Almost one week since election night and two states still have outstanding races. In Georgia, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams filed a federal lawsuit Sunday asking a judge to delay certification of Georgia's vote by one day to be sure officials count any votes that were wrongly rejected. Unofficial returns show Kemp with about 50.3 percent of the vote. Abrams hopes to pick up enough provisional votes and other uncounted ballots to push Kemp's margin below the 50 percent threshold he needs to avoid a runoff. Kemp campaign spokesman Ryan Mahoney said in a statement Monday that Abrams had "moved from desperation to delusion." While if Florida the governor's race and a Senate race are still without winners. All 67 counties face a Thursday deadline to complete recounts. Half began last weekend amid early drama focused on Broward and Palm Beach counties, home to large concentrations of Democratic voters. The recount was ordered Saturday after unofficial results showed Republican former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis leading Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum by 0.41 percentage points for governor. Scott's lead over Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson was 0.14 percentage points for the Senate. AP's Washington Bureau chief Julie Pace explains why they have become so significant, that even President Donald Trump has taken to twitter about one of them. "The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere," Trump tweeted early Monday. "Many ballots are missing or forged. An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night! Pace says Florida seems to be 'particularly significant because it's a hugely presidential battleground state." "If you look back at the 2016 campaign before election day, he (Trump) was suggesting that he might not accept the results of those elections if he lost. So when he sees the results in a race or ant...
A judge on Monday told lawyers representing the warring sides in the Florida recount that they need to "ramp down the rhetoric" alleging illegal activity surrounding the process because it's eroding the public's confidence in the election, when no evidence of fraud has been presented. The order by the judge to the lawyers in the case happened during an emergency hearing in Broward County on a motion by lawyers for Rick Scott's Senate campaign asking law enforcement to impound Broward County's voting machines and ballots when they're not being used during the Florida recount. The recount is already secured by police outside and deputies inside, with both parties and campaigns monitoring the entire process. But Scott's campaign insists Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes has a history of violating state law during vote-counting. "This is about protecting the vote," said Jason Zimmerman, an attorney for Rick Scott's Senate campaign. "It's the integrity of the election system that's at stake here. There are allegations and evidence submitted in our verified complaint in our motion to this court that the supervisor of election in Broward County has engaged, not just in this election but in prior elections, of election issues, irregularities. And in fact illegal conduct," he continued. A lawyer for Snipes said Scott's campaign is attempting to use the court to imply the likelihood of wrongdoing in case Governor Scott doesn't win the Florida Senate race. "You want to talk about what undermines our electoral process? That type of behavior, that type of suggestion without any evidence," said Eugene Pettis, the lawyer for Brenda Snipes, Broward's supervisor of elections. Circuit Chief Judge Jack Tuter said he's seen no evidence of wrongdoing in the Broward County vote-counting but suggested to add another layer of confidence, the sides agree to add three additional sheriff's deputies to monitor the machines and ballots. He also urged lawyers on all sides to "ramp down the r...
