No allegations of criminal activity in Florida election, law enforcement says

Gillum Back in the Governor's Hunt; Caldwell Slips behind Fried in Ag Race

Florida midterm election LEGAL ACTION demanded as Republican warns of FRAUD

"Nelson than voted for Gov. Scott", Elias said.

Elias said he has already filed suit in federal court in North Florida to block a state law that requires a match between the signature on a ballot envelope to the one on file at the local elections office.

Election Day was on Tuesday, but for races in a number of states, it's not over yet.

"I will not stand idly by while unethical liberals try to steal an election", Scott said, criticizing what he claimed was "rampant fraud" in the race.

That could change however, as ballots continue to be counted in Broward, which is Florida's second largest and one of its most Democratic counties where 1.2 million people are registered to vote. But unlike Scott, DeSantis decidedly defeated Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum with nearly 52 percent of the vote among Keys voters choosing the next governor.

Scott's thin lead over Nelson has narrowed during the vote-counting in the days since he declared victory Tuesday night.

Trump later weighed in, tweeting Thursday evening: "Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach".

The 93-year-old was among 509 voters in Lee County who had been given a provisional ballot.

When another journalist asked about the Florida race, Trump lit into the subject, telling us about "bad things" that have gone on in Broward County, Florida, the place where votes are being counted in a Senate race between Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Bill Nelson.

The high profile political attorney was hired by the Nelson campaign and predicted Thursday in a conference call with reporters that Nelson can still win.

Elias believes that most of the absentee and provisional ballots that have yet to be counted will only serve to reduce that margin. Caldwell lost by 3,005 votes to Fried.

High-profile U.S. elections in Florida remained unresolved and the prospect of legal challenges, recounts and ballot reviews are setting the stage for possible weeks of uncertainty.

"This is a clear violation of Florida law", Scott said. For all other races, county canvassing boards are responsible for ordering a recount.

Protesters held signs that said, "Brenda Snipes has to go", "stop creating votes" and "don't steal our election".

A Florida judge on Friday ruled in favor of GOP Gov. Rick Scott and said that Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes must "allow immediate" viewing and copying of records that Scott's team had requested.

"If you look at Broward County, they have had a disgusting history", he said, "and if you look at the person, in this case a woman, involved, she has had a awful history, and all of a sudden, they're finding votes out of nowhere".

Mr Kemp now leads at 50.3% to Abrams' 48.7%, according to AP data, but it could take until next week to tally all the votes.

While en route to France for ceremonies marking the end of World War I, Trump's tweet storm included criticisms of Florida elections officials and allegations of fraud.

7News cameras captured the chaotic scene after supporters of DeSantis' Democratic opponent, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, showed up in front of the Lauderhill building to demand that every ballot is counted.
