Florida Secretary Of State Orders Machine Recounts In Elections

Florida recount

There will be a recount in Florida. The Secretary of State is ordering a machine recount in the razor-thin  races for governor, senator and agriculture commissioner.  Unofficial  results filed by counties show Republican Governor Rick Scott leading  over incumbent Democratic Senator Bill Nelson by over 12,500 votes.  In the governor's race, Republican  former Representative Ron DeSantis is leading by nearly 34-thousand  votes compared to Tallahasee Mayor Andrew Gillum. A machine recount is  being ordered because the margins in all three races are under  zero-point-five-percent.  The machine recount must be finished by  Thursday at 3 pm Eastern.
