Sink Waits for All Votes to be Counted
In a nailbiter contest in one of the nationâs most heated gubernatorial races, Florida has yet to declare a winner. With Rick Scott collecting 49% of the vote and Alex Sink 48% of the vote, votes continue to be counted.
Just after midnight, Alex Sink addressed the crowd in the grand ballroom of the Waterfront Marriott in downtown Tampa. With a smile on her face, she said the election results were turning out to be a nailbiter and a classic Florida election a dead-even race.
âNow, weâre Floridians, and we know what it means to count every single vote," proudly said Sink.
Hundreds of thousands of votes are still to be counted in Palm Beach County, Broward, Miami-Dade and even Hillsborough.
âSo this is what weâre going to do. Weâre going let the people of Floridaâ¦all the people of Floridaâ¦.have their voices heard," exclaimed Sink.
Now, I spoke with one of Sinkâs press representatives who couldnât comment on how far Sink will take this, that is, at which point she will call for a recount. However, she did say that according to Floridaâs election laws, an automatic recount will go ahead when the votes come within a 0.5% margin.comments powered by Disqus
