The State (Sunday) - - Nation -

The Florida sec­re­tary of state or­dered re­counts in the U.S. Se­nate and gover­nor races on Satur­day in the state that took five weeks to de­cide the 2000 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

Sec­re­tary Ken Det­zner is­sued the order af­ter the un­of­fi­cial re­sults in both races fell within the mar­gin that by law trig­gers a re­count.

Un­of­fi­cial re­sults show that Repub­li­can former U.S. Rep. Ron Desan­tis led Demo­cratic Tal­la­has­see Mayor An­drew Gil­lum by 0.41 per­cent­age points. For Se­nate, Repub­li­can Gov. Rick Scott’s lead over Demo­cratic in­cum­bent Bill Nel­son is 0.14 per­cent­age points.
