We Have a Winner: Bill Nelson Concedes to Rick Scott

It's finally over. After 12 tense days of recounts, which came with accusations and lawsuits, Sen. Bill Nelson (D) has conceded to Gov. Rick Scott (R) in the Florida Senate race. His win comes a day after Democrat Andrew Gillum conceded to Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis in the state’s gubernatorial election.

Scott had a 10,000-vote lead when the manual recount was complete, according to the Florida Secretary of State.

“Now the campaign truly is behind us, and that’s where we need to leave it,” Scott said, after revealing Nelson "graciously" called him to concede. “We must do what Americans have always done: come together for the good of our state and our country.”

President Trump shared the good news.

Nelson had served three terms in the Senate.

Two of Florida's 67 counties, Broward and Palm Beach, which Scott's advisers have referred to as "problem counties," managed to meet their recount deadlines by noon on Sunday. They cut it close though, with Palm Beach reportedly getting their totals in with seconds to spare. No, actually just one second.

Broward's Canvassing Board was a little faster, getting their tally in by 11:08 a.m. They capped off the accomplishment with "loud applause," according to the Sun Sentinel.
