recount wars known for an aggressive style.

A third state-wide race that could go to a recount - the agriculture commissioner race between Democrat Nikki Fried and Republican Matt Caldwell - is the tightest of all, with Fried holding a 483-vote lead - a margin of 0.006 percent.

In a statement Thursday, Gillum's campaign says it underestimated the ballots that still needed to be counted when he conceded. "We believe that at the end of this process that Senator Nelson is going to be declared the victor".

Throughout the state, overseas and military voters - a very small pool - still had a few days for their ballots to arrive by mail and be counted.

The recount will be done by machines and should be concluded by November 18.

In one of the closest (and most closely-watched) races of the 2018 election, Republican representative Ron DeSantis has edged out Andrew Gillum to become Governor of Florida.

Florida's is a perennial swing state, and many of its elections have been decided by the thinnest of margins since 2000, when Florida decided the presidency by 537 votes in a contest that took more than five weeks to sort out. Bill Nelson the victor and with defeated Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum hedging his concession.


Scott slammed the supervisors of elections in Palm Beach and Broward counties and said liberals in the two counties are trying to steal the election.

"I am considering every single legal option available", said Scott, while appearing before the media outside the governor's mansion last night.

Broward Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes said she didn't know how many ballots remain to be counted, but all were being processed. Rick Scott declared victory Tuesday night over Sen. Those were mostly "provisional votes" - votes cast by individuals who lacked the proper ID or wound up at the wrong polling place. Nelson never officially conceded.

"This morning, Bill Nelson is introducing the people of Florida to Marc Elias, a hired gun from Washington, D.C., who will try to win an election for Nelson that Nelson has already lost", Scott's campaign said in an email Thursday.

"Let's be clear about the Nelson game-plan here", he tweeted Thursday.

"Don't steal our election!" they shouted in chants alternated with songs including "The Star Spangled Banner" and reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance. "They won't be successful". A lead of less than 0.25 percent triggers a hand recount of actual ballots. The two-term governor's victory margin dropped from.27 percent on Wednesday to just 0.22 of 1 percent by Thursday afternoon, according to unofficial returns.

Recounts usually don't shift enough votes to change the apparent victor. Elias expects those ballots to favor Democrats.


Voters who cast provisional ballots have until Thursday at 5 p.m.to verify their ID or provide other data to county officials to make their ballots count.

The President said officials involved in the "phony dossier" about his campaign's contacts with Russian Federation are involved in the recount efforts.

"Provisional ballots are becoming rarer but there's an increased likelihood they're going to be accepted", Smith said. That could be because the question was listed under instructions on Broward's ballot, and some people might have missed it. He said they checked with the Department of State for any fraud claims against her and there were none.

Elias has been involved in some high-stakes recounts.

Scott has a narrow lead over incumbent Democratic Sen. Al Franken's 2008 recount fight. Norm Coleman in Minnesota.

The competitive race - widely viewed as a proxy war between the progressive left and the far-right - attracted intense national scrutiny, with Democrats hopeful for a win amid a surge in voter turnout.
