Rick Scott’s Investigation Request Has Already Been Denied

Governors' races in the southern US states of Florida and Georgia had yet to be decided

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, sought to inspect physical ballots only to discover Snipes' office had destroyed the originals but kept digital copies. The Scott campaign said bluntly Sen. "Florida voted for Rick Scott!", the president tweeted.

Scott has expressed frustration at the new votes coming in from Broward, which have already narrowed his margin of victory over Nelson.

Snipe's office broke the law by failing to give a vote count on time.

"Shortly after Elias" conference call was finished, former Democratic congressman Patrick Murphy tweeted that his ballot was rejected over his signature. Today the Florida Department of Law Enforcement stated, "This morning we spoke with the Department of State and they indicated they had no criminal allegations of fraud".

Rick Scott called for an investigation into what he called vote counting fraud in Broward and Palm Beach counties, but no investigation has begun. He challenged GOP U.S. Sen. Scott has responded by accusing county election supervisors Snipes and Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher of corruption.

Scott holds a razor-thin lead over Nelson.

Under Florida law, a recount is mandatory if the winning candidate's margin is less than 0.5 percentage points when the first unofficial count is verified Saturday by Florida's secretary of state.

"Some believe that this is simply rank incompetence", Scott said.

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

His lawsuit, announced on Thursday night, claims the election officials did not provide enough information and transparency around uncounted ballots. The race remains too close to call, with Nelson narrowly trailing Scott.

Meanwhile, Nelson's reelection campaign has filed a lawsuit against Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner over vote-by-mail ballots. "As usual, it's Broward County and Brenda Snipes", said "Sharon".

But some Republicans, like Raschein, say they can't account for Scott's lack of apparent support in the Keys, noting, among other actions, his quick reaction in sending resources following September 2017's devastating Hurricane Irma.

Gretl Plessinger, a spokeswoman for the Florida law enforcement agency, said by phone Thursday night that the agency would follow up on the governor's request. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.), pointed the finger at Broward County, which has had a long history of mishandling elections.

In the now-infamous presidential election of 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court stopped a manual recount in Florida with Republican George W. Bush leading Democrat Al Gore by 537 votes. "No ragtag group of liberal activists or lawyers from DC will be allowed to steal this election from the voters in the state of Florida". Bill Nelson appears headed for a recount.

Why is she so flippant about flouting Florida's election laws? A hearing was set for 3 p.m.in state court. The National Review reports that Brenda Snipes, the Broward County Board of Elections supervisor, has come under scrutiny for her handling of Tuesday's elections.

In the governor's race, Democrat Andrew Gillum's campaign said Thursday it's readying for a possible recount.

In the Senate contest that Scott was running in, Democrat Bill Nelson was trailing by "about 15,000 votes, a margin of 0.18 points".

Turns out that there are still a number of votes still to be counted in Maricopa and Broward counties.
