DeSantis makes promises, appointments as governor-elect

All Eyes on Florida's Gubernatorial Race: Will Florida Go Blue?

When those machine recounts indicate the margin is less than a quarter of 1 percent, it automatically triggers a manual recount.

Many Democrats believed that the 39-year-old Gillum, the father of three young children, injected a degree of enthusiasm lacking for their party's candidates over the past several elections. Elias said it was odd that the undervoting was happening at the top of the ticket, rather than downballot.

On Thursday, he tweeted, "Every voice must be heard in this race!" and encouraged people who had submitted provisional ballots to contact their local county supervisor of elections. But so far, they have only tabulated 665,688 ballots in the Senate race.

Andrew Gillum's historic race for Florida governor may not be over. Fox News called the race for Scott on Tuesday night by 50.4 percent to 49.6 percent, with 99 percent of precincts reporting. He won with 49.9 percent of the vote.

Even if Nelson had conceded, state law would have required the recount anyway.

"I still believe and I still trust the voters".

Democrats won governorships on Tuesday in several US states that supported Republican President Donald Trump in 2016 but lost high-profile races in Florida and OH, as voters cast ballots in dozens of gubernatorial contests across the country.

Hill doesn't know whether Florida ever will count her votes for Gillum, who narrowly lost to DeSantis and conceded the race, or any other of her preferred candidates. DeSantis' margin of victory there slipped to 42,948.

DeSantis argued throughout the campaign that Florida's relationship with the president - whether he or she agrees with his policies or not- is important for the state.

Asked what it would mean for the state if he wins, Gillum said: 'Us winning tonight I think will send a message to Mr. Trump and Mr. DeSantis as well that the politics of hatred and of division and of separation, that they come to an end, at least in this election, that's what we're going to show.

On Wednesday, Caldwell led Fried by a.10 percent margin, or just 8,254 votes. "I think you're going to get exhausted of me calling, asking for things for Florida". That people are going out and they're voting for something and not against'.

Voters with issues are supposed to cast those ballots, and then if necessary provide any additional evidence that their ballots should be accepted.

Florida voters fill in paper ballots by hand using a pen and no longer cast the punch-card ballots that produced the infamous "hanging chads" in the 2000 presidential election.

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio also called into question the fact that, days after the election ended, both Broward and Palm Beach Counties continue to apparently find more previously uncounted Democratic votes.

"My most significant and valued supporter is standing right next to me, despite what the media might say", DeSantis said of his wife Casey.
