Former Sen. Norm Coleman, R-Minn., said Tuesday that the Republican candidates for Senate and governor in Florida will win despite the recount currently underway.

“I was up 756 votes on election night,” in 2008, Coleman said on CNN’s “New Day” Tuesday morning, according to the Daily Caller. He went on to lose that election to former Democratic Sen. Al Franken.

Florida is currently conducting a recount of the races between Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis for governor, and Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott, along with the state commissioner of agriculture.

“When the machines were certified Nov. 18, which is what will happen in Florida, it will be Gov. DeSantis,” Coleman continued. “He’ll be ahead on the machine count. I think it will be beyond kind of the margin of calls for mandatory hand recount. And so that race should be taken care of.”

He added that the same legal team in charge of his recount is leading the Democratic races in Florida, and said they are “very good with coming up with votes after the election is over.”

“But even by our standards, the numbers are just so great in the race, in the Scott race and the Gillum race, that I can’t even conceive that there’d be any possibility of the results been changed — any possibility,” he said.
