There Seems To Be A Recount Brewing In Florida Governor
By: Eboni Walker
On Tuesday night, Andrew Gillum and Ron DeSantis went head to head to serve as the next Governor of the State of Florida.
Although Gillum began the race in the lead, it didn’t last long. The score fluctuated for the majority of the night. As more votes floated in, DeSantis took the lead and kept it for the rest of the night.
Around 10:00 p.m., Dan Krauth with NBC tweeted there was an issue with sending in votes in Broward County. “Seven precincts in Broward couldn’t electronically submit votes, so they’re driving results on jump drives to electronic headquarters.”
By the end of the night, there were reportedly still three USB jump drives that had not arrived at headquarters.
Despite, Gillum conceded to DeSantis with 98% votes in. There was reportedly an 85,000 vote difference.
He announced to his supporters at Florida A&M University that the race was over.
