DeSantis: No reaction to race he declared 'over'

In the new politics of the recount it pays to fight to the bitter end

Democrat Andrew Gillum conceded Saturday to GOP challenger Ron DeSantis in Florida's contentious governor's race. In a Facebook video, Gillum didn't say what his plans for the future are, but told his supporters to stay tuned.

Adds Gillum, "This fight for Florida continues and I just wanted to thank you all for being along with us for at least this part of the journey, but the journey continues".

Gillum had conceded on Election Night to DeSantis when it appeared the Republican former congressman had won by a narrow, if insurmountable, margin.

The race went to a legally required recount, but after an initial machine recount DeSantis still led Gillum by more than 30,000 votes.

DeSantis said on Twitter, 'This was a hard-fought campaign.

The announcement came just hours before Florida's counties must turn in their official results after tense days of recounting ballots in both the gubernatorial and a U.S. Senate contest - two nationally watched midterm elections that have keep the presidential swing state on edge since Election Day. Counties are wrapping up a hand recount this weekend and must submit their official results by noon Sunday.

His second concession speech was conciliatory, unlike that of fellow Democrat and Georgia governor candidate Stacey Abrams, who ended her campaign on Friday with a blistering diatribe claiming voter suppression as a possible reason for her loss in that election.

"In the end, I believe that we will win", he wrote.

But Gillum issued only a brief statement saying, "It is not over until every legally cast vote is counted". Snipes did insist that the ballots were still in the elections building.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel posted video Saturday of Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes saying that 2,040 ballots had been "misfiled". Once that recount was complete, if the differences in any of the races are 0.25 percentage points or less, a hand recount is ordered.
