    GOP senator-elect holding onto governor post until Ron DeSantis takes over Florida Sen.-elect Rick Scott has opted to remain governor of the Sunshine State until Republican Ron DeSantis takes over, delaying his swearing-in for the Senate to Jan. 8. His fellow senators-elect will join the chamber on Jan. 3 at the start of the 116th Congress. “Gov. Scott will remain governor until January 8th, 2019,” John Tupps, a spokesman for Scott, told the Tampa Bay Times. “U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has agreed to hold the ceremony for Governor Scott's swearing-in as U.S. senator from Florida that afternoon.” Tupps...

    Broward County incident reports and photo evidence prove conclusively that Broward County election workers broke the law in numerous instances during the 2018 election. As Broward election supervisor Brenda Snipes fights to hold onto her pension, the conduct of poll workers is coming under scrutiny, including a poll worker at Lauderhill mall, where Snipes’ office is based. The incident reports describe poll workers telling voters how to vote, touching their ballots, handing out Democratic flyers to voters, allowing people to bring Democrat advertisements inside and to use their phones, and encouraging people to fill out blank spaces on ballots at...

    Gov. Rick Scott late Friday suspended embattled Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes even though Snipes had already agreed to step down from her post in early January. Scott replaced Snipes with his former general counsel even though Peter Antonacci has no elections experience. Snipes responded by rescinding her previous resignation — and will now be "fighting this to the very end," her attorney said during a Saturday news conference. "We believe these actions are malicious," said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, who said that Broward County voters should be concerned about what Scott is trying to do in the Democratic stronghold...

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Friday suspended Brenda Snipes from her duties as the supervisor of elections in Broward County, and chose her temporary successor following the contentious recount in the state’s governor and U.S. Senate races during the midterm elections earlier this month. Scott, who is headed to the Senate after defeating Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, faulted Snipes for “misfeasance, incompetence and neglect of duty” in a news release announcing his decision made via executive order.

    The narratives of the midterm elections were set when suburban voters turned against President Trump, women racked up record numbers of electoral wins and Republicans dominated rural states and counties. But dive deeper into the results and some more surprising storylines emerge, from familial ties to long shot candidates, expanding suburbs and new battlegrounds. Here are the overlooked stories that didn’t get enough coverage after the polls closed. Did Puerto Ricans elect Rick Scott? When Hurricane Maria left Puerto Rico devastated in 2017, almost 400,000 of the island’s residents moved to the mainland. Many of them landed in Florida, where...

She’s ripping Kemp, she’s gonna run again, refusing to really accept the results of the election in formally conceding, just bitter and angry and calling for a boycott.

    You supposedly won’t have Brenda Snipes to kick around anymore. The subject of one of the more famous “Florida Woman” stories of late is reported to have resigned her position as Broward County Election Supervisor, taking effect in January. After numerous, spectacular failures in processing election results over the years, Saturday’s debacle of submitting their recount results two minutes after the deadline had passed was apparently a bridge too far and Ms. Snipes is stepping down. (Washington Times) Taking a page from the playbook of disgraced public officials around the country, Snipes reportedly wants to “spend more time with her...

    Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount on Sunday, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation. “It is true. She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office. Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day. Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time...

    Broward County once again proves that incompetence and ineptitude are the heart of their election process. Throughout this whole process, the county, a Democratic bastion, and it’s equally disastrous and liberal neighbor, Palm Beach County, have made a mockery of the 2018 election with their inability to count the friggin’ ballots. Republican Gov. Rick Scott had to file lawsuits in order to shed some light into their ballot counting processes, which a judge later found to be in violation of public records laws. They wouldn’t disclose how many outstanding ballots were left. Scott had declared victory over incumbent Sen. Bill...

    Following a protracted recount battle, three-term incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson conceded Sunday, acknowledging GOPGov. Rick Scott has been elected to replace him in January. “Well, things worked out a little differently than Grace and I had hoped,” Mr. Nelson’s statement read. “But let me say, I by no measure feel defeated. And that’s because I have had the privilege of serving the people of Florida and our country for most of my life.” As he left the political stage, Mr. Nelson, 76, also took a parting shot at President Trump. “We have to move beyond a politics that aims...

    Incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., called Republican challenger Rick Scott on Sunday to concede their race, ending a protracted dispute between the rivals over the results of their tight election. "I just spoke with Senator Bill Nelson, who graciously conceded, and I thanked him for his years of public service," Scott said via a statement of Nelson, who had been vying for a fourth term in office. "Now the campaign truly is behind us, and that's where we need to leave it. We must do what Americans have always done: come together for the good of our state and our...

    Fresh off its bungled machine recount, Broward County’s second day of manual recounting temporarily stopped about an hour after it began Saturday when lawyers from both political parties pointed out that volunteers were counting the wrong ballots. Hundreds of volunteers spent most of Friday sorting through 32,000 overvotes and undervotes in the Senate race between incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Broward officials announced Friday night they had finished their manual recount. On Saturday, the volunteers started sorting about 22,000 undervotes and overvotes in the contentious contest for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture. That came to a grinding...

    Sen. Bill Nelson has run out of time, run out of favorable court rulings and is about to officially run out of votes. After losing to Gov. Rick Scott on Election Day, losing after an automatic recount and appearing to not make up the gap following a manual recount Friday, Nelson’s campaign was dealt a mortal blow later that evening by U.S. District Judge Mark E. Walker, who crushed the Democrat’s last major hope by upholding a Florida law that forbids county election offices from counting vote-by-mail ballots received after 7 p.m. Election Day. “It’s done. But it was done...
