FULL TITLE: Pro-Abortion Andrew Gillum Withdraws Concession, But Pro-Life Ron DeSantis Leads as Florida Recount Begins
And just like, the Florida gubernatorial race will be recounted!
The news was announced Saturday in the race between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum. The secretary of state announced that the razor-thin races for governor, as well as senator, and agriculture commissioner will be reviewed in a series of recounts, CNN reports.
Hours later. Gillum withdrew his concession, saying that he recognized that his fate in this may or may not change.
Let me say clearly, I am replacing my words of concession with an uncompromising and unapologetic call that we count every single vote, he said at a Saturday news conference.
At final count, DeSantis led Gillum by a mere 34,000 votes, adding up to less than half a percent.
DeSantis acknowledged the news with a video saying that he was honored by the trust that Floridians have placed in me to serve as your next governor.
With the election behind us, its now time to come together as a state as we prepare to serve all Floridians, DeSantis said. Since Tuesday night, that is what I have been doing and that is what I will continue to do in the days and weeks ahead as I prepare to take office as the 46th Governor of the State of Florida.

Gillum on Saturday also called out recent remarks from President Donald Trump, Sen. Marco Rubio and Gov. Rick Scott, over the last few days.
What has also changed since election night have been the chorus of voices from the President of the United States, the junior senator of the state of Florida, and the governor of the state of Florida a chorus calling for the ending of the counting in this process, Gillum said.
Democrats have been accused of trying to steal the election away from DeSantis.
Praying for the Pro-life guy to win.

Gillum is a pig, and he does whatever PP tells him to do.
I took the time to learn of his ‘checkered’ history - [I’m a NYer -Red County/Blue State] Gillum is only a player in the game because PP has ‘funded’ him.

DeSantis scored 14% on the PP scale..
I read an article that said the typical results of a recount result in about a 300 vote difference.
he’s going to have to withdraw his withdrawal. they can’t print enough ballots in time to throw this election.
It’s absurd to refer to either of their stances on abortion. It’s a non-issue in gubernatorial races. For now, it’s a federal matter thanks to judicial fiat a generation ago. If there’s to be an amendment to the Constitution either for or against abortions, it’s will start in either Congress, the state legislatures, or a Constitutional Convention. If Roe’s overruled by the Trump court, then the governors might have a role in supporting or opposing legislation in their respective states. But that is far from imminent, if it ever does happen.
That being said, I pray for the pro-low-taxes, 2nd-Amendment, lax-regulatory guy to win.
