Democrat Andrew Gillum conceded to Republican Ron DeSantis in Florida on election eve but has now claimed he wants to wait for some absentee ballots to come in. Senator Marco Rubio is sounding the alarm about this with tweets detailing his opinion on why this is bad news for Republicans:

Florida law requires counties report early voting & vote-by-mail within 30 minutes after polls close. 43 hours after polls closed 2 Democrat strongholds Broward County & Palm Beach County are still counting & refusing to disclose how many ballots they have left to count.

“They are here to change the results of the election”

Rubio points to Broward County as the place that’s suspect because they have a history of violating the law:

Gillum released a statement backtracking on his concession and saying every vote should count. The Sun Sentinal reports there will likely be a recount:

As Broward, Palm Beach vote counting continues, statewide recounts likely in governor, Senate, Ag commissioner races

Controversial: Brenda C. Snipes, Broward County Supervisor of Elections has been a controversial figure in the past.
