Gillum now says recount possible in Florida's governor race

Bill Nelson. A margin of 0.25 or less would trigger a hand recount.

But for now, Republicans maintain their dominance in Florida - even if by the slimmest of margins.

The Senate race is already likely headed to a machine recount, which is triggered when the margin is less than 0.5 percentage points.

DeSantis won by over 55,000 votes (.68 percent) in the intial vote count-very close to triggering a recount. Nelson's attorneys have predicted the recount will result in Nelson returning to the Senate.

Trump-backed Rep. Ron DeSantis ran a tight race against Gillum, a Bernie Sanders-backed candidate and the mayor of Tallahassee, who secured an impressive victory in his August primary.

When additional ballots began narrowing DeSantis' margin of victory on November 7, Gillum tweeted: "I'm looking forward to seeing every vote counted". Any recount would probably begin Monday.

Blaise Ingoglia, chairman of the Florida Republican Party, slammed Nelson's assertions Thursday.

DeSantis, a former U.S. Congressman, was closely aligned with President Donald Trump, who came twice to Florida to campaign with him. Both of them will end up leaving egg on Gillum's face in the end, and making not one whit of meaningful difference in the eventual ballot count.

Andrew Gillum's historic race for Florida governor may not be over.

Overseas ballots must be received by November 16 and have an Election Day postmark, based on Florida election rules.

Floridians have until 5 p.m. today to make sure any "provisional vote" they might have signed (due to mismatching signatures or IDs) is counted.

In Miami-Dade, only provisional and overseas ballots remained uncounted.

There has been speculation that the Senate race's placement in the bottom left corner of the Broward ballot, away from the state races that got more votes, was responsible for the undercount.

Ingoglia was particularly harsh about the lack of information coming from Broward and Palm Beach counties.

"I gave them the number that we had, but I did not give them the names", Okaloosa Supervisor of Elections Paul Lux told the Herald/Times.

Wiles said a big question mark concerned how many independent voters would turn out and if they would break for any particular candidate. "Right now, nobody knows".

Marc Elias, a lawyer hired by Nelson, said he expects the margin to continue to narrow. Provisional ballots are given to voters who don't have proper ID or whose names don't show up on the rolls at the precinct. "So ignore him and vote, Florida!"

Gillum replied: "My grandmother used to say a hit dog will holler".

Scott repeatedly hit the theme that Nelson was a confused, do-nothing senator who has made a career in Washington toeing the party line.

"I sincerely regret that I couldn't bring it home for you, but I can guarantee you this: I'm not going anywhere", he said during a tearful, 10 minute speech.

"There are simply not enough ballots out there to change the election", he told Bouldan on CNN.
