Florida Heads to Machine Recount in Senate, Governor's Races

Florida's senate race, and its gubernatorial contest are both headed for recounts.

The Florida secretary of state  ordered machine recounts  in those races, after the margins in the unofficial vote tally for both fell below a half of one percent.  Fewer  than 15,000 votes  — 0.15 percent — separated incumbent Sen.

Bill Nelson and his opponent, Florida  governor Rick Scott  at last count.

The gap in the governor's race, between Democrat Andrew Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis is  reportedly a little wider  at 0.41 percent.

The state agricultural commissioner's race will also be recounted.  On the back of the recount announcement, Gillum  withdrew his concession  on Twitter, writing, "I am replacing my earlier concession with an unapologetic and uncompromised call to count every vote." In a machine recount, each ballot is  run through a tabulating machine  and the totals are checked against the initial unofficial results.

If the margin after the machine recount is below 0.25 percent, then officials have to do another recount by hand.  The deadline for the machine recount is Thursday, and any subsequent manual recount would have to be finished the following Sunday.  Additional reporting by  Newsy affiliate CNN .
