As the counting of ballots resumed Friday afternoon, Republican U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetzcalled Snipe "either incompetent or corrupt" and accused her of "spinning ballots out of nothing" in the Senate seat between Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson.
Current Florida Gov. Rick Scott, locked in a tight Senate race, said in a news conference Thursday night that "the people of Florida deserve fairness and transparency and the supervisors are failing to give it to us".
6 November in the United States underwent a mid-term election, which was elected 35 of the 100 senators, all 435 members of the house of representatives and 36 state governors and three governors of territories.
The state is infamous for its role in the 2000 presidential election, which was won by Republican George W. Bush after a five-week recount drama that awarded him Florida's electoral votes by a 537-ballot margin over Democrat Al Gore.

Neither Scott nor any other Republicans have pointed to specific malfeasance in this election, let alone evidence of fraud, beyond the slow vote count. At 1 a.m. today, there were 695,700 ballots cast on Election Day.
