Ron DeSantis Responds to Florida Recount: The ‘Results are Clear and Unambiguous’
On Saturday, Republican Ron DeSantis responded to Florida’s recount by saying that the results are “clear and unambiguous.”
“Those results are clear and unambiguous, just as they were on Election Night,” DeSantis said in the video first posted to YouTube.
Stressing it is important to follow the law, he added: “With the election behind us, it’s now time to come together as a state as we prepare to serve all Floridians.”
Earlier today, Democratic gubernatorial challenger Andrew Gillum withdrew his concession.
“Let me say clearly I am replacing my words of concession with an uncompromised and unapologetic call that we count every single vote, that we count every vote,” Gillum said in his announcement. “And I say this recognizing that my fate in this may or may not change.”
A recount of the US Senate and governor’s race was ordered by Florida’s secretary of state earlier today.
President Donald Trump has also weighed in on the Florida election, writing on Twitter on Nov. 10: “Trying to STEAL two big elections in Florida! We are watching closely!”
