Florida Senate Race Heading for a Recount

Florida Senate Race Heading for a Recount Democrat Bill Nelson and Republican Rick Scott are currently separated by fewer than 35,000 votes, with Scott holding a very slim lead.

Nelson, a three-term incumbent, called for the recount after Scott's advantage shrunk to 0.4 percent.

This is within the one-half percent margin that triggers a recount under state law.

They have until noon on November 10 to complete the process.

The race between Scott and Nelson was one of the nation's most expensive and closely watched Senate contests.
