Finally. But they didn’t count all the votes or he would have had more. And notice how while they mention that Scott sued about Dem officials breaking the law, they don’t mention the court found in his favor. And they claim there was “no evidence’ of fraud when both the Feds and the state are looking into the altering of the election forms.
Via The Hill:
Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) has defeated Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) in a nationally watched Senate race that triggered two recounts and a series of bitter legal and public relations battles.
The contest came to an end on Sunday as a noon deadline passed for county election officials to submit the results of a hand recount that showed Scott leading Nelson by about 10,000 votes or about 0.12 percentage.
The hand recount was ordered after a machine recount showed the two candidates separated by only about 12,600 votes, or 0.15 points.
Shortly after the results came in, Scott released a statement saying Nelson had called to concede.
The latest results cemented Scott’s victory in a hard-fought race that stretched nearly two weeks past Election Day, when he appeared to edge out Nelson by less than 1 point.
Thank You The Hill and WZ.
