It really doesn’t matter if Andrew Gillum concedes or not. Next Tuesday, the results will be officially certified, with DeSantis winning by about 60,000 votes. But, even so, Gillum refuses to concede.
Thirty years from now, he can relate to his 67 cats how he may have lost the election, he never conceded. In the Senate race, Rick Scott actually added over 800 additional votes. The counties will now have 3 days to hand count 8.3 million ballots. There is little chance of any major changes there either and Scott should be the newest member of the Senate.
But, of course, that race will be made official on Tuesday also, when the final counts must be certified by the counties.
The Sun Sentinel reported:
Nine days after Florida’s Election Day, the deadline for machine recounts of three statewide races came and went Thursday, but Andrew Gillum refused to concede and urged vote counting to continue even as his margin behind Ron DeSantis was slimmed by just one vote.
“A vote denied is justice denied — the State of Florida must count every legally cast vote,” Gillum said in a statement as the machine recount was completed in all but a few counties. “As today’s unofficial reports and recent court proceedings make clear, there are tens of thousands of votes that have yet to be counted. We plan to do all we can to ensure that every voice is heard in this process.’’
There aren’t even 60,000 more votes to count. Even if every remaining vote is counted and every single vote is a Gillum vote, he still loses. At this time, the valiant effort by Democrats to steal both elections have failed.
