Earlier this year, the county's elections supervisor Brenda Snipes was found by a judge to have destroyed ballots that she was required to preserve.

For demanding that Broward adhere to state law, Rubio was accused of to trying to stop some votes from being counted. Among other things, the infamous punch-card ballots are no longer. Trump continued in a Thursday tweet shortly after Scott sat for an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity.

Scott's campaign has written off the attempt by Nelson's campaign to challenge the results of the election. Scott leads incumbent U.S. Sen. Florida responded with a law requiring a statewide machine recount if the final result is within half a percentage point, and a hand recount if the result is within a quarter percentage point. A manual recount must be finished by Sunday, Nov. 18, and could start as early as Sunday.

President Trump himself has gone after Snipes, telling reporters Friday, "She has had a terrible history ... and all of a sudden they're finding votes out of nowhere".

"What's going on in Florida is a disgrace".

In the lawsuit, Scott claims Broward County officials are hiding critical information about the number of votes cast and counted. A spokeswoman for the agency said there was no active investigation.

"The outrageous ballot-counting issues in Broward County are un-American and unacceptable", Rep. Matt Gaetz said in a statement. Bill Nelson. Scott declared victory in Tuesday's election, but Nelson has not conceded and ballot-counting continues. The race remained too close to call with at least 400,000 ballots still uncounted. This is not a third world dictatorship.

Midterm election a ‘big day’ for Republicans
Texas is set to send its first Hispanic women to Congress, as Democrats Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia both won their races. The Democrats, in turn, benefited from extraordinary voter enthusiasm, robust fundraising and unusually fresh candidates.


As it stands, counties across Florida have until noon on Saturday to submit their unofficial totals.

But reports have poured in from voters complaining that their ballots had been improperly rejected; one came from Patrick Murphy, the former Democratic congressman from Palm Beach who tweeted: "Just saw notice from PBCounty that my absentee ballot wasn't counted due to "invalid signature" match".

Numbers released by the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Friday, Nov. 9, show Sen.

"Don't steal our election!" they shouted in chants alternated with songs including "The Star Spangled Banner" and reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Following Elias' call with reporters, the Scott campaign - which filed a lawsuit against Broward and Palm Beach counties over public records he claimed weren't provided to his campaign - shot back, calling today's legal filing by the Nelson campaign "desperate".

"More ballots came in", said Joyce Griffin, Monroe County's supervisor of elections. Eventually a judge ruled that the law had been violated. With each new tabulation, several key races have gotten closer including the Senate race, the gubernatorial race, and the race for agriculture commissioner. The suit, filed in Palm Beach County, also accuses Bucher of keeping the county canvassing board from performing its duties. Instead of listing them in one column, she broke the names into two columns. On the right were five lines - four minor party candidates and a space for a write-in.

"Now in Arizona, all of a sudden, out of the wilderness, they find a lot of votes, and she's - the other candidate - is just winning by a hair", Trump said.
