Desperate Democrats have finally conceded that Florida Gov. Rick Scott won his bid for U.S. Senator after a hand recount confirmed a 10,000 vote difference out of more than eight million cast. The machine recount placed the difference at 12,000 votes. Democrat challenger Bill Nelson conceded during a phone call with Scott and later proclaimed, “I was not victorious in this race, but I still wish to strongly reaffirm the cause for which we fought: A public office is a public trust.” Though long overdue, the official victory lays to rest Democrats’ attempt to steal the election through bogus last-minute ballots.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
(UPI) — Florida Gov. Rick Scott will be changing jobs — U.S. senator — as incumbent Bill Nelson conceded hours after a hand recount showed a 10,000-vote difference.
Scott, a Republican governor for eight years, announced the concession in a statement, saying, “I just spoke with Senator Bill Nelson, who graciously conceded, and I thanked him for his years of public service.”

Earlier, Florida released the final results for its midterm elections, including manual recounts for senator and agriculture commissioner.
The manual recount of the senator’s race showed Scott leading incumbent Nelson by 10,033 votes out of more than 8 million cast, compared with around 12,000 votes after the machine recount.
