were not legally cast".

On Friday morning, Trump told reporters that Snipes had a "horrible history", adding, "What's going on in Florida is a disgrace".

Mourinho was asked about his view of the allegations against City , and said he suspected wrongdoing at the club. Vicky Kloss, a spokeswoman for City , is said to have sent an email to team executives warning against the deal.

The lawsuits filed against Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher and Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes seek more access by party members to the canvassing process.

Florida's secretary of state, a Scott appointee, is tasked with overseeing state-mandated recounts.

Bucher served as an aide to Democratic Florida state Rep. Ed Healey.

Florida Governor Rick Scott is excoriating Palm Beach County for refusing to comply with a judge's order about their ballot counting process Friday. Those are the U.S. Senate race, Florida Governor's race, and the contest for state Agriculture Commissioner.

Meanwhile, inside the Broward Supervisor of Elections Office, the canvassing board got back to work hours behind schedule. A hearing was set for 3 p.m.in state court.

On Thursday night, Scott announced that his campaign has filed lawsuits against Broward and Palm Beach elections supervisors and that he asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to conduct an investigation in the counties.

On Twitter, Trump also weighed in on the Georgia governor race, where Republican Brian Kemp has claimed victory, even though votes are still being counted and his Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams appears to be just shy of enough votes to trigger a recount.

Unofficial results show Gillum trailing Ron DeSantis, a Trump-endorsed Republican, by just 36,165 votes, or 0.44 percentage points.

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.

As Florida heads towards a machine recount for the Senate and gubernatorial races, prominent Republicans are alleging voter fraud by Democrats trying to create new votes for their candidates.
