Bush Campaign: It's Obvious We Won

Friday, 10 November 2000 12:00 AM

Karen Hughes, Bush's communications director, pointed out, however, that overseas absentee ballots in Florida would not be counted until next Friday.

"We've now had a vote on Tuesday night that shows Gov. Bush won Florida; we've had a recount that shows Gov. Bush won Florida," Hughes said.

But she said the overseas ballot count could delay proceedings.

An unofficial survey of elections supervisors offices in Florida showed Bush with a 327 advantage. The official state figure was not expected to be announced until Tuesday. As it stands, with 53 counties reporting certified results, Bush has a lead of 1,784.

Hughes urged Bush's Democrat opponents to use caution.

"We would certainly hope that the Democrats would stop this talk of endless legalities, balloting and still more recounts," she said.

"We've had a vote, and we've now had a recount of that vote, and both confirm that Bush has won the state of Florida."

She said the Republicans have been working on a transition team and that started for both parties before the election.

She said the talks "are ongoing. At this point we are still watching the events in Florida."

Bush is handling the developments well and is in control, Bush said.

"He's in very good spirits. One of the things I've learned about Gov. Bush in course of six years working for Gov. Bush is that he is very steady.
