TALLAHASSEE, Fla. | Possible recounts loom in tight Florida gov, Senate contests
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Razor-thin margins in Florida‘s bitter races for the U.S. Senate and governor are raising the specter of possible recounts, potentially prolonging two of the most closely watched contests of the nation’s midterm elections.
In the governor’s race, Democrat Andrew Gillum’s campaign said Thursday it’s readying for a possible recount. He conceded to Republican Ron DeSantis on Tuesday night, though the race has since tightened. As of Thursday afternoon, DeSantis led Gillum by 0.47 percentage point.
