  • Marco Rubio: Democrats Are Trying to Steal Florida Senate Race by Counting All the Votes

President Donald Trump is weighing in on the Florida Senate race, citing the possibility of election fraud.

In Florida, both the senate and governor's races remain undecided, and could potentially be heading for a recount.

In speaking with Florida Politics, Murphy laid out how he discovered his vote would not be counted.

Regarding the Senate race between incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson and Republican Rick Scott, Trump alluded to the massive difference in the vote count that occurred between Tuesday night and Thursday evening.

The Nelson campaign has filed its own lawsuit against Florida's secretary of state to try to enjoin election officials from rejecting mail-in ballots and provisional ballots "on the basis of a standardless signature matching process". "Don't worry, Florida - I am sending much better lawyers to expose the FRAUD!" he tweeted on his way to Paris to celebrate Armistice Day. Trump said on Twitter, without elaborating.

Bucher snapped, "It is very unfortunate that some of the highest elected officials in our country are trying to disrupt our democracy because they don't like the demographics of our voters".

"Just out - in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON'T MATCH". Trump took aim at Elias in a tweet Friday.

She was appointed in 1993 by President Bill Clinton as the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court . Doctors at George Washington University Hospital found three broken ribs on her left side.

The same is true in 2 Florida elections, for Senate and governor.

Ashley Moody, Republican candidate for attorney general, received more than 52 percent of the Keys vote over her opponent Sean Shaw.

Ms Snipes and Ms Bucher did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Broward county leans heavily Democratic, meaning the different ballots could have resulted in fewer votes for Nelson.

Undecided races in Tuesday's midterm US elections are keeping the states of Florida, Georgia and Arizona on edge.

The margin in the Senate race of 0.18 percentage points meant the race was headed to a lengthy hand recount, triggered by law with margins of less than 0.25 percentage points.

Broward County is at the center of the controversy in part because almost 25,000 more votes were cast for governor than for the Senate, a discrepancy larger than the current margin between Nelson and Scott.

The Senate race in Arizona between two United States congresswomen, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally, appeared days away from a final call with hundreds of thousands of ballots yet to be tallied. Campaign spokesperson Dan McLaughlin said, "The goal here is to see that all the votes in Florida are counted and counted accurately".

Teen Charged with Pre-Meditated Murder in Death of Mother
Police say Ramos and his mother got into a awful argument after he came home with a "D" in one of his subjects. Chitwood said Ramos admitted to strangling his mother to death Friday morning after an argument over a grade.

"And Rick Scott who won by, you know it was close, but he won by a comfortable margin, every couple of hours it goes down a little bit", he added.

In the Senate race, Scott had a lead over Nelson Friday afternoon of just more than 16,000 votes, or 0.19 percent, according to The Associated Press.

Who won these races? "It is time to move on!"

Only about 15,000 votes separate the candidates. Bill Nelson's reelection campaign has filed a lawsuit against Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner over vote-by-mail ballots and the process used to validate them. Gillum was 0.4% behind DeSantis on Friday morning, with 99.98% of the vote counted.

Election Day was on Tuesday, but for races in a number of states, it's not over yet.

"Well, it could be", Trump said when asked if the federal government could get involved, "because if you look at Broward, and Palm Beach to a lesser extent, if you look at Broward County, they have had a terrible history".

"This serves as an outright disenfranchisement and burden on the right to vote", Marc Elias, a lawyer with the Nelson campaign, told reporters during a conference call Friday.
