DeSantis: No reaction to race he declared 'over'

Democrat Andrew Gillum, who had sought to become Florida's first black governor, conceded on Saturday as a recount of ballots neared its end, and he congratulated rival Republican Ron DeSantis, an ally of President Donald Trump.

In a Facebook Live video with his wife, Gillum announced his concession and congratulated DeSantis on his victory. "This has been the journey of our lives". "I wouldn't be here without the support that was shown my millions of Floridians".

He added: "We are going to keep fighting".

Mr Gillum, the liberal mayor of Tallahassee, had initially conceded the race to Mr DeSantis, a conservative former congressman. A second, manual recount is underway in that contest, because the margin following the initial machine recount was still too narrow by state standards.

This is a developing story.

President Trump had repeatedly said Florida's elections were marred by vote fraud. Bill Nelson was only gaining a few hundred votes in his bitter contest with outgoing Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican.

Gillum appeared in a Facebook video with his wife, R. Jai Gillum, to acknowledge his loss ― by a margin of just 0.41 percentage points.

Gillum spokesman Kevin Cate stressed yesterday that the push to count every vote is about more than finding a path to the governor's mansion for Gillum.

A South Florida elections official says that her office has misplaced more than 2,000 ballots. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott, and Florida's race for agriculture commissioner did fall within that margin and are now in the midst of a hand recount.

While the tone read uncharacteristically kind, the grammar was decided past tense, serving as the latest and loudest of political assessments on the state of Florida's gubernatorial race.

The race was one of the most closely watched in the country. Counties have until noon on Sunday to report official results to the Department of State. Snipes did insist that the ballots were still in the elections building. Once that recount was complete, if the differences in any of the races are 0.25 percentage points or less, a hand recount is ordered.
