Florida Governor's Race Poised for Mandatory Recount

Misfire’ MSNBC Airs Fake Graphic Showing Andrew Gillum Winning Florida Vote			Screenshots MSNBC Arr BNN		6 Nov 2018

Abrams could become the first African-American woman governor. President Donald Trump fired up Florida's conservative base and pushed DeSantis to victory in the primary. Gillum supports a ban on assault weapons and wants to repeal Florida's stand your ground law. We couldn't be prouder. "We recognize that we didn't win this tonight". She said Democrats set up phone banks and began calling those voters, urging them to go to county offices to present their identification information so that their ballots will count. "We stood up we stood strong we spoke out because we recognize that we had power".

Republican candidate for Florida governor Ron DeSantis speaks during an event put on by the Police Benevolent Association in Palm Beach County, on October 3, 2018.

Florida solidified its status as Trump Country this week, reinvigorating Republicans and dispiriting Democrats as the consummate swing state sets the stage for a possible three-peat in 2020.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott is projected to defeat incumbent Democratic Sen.

The race for Agriculture Commissioner and U.S. Senate also appear headed for recounts, although those races are closer and will likely force the state to conduct recounts by hand, which is required when the margins between two candidates are within a quarter of a percent. Fox News called the race for Scott on Tuesday night by 50.4 percent to 49.6 percent, with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

"The true story of this race is intense gratitude to President Trump".

Trump was heavily invested in the race, making two visits to the state in the final week of the campaign. The president endorsed DeSantis in June.

On Twitter Trump said: "I will be doing a news conference at The White House - 11:30 A.M".

DeSantis tried to connect with working-class families by pointing out in campaign ads that his first job paid $6 an hour and that he later traded in his work boots for military boots, highlighting his service in Iraq.

The big victor: You guessed it, the Democrat on the ticket, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who managed to secure a victory.

The races in Florida and Georgia were seen as a test of whether liberal candidates could prevail in Southern states, where centrist Democrats have repeatedly lost, by appealing to a coalition of young and minority voters.

In turn, Gillum was assailed over alleged ties to a radical far-left group associated with anti-Semitism and Palestinian terrorism.

"She will be, when she takes office, the highest-ranking Hispanic female in the history of the state of Florida", DeSantis said.

But the Tallahassee mayor was forced to defend himself against accusations of wrongdoing related to an FBI investigation of city government, which became a cornerstone of DeSantis' campaign.

But concession speeches are not legally binding.

"My most significant and valued supporter is standing right next to me, despite what the media might say", DeSantis said of his wife Casey.
