Florida to hold recount of US Senate and governor votesThree days after the election, Florida has ordered a machine recount to be done in the gubernatorial race between Democrat Andrew Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis as well as the US Senate race between Democrat Bill Nelson and Republican Rick Scott, who is also the current governor. Mr Scott currently leads Mr Nelson by just 12,500 votes – or 0.15 per cent – while Mr DeSantis holds a 0.41 per cent, or approximately 34,000 vote, lead over Mr Gillum, who is attempting to become the state’s first African American governor.
