Florida Will Recount Election Races for Governor and Senator

*Uh oh! The orange a-hole in the White House is gonna be super pissed off when he hears what’s happening in Florida regarding the election that he declared had been won by Republicans.

The news is that Florida has decided to move forward on a recount of its tight races for governor, senator and agriculture commissioner. On top of that, Arizona and Georgia are also considering recounts for their extremely tight gubernatorial and senate races.

As you can imagine, the outcomes have significant meanings attached to them. They will decide whether the Republicans have a comfortable edge in the Senate, or a narrow majority. It also means that Democrat governors in the affected states would also have an outsize influence on the presidential race in 2020. The Florida and Georgia elections in particular drew heavy celebrity interest and fundraising.

Here’s more via Deadline:
The Florida secretary of state announced the recount today. The unofficial results have Republican Gov. Rick Scott leading incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson by more than 12,500 votes, or about .15%.

In Florida’s governor race, Republican former Rep. Ron DeSantis is ahead of Democrat Andrew Gillum by nearly 34,000 votes, for a lead of .41%. The agriculture commissioner – a key post in the state – saw Nikki Fried’s advantage stands at 5,326 votes over Republican Matt Caldwell.

The recounts will be done by machine and must be completed by 3 PM on Thursday. If the races are still within .25%, then a hand recount will take place.

The Senate race and the contest for agriculture commissioner both currently both fall within .25%.
