The Florida Secretary of State has ordered recounts in the U.S. Senate and governor’s races — as infuriated Republicans accuse Democrats of attempting to steal the election.
Gov. Rick Scott defeated incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson by more than 12,000 votes. And Rep. Ron DeSantis defeated Andrew Gillum to win the governor’s office.
However, Democrats in charge of local election boards keep finding thousands and thousands of uncounted ballots that all favor the Democrats.
Trying to STEAL two big elections in Florida! We are watching closely!

“Trying to STEAL two big elections in Florida! We are watching closely,” President Trump tweeted.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel lashed out at the head of the Broward County elections office.
“I think she’s incompetent at best, and I think this is intentional at worst,” she said on Fox News Channel. ”
Broward & Palm Beach supervisors are blatantly now violating court orders on transparency. @FLGovScott WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! #RemoveThem and have Sec of State (non-partisan role) turn all cards face up. #sayfie https://t.co/nTbxpEWkTR
