In Florida, Rick Scott Sues: 'Votes Coming Out of Nowhere'

Marco Rubio: Democrats Are Trying to Steal Florida Senate Race by Counting All the Votes

Marco Rubio: Democrats Are Trying to Steal Florida Senate Race by Counting All the Votes

Scott filed two lawsuits on Thursday against the supervisors of elections in Broward and Palm Beach counties, the Miami Herald reported.

No one answered at Snipes' office late Thursday.

Scott's campaign announced Friday that the National Republican Senatorial Committee has retained the Gibson Dunn law firm on behalf of the campaign.

Both campaigns filed lawsuits Thursday.

President Trump himself has gone after Snipes, telling reporters Friday, "She has had a disgusting history ... and all of a sudden they're finding votes out of nowhere".

Scott said "unethical liberals" were trying to steal the election in Democratic strongholds of Broward and Palm Beach County.

Their goal: Try to reach voters who used a provisional ballot, then urge them to make sure their vote is counted by a 5 p.m. Friday deadline. "This morning we spoke with the Department of State and they indicated that at this time they had no allegations of fraud". By two o'clock that same day the Florida Secretary of State is expected to certify those results and order a machine recount for any multi-county races within half a percentage point.

Trump said Scott "won by a comfortable margin", though he noted that "every couple of hours, it goes down a little bit".

Florida is once again at the center of election controversy, but this year there are no hanging chads or butterfly ballots like in 2000.

"Election officials are literally just counting the ballots".

The Senate race in Arizona between two USA congresswomen, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally, appeared days away from a final call with hundreds of thousands of ballots yet to be tallied.

News of a recall for Rooney comes after he single-handedly turned D.C United's season around following his move across the pond. "If anything, this would convince me not to buy one".

Meanwhile, Democrat Stacey Abrams' campaign for Georgia governor has reserved television advertising time and started sending vote-by-mail information to its supporters in the event she forces a December 4 runoff with Republican Brian Kemp.

The hiring came after Scott derided Nelson for hiring Elias as "one of Hillary Clinton's lawyers from D.C". And, as a result, nobody really knows how many ballots are still left out there, how many provisional ballots, overseas ballots are going to trickle in now.

He also criticized the woman in charge of supervising elections in Broward County, saying, "She has had a frightful history". If she wins, Ms. Abrams will be the U.S.'s first female African American Governor. He's asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate.

"This serves as an outright disenfranchisement and burden on the right to vote", Marc Elias, a lawyer with the Nelson campaign, told reporters during a conference call Friday.

The Florida Senate race still hasn't been called and Democrat Sen.

In Washington, Trump took Scott's side, telling reporters that the federal government could get involved and adding: "all of the sudden they are finding votes out of nowhere". The machine recount could begin that same day, with the results due by November 15.

President Trump on Friday blamed Florida's potential recount in its gubernatorial and Senate races on a "woman" with a "horrible history " - as he slammed the Sunshine State's Election Day debacle as a "disgrace". Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, meanwhile, conceded Florida's governor race to Republican Ron DeSantis, because he was trailing the congressman by an even larger margin.

Scott declared victory Tuesday night, but the race is still too close to call, according to NBC News. If the margin is within 0.25%, as it stood Thursday in the Senate race, a hand recount - slower and more thorough than by machine - is ordered. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott are locked in an extremely close contest for the Senate, with Scott holding a lead in the vote count of less than a percentage point but Nelson gaining ground.

Partisan bickering amplified Friday over the razor-thin margins in three Florida state elections that remain in limbo, after Gov.
