"Nelson relied on fraud when he attacked Gov. Rick Scott's record, Nelson relied on fraud when he misrepresented his Senate record, and now, he is hoping that voter fraud will help him hang on to power", Jackie Schutz Zeckman, Scott's campaign manager, said in statement. Shortly before midnight, Scott, flanked by his family, addressed supporters in Naples.He acknowledged the combative nature of the race, in which Scott and his supporters repeatedly characterized Nelson, 76, as verging on senility.
Scott's campaign and the NRSC will also have access to those ballots, per the judge's ruling. But lawyers for Scott contended the information is already required to be collected under state law and should take minutes to provide.
Across the state, county canvassing boards will meet Friday to continue counting and rejecting provisional ballots. Today the Florida Department of Law Enforcement stated, "This morning we spoke with the Department of State and they indicated they had no criminal allegations of fraud".
Votes are still being counted in Broward County, according to Elias. In that race, incumbent Sen.
Scott announced the suit and his call for an investigation at a press conference at the governor's mansion Thursday night. Under state law in Florida, a recount is mandatory if the winning candidate's margin is less than 0.5 percentage points.
Scott says "unethical liberals" are trying to steal the election.
Florida faced the prospect of recounts in the razor-thin races for governor and U.S. Senate, potentially prolonging the battle over two of this year's most-closely watched campaigns. Senate candidate Bill Nelsonclaimed that Scott's actions were "politically motivated" and Snipes claimed that the accusations against her were "blown out of proportion". The race remains too close to call, with Nelson narrowly trailing Scott.
A judge found Broward County violated the constitution by not following open records laws and ordered election officials to comply by 7 p.m. on November 9.
"Let's be clear: When Elias says 'win, ' he means 'steal.'" The campaign said in a statement.

"Every couple of hours, it goes down a little bit", Trump said of Scott's margin.
A lawyer for Nelson criticized Scott for using his official position to try to influence ballot counting. "But you know what?" In that race, Florida, which held the balance of power in the Electoral College, was decided in favor of Bush by.01%, or fewer than 1,000 votes, after the Supreme Court halted an ongoing recount.
A hearing began just after 3 p.m. Friday.
In response, the governor has ordered the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to immediately investigate Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Mr Trump weighed in with a tweet on the Senate race, citing the possibility of election fraud.
But Abrams' campaign believes there could be enough uncounted votes to bring Kemp below the majority threshold and trigger a second round of voting. Republican former Rep. Ron DeSantis won that race according to Election Night returns, and Andrew Gillum, the progressive Democratic mayor of Tallahassee conceded. DeSantis led Gillum by 0.47 percentage point as of Thursday afternoon.
The news stood in stark contrast to the apparent posturing of the opposite by Republican officials who were complaining that Snipes, who is overseeing vote tabulation, was working to give votes to Democratic candidates in the Senate and gubernatorial elections.
