Trump Warns of 'Election Fraud' in Fla Senate Vote

Thursday, 08 November 2018 10:22 PM

President Donald Trump is weighing in on Florida's hotly contested Senate race, citing the possibility of election fraud.

Trump tweets: "Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach. Florida voted for Rick Scott!"

Republican Gov. Rick Scott held a 0.21 percentage point lead over Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson on Thursday afternoon.

As outgoing governor, Scott said at a news conference Thursday night that he was ordering the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate elections offices in the Democratic strongholds of Palm Beach and Broward counties.

Nelson's campaign released a statement saying Scott's action appears to be politically motivated and borne of desperation.
