“Every day since the election the left-wing activists in Broward County have been coming up with more and more ballots out of nowhere,” Scott railed. “I will not sit idly by while unethical liberals try and steal this election from the great people of Florida.” The National Republicans Senatorial Committee is standing behind their guy, joining Scott to file a lawsuit against both Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes and Palm Beach Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher for failing to provide information to officials. Even President Donald trump is getting involved, tweeting that “law enforcement” would be looking into election fraud in the two counties.
His opponent, Nelson, blasted Scott’s outrage, saying that his action “appears to be politically motivated and borne out of desperation.”
Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach. Florida voted for Rick Scott!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 9, 2018
And the senate race is not the only hot button issue currently in Florida, the gubernatorial race between Democrat Andrew Gillum, who could be the first black governor in the state, and Republican Ron DeSantis seems to be well on its way toward a recount as well.
The goal here is to see that all the votes in Florida are counted and counted accurately. Rick Scott’s action appears to be politically motivated and borne out of desperation. https://t.co/ewN4eT8tXU— Nelson for U.S. Senate (@NelsonForSenate) November 9, 2018
