Florida’s Senate Race Is Headed Into a Recount

Florida’s Senate race seems to be heading to a recount, barring any drastic twists. Republican Rick Scott is up about 35,000 votes on incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. While a solid lead, that’s still less than 0.5 percent, the margin threshold that automatically triggers a recount under Florida law.

Scott had already declared victory overnight, unlike two other senatorial candidates currently ahead in too-close-to-call races: Martha McSally in Arizona and Matt Rosendale in Montana. An adviser for Bill Nelson said Scott was the likely winner Tuesday night as well, but the campaign said Wednesday morning after results narrowed that it would request a recount.
