Florida’s Republican Governor, Rick Scott, along with the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee has filed an appeal of a federal judge’s decision to give voters in Florida until Saturday to correct issues with their mail-in and provisional ballots.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has had enough of Donald Trump.
“Speaking in defense of Florida Sen. Nelson, who is fighting for his Senate seat, Minority Leader Schumer called for President Trump to “stop bullying, harassing and lying” about the Florida recount efforts.”
President Donald Trump declared that “an honest vote count is no longer possible” in the controversial Florida midterm elections for the state’s governor and U.S. Senate positions. The president is now claiming (with no evidence) that many of the ballots are “missing or forged.”
President Donald Trump has interjected himself into another election controversy. On Thursday evening he said that law enforcement was examining a “big corruption scandal” regarding “Election Fraud” in Florida. There are two Florida counties that have found themselves in the middle of an intense fight over vote counts in the state’s too-close-to-call U.S. Senate race.
With Hurricane Michael on a path to devastate 300 miles of northwest Florida coastline tomorrow afternoon, Florida Democrats want the voter registration deadline extended.
Michael is bringing to Florida’s northern Gulf Coast its most serious hurricane threat in decades, and the National Hurricane Center has said the devastation caused by storm surges may be greater than anything residents there have ever seen before. The storm will make landfall Wednesday as a major category 3 hurricane.
According to a highly-respected opinion poll released on Tuesday Democratic Senator Bill Nelson of Florida has taken a significant lead over his formidable GOP opponent, Governor Rick Scott.
The Quinnipiac University Poll is widely followed so the fact that its new poll shows Nelson with a seven point lead over Scott has captured national attention. It shows incumbent Nelson leading Scott by 53 percent to 46 percent among Florida likely voters.
A newly filed complaint has been lodged against Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Political Action Committee (PAC) for violating federal campaign fundraising laws.
The ‘New Republican PAC’ started by Scott had a stated purpose of “rebranding the Republican Party.” But recently it abruptly made a change from GOP rebranding to being used as a tool to elect Scott as a U.S. Senator in his race this year against Democratic incumbent senator Bill Nelson.
