Florida U.S. Senate race between Nelson, Scott headed toward recount

Florida's U.S. Senate race is headed toward a recount, based on today's razor-thin margin. Unofficial results show U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson narrowly trailing GOP candidate Rick Scott by a little more than just 34,500 votes out of a total of 8.1 million ballots cast. That's less than a one-half percentage point difference. State law requires a recount when candidates are with one-half point.

Thank you,
Florida.

Things turned out a little differently than we had hoped, but I by no means feel defeated. Thank you to everyone who rallied to our cause. Never give up the fight. - Bill
