Democratic recount attorney insists: "Sen. Nelson is going to prevail"

Scott declared victory Tuesday night, but the race is still too close to call, according to NBC News.

Scott's campaign and the NRSC will also have access to those ballots, per the judge's ruling. The Palm Beach County suit alleges Republican Party representatives weren't allowed "to properly witness" processing of damaged absentee ballots.

Scott's comments came as his campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee filed a lawsuit against Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes.

Protesters showed up at the Broward County elections tabulation center in Florida on November 9.

Elias said Scott's words are revealing.

Nelson's campaign said Scott's impromptu investigation was "politically motivated". The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has said they are not investigating, that no allegations of fraud have been brought forward and there has been no written request from Scott yet.

Now a judge has agreed that Broward has violated the law and given them a few hours to rectify this, exactly as Rubio, Rick Scott, and the NRSC claimed.

Joe Scarborough believes that Florida Senator Marco Rubio is "concocting a conspiracy theory" created to suppress votes from being counted in two very close races in Florida. "Since that time, it has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported", Gillum's campaign said. These same two Democratic-leaning counties proved problematic in providing voter returns in the 2000 presidential election when Republican George W. Bush narrowly defeated Democrat Al Gore in a historic recount. The governor filed lawsuits in both counties seeking more information on how their ballots were being tallied.

Nelson's camp believes provisional and mail-in ballots will favor their candidate and tighten the contest even more before a recount begins on Sunday.

"We can not allow over eight million votes throughout Florida to be undermined because you have someone who is either too stupid or too corrupt to do their job and report the votes on time", he said.

DeSantis declined to discuss prospects for a recount, telling reporters he was "very proud to be elected".

Caputo's criticism of Broward County, which has a history of vote-counting problems, stems from the failure of the county's elections supervisor, Brenda Snipes, to report the number of votes received by the jurisdiction for the Senate election between incumbent Democratic Sen.

Nelson's recount lawyer Marc Elias said the law puts the responsibility of signature review in the hands of untrained, unqualified local election workers and leads to the disqualification of legitimate ballots.

"This process is about one thing, making sure that every legal ballot is counted and protecting the right of every Floridian to participate in our democracy". Scott, he tweeted, was up by more than 50,000 votes on Election Day.

"The results of the 2018 Senate election are unknown and I think that you and the elections officials should treat it as such", Elias told reporters on a conference call. And, as a result, nobody really knows how many ballots are still left out there, how many provisional ballots, overseas ballots are going to trickle in now.

President Donald Trump tweeted Friday he's sending lawyers to expose "fraud" in Broward County as ballots continue to be counted ahead of a noon Saturday deadline for canvassing boards to submit unofficial results from Tuesday's election.
