Florida U.S. Senate race between Rick Scott, Bill Nelson could be heading for recount

Florida’s hotly contested race for the U.S. Senate could be heading for an automatic recount.

Republican Rick Scott held a 30,239-vote lead over incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson out of more than 8.1 million ballots cast for a difference of 0.38 percent, according to unofficial returns posted Wednesday by the state Division of Elections.

State law triggers a recount if the difference in a race is less than 0.5 percent. So if the returns stand, the state will count the ballots again.

In the governor’s race, Republican Ron DeSantis’ lead over Democrat Andrew Gillum narrowed to 0.62 percent as more votes were tabulated but still remained outside the margin to spur a recount as of Wednesday afternoon.
