Florida Senate Race Going to Hand Recount; Appears that Nelson’s Best Hope is That Broward Ballot-Counting Machines, Rather Than Ballot Design, Responsible for Large Undervote in Senate Race

Tampa Bay Times:

With the 3 p.m. deadline for elections supervisors to submit new vote tallies to the state having now passed in Florida’s Panhandle, new totals show that Gov. Scott leads U.S. Sen. Nelson by 12,603 votes out of more than 8.1 million cast. That margin — of 0.15 percent — falls within the margins that trigger an automatic hand recount under Florida law. Secretary of State Ken Detzner, Florida’s top elections officials, ordered a hand recount this afternoon.
