Nelson gave his fight to keep his survival in power after days of distress and a tune; Continue to Sunday's Sunday day for the Florida counties to turn their official results. Florida will not officially verify the final installments to Tuesday, but the numbers showed that Nelson had a " Scott moved with just over 10,000 votes.
"He has been an excellent tour as well as very misleading experience," said Nelson in a statement. "I did not have an impact on this race but I still want to file the case again:" Public office is a public trust. "
The incredible desire of almost two weeks of high political drama in the state could deal most with the potential for a 76-year-old political career to be completed. He was elected for the First World War for 40 years, Nelson had been a Democrat who lived in a century when the Republicans sank to power in Florida. He went on to his first election in the U.S. Assembly. in 2000 and was a make his fourth attempt to re-election.
For Scott, President Donald Trump sent his challenge to challenge Nelson, He was the third lost influence after he jumped to politics for eight years ago.
& # 39; & # 39; Now the campaign is in fact behind us, and that's where we need to leave, "Scott said in a statement." We must do what the Americans were always: come together for good on our nation and our country. My focus will not be to look back, but on & # 39; do exactly what I'm running: a & # 39; make Washington work. & # 39; & # 39;
Trump congratulated Scott about his impact on Twitter: & # 39; & # 39; From one time Rick Scott did not. He was a great Governor and is even older in the representation of Florida people. Rick your news on having been so exciting and successful campaign! & # 39; & # 39;
After being clear that the race between Nelson and Scott would be reported to him; legally required, Nelson and Democrats put several legal issues that challenged everything from Scott's authority over a state election election to a post ballot date.
Nelson's campaign was only one advantage in the & # 39; court. Scottish District Judge Mark Walker voted up to 5 p.m. Saturday to settle their balloties unless they are counted because of illegal names. Nearly 5,700 ballots were rejected because signatures on wall envelopes were not identical to names held on file with election officers.
Walker refused an application with Democrats to routinely count on the ballots with illegal names. He also refused a request to terminate the diary for domestic letters even though they were posted before the Election Day. Under Florida law, voters who have been postponed within the United States must be at 7 p.m. election offices. on the Election Day to count. Ballot papers abroad are counted if they receive up to 10 days after the election.
The bruise statement continued to be as negative as a campaign.
Although both candidates were unhappy with key issues, they emphasized their character and ability initiatives. Scott spoke back to Nelson as an ineffective singer, and Scott Scott as a Trump fanguard who used to use the government office to pay his wealth.
Scott, a one-time and multimillionaire healthcare operator, left for politics eight years ago, when he rode a tea party party to the government office. Term terms stopped by re-election request.
As a state chief executive, Scott focused on creating jobs and turning around the Florida economy after his / her. decline. Instead of building these recordings during his campaign for the United Nations Assembly, Scott successfully influenced Nelson. He used more than $ 60 million of his money on a set of distribution ads.
When Scott first jumped, his contest was seen as one of the marching genera in the country. It was not long until the government race was erased: a comic competition between Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum, who became a proxy battle between Trump and his Democratic opponents.
The two candidates agree on issues from gun control to environmental policy to health care. Nelson was a strong supporter of the federal healthcare review that President Barack Obama sent to law, and Scott asked the law to be recalled and replaced.
Nelson and his companions were running advertisements who questioned Scott's behavior, saying he was a chief executive of Columbia's healthcare / ITT in federal fraud investigation. Although Scott has never been worried about & # 39; committing any crime, then their healthcare paid right to register $ 1.7 billion for Medicare fraud.
Democrats also bought if Scott opposed government opposition from which he and his wife were involved in companies that are in the process of being able to do so. doing a business in Florida, including a subsidiary of the largest electricity company in Florida. Scott has maintained that he does not control his holdings
