Emergency hearing in Rick Scott vs. Broward County lawsuit

Marx apparently found it a problem that Bucher's staff did not forward ballots to the canvassing board to decide if they were under or over votes. "This morning we spoke with the Department of State and they indicated that at this time they had no allegations of fraud".

After the leads by Republican candidates began to shrink to levels that could force recounts, the president on Friday joined in the partisan attack against Snipes, tweeting in part that Broward County has "miraculously started finding Democrat votes".

The tabulation of those votes will continue to narrow Scott's razor-thin lead over Nelson, Elias predicted.

The paper said statewide races for U.S. Senate and agriculture commissioner are within the machine recount window of half of 1 percent.

Jackie Schutz Zeckman is campaign manager for Gov. Rick Scott, who ran against Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen.

Scott declared himself the victor late Tuesday when he was projected to win the race by around 57,000 votes, according to a news release. Urban Hillsborough and Pinellas counties - where Nelson sought potent support -also came up short, with the Republican governor running stronger than expected.

Scott has accused county officials of conspiring to steal the election from him. Miller said Marx stated that she wasn't sure that's what "witnesses" meant but said the counting was over so she let it go. Elias said it was odd that the undervoting was happening at the top of the ticket, rather than downballot.

WPLG-TV in Miami reported Snipes had a "testy exchange" with one of the station's reporters Thursday as the elections supervisor was asked about the status of the recount. "No ragtag group of liberal activists or lawyers from DC will be allowed to steal this election from the voters in the state of Florida".

"In spite of the fact that we're a little bit down in the numbers, we're hopeful that every single vote will be counted in this race". Just 39,000 votes now separate the two men.

The ballots yet to be counted place both Scott and Ron DeSantis is perilous positions.

"So it has been over 48 hours since the polls closed, and Broward and Palm Beach counties are still finding and counting ballots, and the supervisors - Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher - can not seem to say how many ballots still exist or where these ballots came from, or where they have been", Scott said.

"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.

"The goal here is to see that all the votes in Florida are counted and counted accurately", he said. Bill Nelson who locked in a recount with Rick Scott for that seat.

On Friday afternoon, Judge Carol-Lisa Phillips of the 17th Judicial Circuit of Florida said the information should be made available by 7 p.m.

As of Thursday, DeSantis has a 0.7 percent lead on Gillum, with 4,052,118 votes to the Democrat's 3,996,679, according to the Naples Daily News.

In the governor's race, Democrat Andrew Gillum's campaign said Thursday it's prepared for a possible recount. The race has tightened since Gillum conceded Tuesday night to Republican Ron DeSantis.
