Democrat incumbent Bill Nelson’s campaign team announced that the race between him and Governor Rick Scott will go to a recount. From Politico:
Of the 8.1 million votes cast, Scott leads by just 34,537 votes, which is less than one-half point, the threshold for a state-mandated recount.
“We are proceeding to a recount,” Nelson said Wednesday in a statement.
The three-term Democratic senator released a statement at 1 a.m. Wednesday morning announcing that he was disappointed in the election night results.
Now, all of Florida’s 67 counties need to recheck tally totals. The deadline for the process is noon on Nov. 10.
