And a 1, and a 2... Florida elections by the numbers

Florida looks to be subject to three recounts from Tuesday's election. To add to the fun, Governor Ric Scott has filed a lawsuit against the Broward Supervisor of Elections for counting too slowly. The Senate candidate claims that the suoervisor of election, a elected democrat, is creating ballots for his opponent.

Races for the US Senate, and Governor are both within .5%, the threshold that requires a recount by state law. Scott is leading Bill Nelson by roughly 32,000 votes out of more than 8-million cast. Republican Ron Desantis leads Andrew Gillum by 43,000 votes, or .47%. The Republican candidates have seen their vote count shrink as absentee, military, and provisional ballots are counted.

In the race for State Secretary of Agriculture, the lead changed earlier today when Democrat Nikki Fried foe a 2,500 vote lead over Tuesday's apparent winner Republican Matt Caldwell. Fried entered the day trailing by 4,000 votes. The .04 difference means that ballots in that race must be hand counted.

Trump will go down and count the ballots himself before he allows a non-white Governor.

This Floridan has high hopes, but I know the R's will take it in the end.

Hey, what is Rubio doing? getting into a "conspiracy" fight? I think he is sinking his ship of fortune.
