Florida to do re­count

Ottawa Sun - - NEWS -

Florida’s Se­nate and gover­nor’s races are go­ing to a re­count, trig­ger­ing a fren­zied process that will de­cide two key of­fices in the largest U.S. swing state.

The Repub­li­cans’ ad­van­tage in both races has fallen be­low the 0.5% thresh­old re­quired to trig­ger manda­tory ma­chine re­counts, Sec­re­tary of State Ken Det­zner said in a state­ment Satur­day.

The move quickly drew a re­buke from Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.

“Try­ing to STEAL two big elec­tions in Florida!” Trump tweeted.
