Too Close to Call
Shades of hanging chads, Florida Governor's race could go to a recount
Right now, the Governor’s race in Florida is neck in neck. Republican candidate Rick Scott has 50 percent of the vote and Democratic candidate Alex Sink has 47 percent of the vote. So far, 73 percent of the precincts have reported.
More than 500,000 votes are still being counted in Dade County and South Florida. Less than 100,000 votes separate the two right now.
If Alex Sink wins, she would be the first woman Governor of Florida. Rick Scott, a businessman, would be the first non-politician to be elected. If these two candidates come within a half a percent of each other, there will be a recount of the votes. And we all know Florida’s history with recounts!
Keep watching this race, it’s too close to call!
