The Florida Sec Of State has ordered recount in the Governor, Senate and Ag commissioner races.
Election officials in Florida announced Saturday that the state will hold recounts in its high-profile Senate and gubernatorial races.

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner also ordered a recount in the race for agriculture commissioner.

An automatic statewide machine recount is carried out when the margin of victory is less than 0.5 percentage point. Unofficial results had shown that in the governor’s race, former Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis led his Democratic challenger, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, by less than the 0.5-point margin. The New York Times showed the race at 49.6 percent for DeSantis and 49.2 percent for Gillum on Saturday afternoon.

“I am replacing my earlier concession with an unapologetic and uncompromised call to count every vote,” Gillum tweeted on Saturday.

The margin of victory had also narrowed in Florida’s Senate race to less than the 0.25 point threshold that triggers a manual recount, in which votes are counted by hand when “overvotes” and “undervotes” are identified.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s lead over Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson had narrowed to 0.15 percentage points, with the Times listing the count at 50.1 percent to 49.9 percent on Saturday afternoon.

In the race for Florida’s agriculture commissioner, Democratic candidate Nicole “Nikki” Fried pulled into the lead over Republican state Rep. Matt Caldwell by a 0.06-percentage-point margin, representing just a few thousand votes out of more than 8 million cast, according to The Orlando Sentinel.

Now Agent Orange is tweeting about Dems stealing elections rather than go to an American military cemetery in France due to a little rain.
Accusations of fraud and lawsuits have emerged over the Florida contests in recent days, conjuring memories of the state’s 2000 presidential recount. In that vote, the winner of the White House hung in the balance for weeks before the U.S. Supreme Court stopped the counting and Republican George W. Bush triumphed over Democrat Al Gore.

President Donald Trump has accused Democratic election officials in Florida’s Broward and Palm Beach Counties of corruption, without providing any evidence.

“Trying to STEAL two big elections in Florida! We are watching closely!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday during a visit to France.

Republicans are stepping up the drama just like they did in 2000 when SCOTUS handed the presidency to W. MAGA hatted protesters are at the Broward County Elections Board yelling about fake votes and suffing ballot boxes. Like 2000 this may end up in federal courts and ultimately at SCOTUS and we know how the majority will vote on SCOTUS. Is everything becoming more politicized or is it that we're more aware of the political games?
