con­tin­ued ahead of the Sat­ur­day noon dead­line. Both Scott and Nel­son sought to get the courts to in­ter­vene.

Scott said “un­eth­i­cal lib­er­als” were try­ing to steal the elec­tion in Demo­cratic strongholds of Broward and Palm Beach coun­ties. He sug­gested some­thing was awry be­cause vote­coun­ters were tak­ing longer there than in other ju­ris­dic­tions, and his thin lead has kept nar­row­ing since elec­tion night. Late Fri­day, he led by 0.18 per­cent­age points, low enough to re­quire a re­count.

Of­fi­cial: Shooter de­bated san­ity on­line dur­ing bar mas­sacre

THOU­SAND OAKS, Calif. — The gun­man who killed 12 peo­ple at a coun­try mu­sic bar in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia went on so­cial me­dia dur­ing the at­tack and posted about his men­tal state and whether peo­ple would be­lieve he was sane, a law en­force­ment of­fi­cial said Fri­day.

Also, one of the pos­si­bil­i­ties in­ves­ti­ga­tors are look­ing into is whether gun­man Ian David Long be­lieved his for­mer girl­friend would be at the bar, the of­fi­cial said.

Au­thor­i­ties have not de­ter­mined a mo­tive for Wed­nes­day night’s ram­page at the Border­line Bar and Grill.

The of­fi­cial was briefed on the in­ves­ti­ga­tion but not au­tho­rized to dis­cuss it pub­licly and spoke to The As­so­ci­ated Press on con­di­tion of anonymity. The of­fi­cial would not give ad­di­tional de­tails on what the 28-year-old for­mer Marine posted on his Face­book and In­sta­gram ac­counts.

Nei­ther Face­book nor In­sta­gram re­sponded to a re­quest for com­ment Fri­day.
