Democratic senate Bill Nelson of Florida on Monday urged his opponent Republican government Rick Scott to resign from “any role” in It is obvious that Scott can not monitor this process in a fair and impartial manner, Nelson said in a two minute video released by his campaign.
“And it is obvious that Scott can not monitor this process in a fair and impartial manner. So he should take away from any role in the recount process so that people can trust the election’s integrity. In view of his efforts to undermine Floridian’s voices, this is the only way we can ensure that the people’s voices are protected. “
The recount is being monitored by Secretary of State Ken Detzner, a Republican nominated for his 201
2 position by Scott.
Nelson accused his GOP opponent of not being “interested in ensuring that all legal voices count” and “using his power as governor to attempt to undermine the vote.” The Democrat pointed to Scotts proposal without proof that Unfortunate “voter fraud” can take place in the democratic headquarters of Broward and Palm Beach County.
“He stood on the steps of the governor’s mansion and attempted to use the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate Broward’s election manager,” Nelson said. “He has requested trials to try to stop voting from counting and counting voters. The reason he does these things is obvious: he is worried when all votes count, he will lose the election.”
Nelson’s video comes as recount the battle between him and Scott has warmed up. On the election day, Scott was ready to defeat the long-standing commander. However, as more votes have been counted in counties such as Broward and Palm Beach, Scotts management has reduced to the point where an auto-machine review under Florida law is triggered.

Republicans like Scott and President Donald Trump have insisted that Democrats try to “steal” the election, each suggesting that fraudulent voter fraud can take place in the most important democratic leaning counties.
“Every floridian should be worried that there may be sad deception that happens in Palm Beach and Broward Counties,” Scott said on Thursday. “We have all seen the incompetence and irregularities in the polling tables in Broward and Palm Beach for years. Well, here we go again. I will not be idiotically, while unethical liberals try to steal this choice from Florence’s great people.”
No evidence Such fraud has occurred. State election officials said they have not seen any evidence of fraud.
On Monday morning, Scott has a lead of approximately 13,000 votes, while the former GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis has an edge of about 33,000 votes over the Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in the controversy of governor who also goes through an automatic conversion.
NBC News has rated DeSantis as the obvious winner and Senate leadership to call too close.
Trump entered Monday morning and requested an end to recount and for the Republicans to be victorious. Without offering any evidence, Trump claimed that the votes were “massively infected”.
