Democrat Andrew Gillum completed his hard-won campaign for the Florida governor on Saturday, just a few hours before the counties have to turn into their official results after days of voting.
Gillum, in a video he published on Facebook, congratulated Republican Ron DeSantis but promised to remain politically active even though he did not give any clues as his plans for the future. His mandate as Mayor of Tallahassee ends next week.
“This has been our journey of life,” said Gillum, who appeared in the video with his wife, R. Jai Gillum. “Although nobody wanted to be a governor more than me, it was not just a election cycle. It was about creating the kind of change in this situation that really allows the voices of everyday life to return to our government.” [1

Smattering of results published on Saturday showed that Democratic American sen Bill Nelson received only a few hundred votes in his Bitter Contest with Outgoing Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican.
State officials ordered manual recalculation earlier this week after a legally mandatory machine audit showed that Scott led the existing Democrat Bill Nelson with about 12 600 votes. More than 8 million voters cast votes in the race.
Florida’s high profile governor’s race was also close, but not enough to trigger a countdown.
Lands have until dinner on Sunday to submit their official results, but it seems that the gap is too long for Nelson to close. The Nelson campaign has stopped quietly, as the last number has come closer.
Nelson and Democrats left several legal cases after the next election and challenged everything from the state’s signature of inconsistent compliance with deadlines for mail-in voting.
Nelson campaign managed to secure only one victory in court. US District Judge Mark Walker gave voters until 5 pm Saturday to fix their votes if they were not counted due to incorrect signatures. Nearly 5,700 denominations were rejected because signatures on the vote did not match the signatures held on file by election officials.
However, Walker rejected further trials, including one who tried to change the rules used in the inspection of voting.
If the 76-year-old Nelson l is owning, it would probably spell an end to a long political career that stretches back four decades. Nelson was first elected to the United States Senate 2000. A profit for Scott would mark his third victory since the multimillionaire businessman launched his political career in 2010. During each race, Scott has barely fought his democratic opponent.
State Law requires a machine bill in races where the margin is 0.5 percentage points or less. When this report was completed, if the differences in any of the competitions are 0.25 percentage points or less, a bill will be ordered. Local charts only review polls where voting was not recorded by voters. 19659002] Until 2000, the state became the target of ridicule under the president’s presidential chaotic recount, which eventually won George W. Bush with 537 votes.
