"Let's blame the Russians and demand an immediate apology from President Putin!" Bill Nelson is awaiting results against Republican challenger Gov. Rick Scott, Trump narrowly won the state by less than 1.5 percentage points. The Broward County ballot was designed so that the Senate race appeared in the lower left-hand corner, below the instructions, spurring the theory that many voters missed the contest. Scott leads incumbent U.S. Sen. Scott's lead earlier had been around 35,000 votes, or just under 0.5 percentage points.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said Scott did not submit his request in writing, and that no allegation of voter fraud in Broward has been sent to the Department of State, which oversees elections. Secretary of State Ken Detzner, a Scott appointee, will review the results and decide whether to order recounts.
"Rick Scott, who won by ― you know, it was close, but he won by a comfortable margin ― every couple of hours it goes down a little bit", Trump said before boarding Marine One to start his weekend trip to France. "I think that people have to look at it very, very cautiously".
