  • Marco Rubio: Democrats Are Trying to Steal Florida Senate Race by Counting All the Votes

"More ballots came in", said Joyce Griffin, Monroe County's supervisor of elections.

Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher's attorneys filed a motion to request a hearing for emergency reconsideration, Palm Beach's ABC News affiliate WPBF reported.

Lawyers for Snipes argued that requiring such a swift response would interfere with ongoing efforts to finish counting Broward County ballots.

Similar action has been taken in other states with signature match laws, most notably Georgia.

The Palm Beach canvassing board began reviewing ballots at 10 a.m., and the Palm Beach Post reported the process continued on Friday night.

It's fair to say that the county election officials are slow, and there could even be incompetence, but to suggest there is fraud without providing evidence is irresponsible. But it is also possible that vote-processing machines in Broward suffered a technical glitch that caused them not to read Senate votes that were properly marked on paper ballots - and if that is the case, then a recount would very likely tip the Senate race to Nelson.

"This morning our agency did communicate with DOS and they indicated at this time, they had no allegations of fraud", Starke said in an email Friday to News 6.

Scott announced the suit and his call for an investigation at a press conference at the governor's mansion Thursday night.

Florida is tied with NY for the third-highest number of Electoral College votes (29), so its political landscape will have significant influence on the presidential election in 2020, when President Donald Trump is expected to seek re-election and the Democrats will try to unseat him.

Both Scott and Republican Sen.

Two Democratic candidates, Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia, were aiming to become the states' first African-American governors, but the races were tilting in favour of their Republican rivals.

Before leaving for Paris to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI on Friday, Mr Trump told reporters he believes Mr Scott clearly won the election.

The AP has not called a victor in the Senate race.

During the 200 presidential election, Democratic candidate Al Gore sought a hand count of ballots in several Florida counties, including Broward County.

In the midst of researching the results, Murphy says he made a decision to go to the Palm Beach County website to ensure that his vote was registered.

Protester Alessandra Mondolfi said the board should be allowed enough time to count every vote.

Protesters held signs that said, "Brenda Snipes has to go", "stop creating votes" and "don't steal our election".

With only about 15,000 votes separating U.S. Sen.

Trial For Accused Drug Lord 'El Chapo' Begins In Brooklyn
He has been in solitary confinement in a high-security NY prison since Mexico extradited him to the United States in January 2017. The ruthless reputation of the Mexican drug lord known as El Chapo has sparked security concerns at his upcoming US trial.

Rick Scott, who is vying for a seat in the Senate, has ripped the female election supervisors in the state's two largest counties as "unethical liberals".

Scott also said Palm Beach County officials refused to provide information on the ballot count, and were illegally denying party officials access to the ballot counting areas.

"Tonight I am asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate this immediately and I am considering every single legal option available". "What is unusual is to undervote the top of the ticket", Elias said, via RollCall. With a U.S. Senate race on the line, one might think this deserves a somewhat believable explanation.

Mr Trump said on Friday he would send his lawyers to Florida "to expose the fraud", calling the Nelson campaign's recount lawyer Marc Elias an election stealer. He is all but saying the election will only be legitimate if the tally is stopped right now and Republicans are declared the winners, no matter how many people's votes are not counted.

Florida counties have until noon Saturday to submit unofficial election results to the Department of State.

Mr Trump weighed in with a tweet on the Senate race, citing the possibility of election fraud.

Mr. Gillum had conceded to Mr. DeSantis on Tuesday night.

State law mandates a recount if the difference in a race is within 0.5 percent.

Rick Scott, the Republican candidate for Senate who now leads Democratic opponent Sen.

Democrats Will Likely Reclaim Control Of The House Of Representatives
Opposition to Trump proved to be more a motivating factor for Democrats than support for the president a factor for Republicans. Joe Donnelly in IN and Republican Marsha Blackburn's win in Tennessee made it much more hard for Democrats to make inroads.
