Caldwell files lawsuit against Broward County supervisor of elections

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

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

Bill Nelson and Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott as the two sides prepare for a possible recount.

Scott "easily won, but every hour it seems to be going down", he said of Scott's lead which on Friday stood at 14,999 votes out of 8.2 million cast, a margin of just 0.18 percent.

Scott announced Thursday he is suing the Palm Beach and Broward county supervisors of elections, saying "there may be rampant fraud" in the counties that heavily favor Democrats.

This year, just because the law allows for recounts doesn't mean recounts will change any results - they probably won't.

Trump has a history of calling out fraud, without providing evidence to back up his claims. Trump even created a commission to investigate alleged fraud after the 2016 election, but it dissolved without releasing any findings.

For demanding that Broward adhere to state law, Rubio was accused of to trying to stop some votes from being counted. "We do not let people seize ballots when they think they're losing".

County election canvassing boards, which determine whether the provisional ballots can be counted, have until noon Saturday to submit unofficial results to the state Division of Elections.

Both Nelson's and Scott's teams have been fighting to officially secure the win as more ballots are still being counted. "It is literally the best of democracy".

But as vote counts updated Wednesday overnight - with elections employees running ballots through voting machines into the early morning - the margins shrank.

"More ballots came in", said Joyce Griffin, Monroe County's supervisor of elections. They substituted their own totally subjective standards in an effort to give Gore enough votes to make him president - and nearly succeeded. The Associated Press has not called the race, and votes have continued to be counted this week. Kemp leads Abrams with 50.3% of the vote and has claimed victory, but Abrams, who would be the first female black governor in the U.S., has yet to concede, saying that some votes have not yet been counted. He needs to finish above 50 percent to avoid a runoff election.

Meanwhile in Georgia, Republican Brian Kemp has resigned as secretary of state after claiming victory in the gubernatorial election. The initial count of votes has not yet been completed, as ballots in these populous, Democratic-leaning counties are still being counted.

"The subject this endeavor is to get this right", he said in the hearing. Because to the naked eye, this is nothing but pure gaslighting about the obvious efforts of two of the most historically scandal-ridden counties in the country when it comes to elections and voting.

In Arizona, hundreds of thousands of ballots were still left to be counted in a fierce battle for the Senate as Kyrsten Sinema - now a Democratic congresswoman - edged ahead of Martha McSally, a Republican congresswoman.

According to the Sun Sentinel, an unusual pattern has emerged in Broward County, where many more people voted in local races than the U.S. Senate race, when the trend is typically the reverse.

A recount is also expected to take place in the Florida governor race between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum.
