The first election workers have begun the enormous task of recounting ballots in Florida's bitterly close races for the U.S. Senate and governor, ramping up their efforts after the secretary of state ordered a review of the two nationally watched contests.
"In the 2016 Election I was winning by so much in Florida that Broward County, which was very late with vote tabulation and probably getting ready to do a 'number, ' couldn't do it because not enough people live in Broward for them to falsify a victory!"
In Arizona's ongoing Senate race, contested by two USA congresswomen, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema's lead over Republican Martha McSally had widened by Saturday evening to about 23,900 votes, or 1.17 percent.
The race for Florida governor is likely heading to a recount after Democrat-heavy counties tallied more ballots that allowed Andrew Gillum to narrow the margins against Republican Ron DeSantis by less than half a percentage point.
The accusations and lawsuits in the political battleground of Florida conjured memories of the state's 2000 presidential recount, when the victor of the White House hung in the balance for weeks before the US Supreme Court stopped the counting and Republican George W. Bush triumphed over Democrat Al Gore.
A lawyer for Nelson criticized Scott for using his official position to try to influence ballot counting. He suggested something was awry because vote-counters were taking longer there than in other jurisdictions, and his thin lead has kept narrowing since Election Night.

Elias said the practice leads to a "complete lack of uniformity" in how ballots are judged.
Scott has filed lawsuits against elections officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties and asked state law enforcement to investigate possible fraud.
Nelson's lawsuit, filed on Thursday, also seeks to extend the Saturday deadline for county canvassing boards to submit their unofficial results.
Almost twenty years ago, the "Sunshine State" (sunny state, his nickname) had already been talked about during the historic muddle of the American presidential election of 2000. The Broward Supervisor of Elections has determined four races will be recounted.
Clearly, Rick Scott is trying to stop all the votes from being counted and he's impeding the democratic process. After the official recount was announced on Saturday, Trump again tweeted, "Trying to STEAL two big elections in Florida!". Florida law requires a machine recount when the leading candidate's margin is 0.5 percentage points or less. On election night, Broward County said there were 634,000 votes cast.
