Democrat Andrew Gillum Re-Concedes Florida Election…

Democrat Andrew Gillum conceded defeat to Republican Ron DeSantis in the Florida Governors race on election night; then the national democrats got hold of him, and Gillum withdrew his concession.  Today, following a recount, he re-conceded the race.

TAMPA, Fla. (Reuters) – Democrat Andrew Gillum … conceded on Saturday, after a recount showed he had no way of catching his Republican rival Ron DeSantis, an ally of President Donald Trump.

Gillum, the 39-year-old liberal mayor of Tallahassee, had initially conceded the race on the night of the Nov. 6 election to DeSantis, a conservative former congressman. But Gillum later withdrew that concession when the results showed the two were close enough to trigger an automatic recount.

“This has been the journey of our lives. We’ve been so honored by the support that we’ve received,” Gillum said in a video statement. “Stay tuned, there will be more to come. This fight for Florida continues.”

DeSantis, 40, said on Saturday on Twitter, “This was a hard-fought campaign. Now it’s time to bring Florida together.”  (read more)

    The challenging of the Senate and Gubernatorial races was not about THOSE races! It was about the Agriculture Department Head race … as the Dem who ran is an Avid, and some say rabid, anti-gun hardliner! The AG’s dept is in charge of permits and gun ownership in the entire state. THAT is the real race the Dems are trying desperately to win – even though they lost it on election day! Had the Dems won the Governor’s and Senator’s races, one or both, they would have been elated, and gladly taken those seats – but it would only have been frosting on the cake of the real race they are desperate to win. Have you noticed you don’t hear a solitary thing about THAT race on the MSM? (“Don’t draw any attention to that race – keep your talking head mouths shut about it” – MSM Rulers)

    This was extremely close and in 2 – 4 years, when 1.5 million convicted felons get to vote in Florida, Florida will be blue. Without Florida and Texas (which is already blue in its major cities – search for Texas sanctuary cities if you don’t believe it) republicans can say goodbye to the presidency after Trump’s potential second term. Better gear up for “free” healthcare, gun control, higher taxes and open borders.

    One of the things we keep hearing allot, is lets take these issues to the American people. We have FoxNews. They have CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, etc. Backed and controlled by our own CIA, FBI and DOJ and drug money.

    It’s time to find some rich Republicans and create 30 new stations, broadcasting the conservative point of view 24 X 7. To the point, that the American citizen can not go to the john with hearing and seeing the conservative point of view.

    Then we should go after the money feeding the, socialist broadcasting stations.

          Fox USED to be conservative. The Murdoch boys are flaming liberals and are steering Fox that way. Shepherd Smith has really let his true colors come forth in the last year, Neil Cavuto sticks his wet finger in the air before he makes his prognostications, Marie Harf is a typical new hire (she could have gone to the View but chose Fox instead), Martha McCallum is the blonde version of Cavuto, and Chris Wallace is becoming less subtle in his liberalism. Fox Business is suffering a similar problem. Lou Dobbs is locked in at 7 but they moved Charles Payne to 2. Thank goodness for Fox & Friends although Steve and Brian have been there since Fox began so it won’t be long before they retire. Pete Hegseth is likely way too conservative so he may get the axe, showing how Fox execs really feel about vets.

      “We have FoxNews”

      I beg to differ. Since the departure of Roger Ailes, we have OAN and a few people at Fox News/FBN. Most of the time during the day, FNC drones on in an incessant blabbering about what the Main Sewer Media is spewing.

      With the remaining good people (mostly evenings and weekends), about half the time they are either repetitious or have on some leftist loonie tune interrupting the republican /conservative guest by repeating the talking points from Media Matters and wasting precious air time.

      The only exception that comes immediately to mind is Mark Levin’s show on Sunday evening.

        Levin’s great but he was such a lunatic for Ted Cruz. He’s willing to change the actual intent of the Constitution, which is to keep the executive branch and military out of the hands of someone with dual loyalties to a foreign power, by accepting a foreign born guy with only one citizen parent as president. If we followed the Constitution it would have protected us against Obama, whose phony birth certificate was only produced after years into his illlegal presidency.

    Here’s the deal. The consent decree by the DOJ Civil Rights Div. barred the GOPe from contesting voter fraud for decades. During this time, the dims perfected voter fraud because they knew the pubs could not challenge. They are so accustomed to voter fraud, they have not given it up. I doubt that they will ever give up something they have perfected. Just think about how many elections they have stolen.

    If we are to survive as a Republic w/o a civil war, the election process MUST be changed so that election fraud is eliminated. If the ballot box is ineffective due to fraud, that leaves the ammo box as the only alternative.

    3000 Votes ‘Disappear’ From Florida Recount Tally

    None of the discrepancies would be enough to affect the outcome of the three statewide and three local elections that are still waiting for a winner to be called. But they come as at least three Florida counties — two of them Democratic strongholds whose results could be decisive — have reported problems counting their shares of the more than 8.1 million ballots cast across the state.
    In one of the most serious cases, Palm Beach County found “dozens of precincts missing a significant number” of votes during the machine recount, according to the supervisor of elections, Susan Bucher, causing the county to conclude that entire boxes of ballots may not have been counted.

    Ms. Bucher blamed an overheated and outdated ballot-scanning machine. But the manufacturer of the high-speed scanner used in Palm Beach said its technicians had witnessed Palm Beach County elections workers, apparently worried that one of the machines was running too fast, jam a paper clip into the scanner’s “enter” button in an effort to slow it down. That, in turn, caused a short circuit that cut off the power, a company spokeswoman said.

    The difference in Broward County was 0.29 percent — higher than the margin between the candidates in both the Senate and agriculture commissioner’s races.

    “This is a big deal,” said E. John Sebes, founder of Open Source Election Technology, a nonprofit group in San Francisco that promotes accuracy and security in the vote-counting process. “If you have an election margin of 0.21 percent and a variance of 0.12 percent, the variance of your machine count is half the margin you are trying to correct. That’s kooky.”

    It wasn’t only missing votes that raised questions about Florida’s election results. The vote count in heavily Democratic Broward County increased by about 80,000 in the four days after the election, possibly because of mail-in, provisional, overseas and military ballots that come in late and were legally counted after Election Day.

    But no other counties showed were identified publicly with such a high number of additional ballots registered after the election, and Broward County’s election supervisor, Brenda C. Snipes, offered few explanations.

    My plan of absolute corruption, extremely high taxation, business killing regulations, illegal alien and criminal empowerment, along with a radical communist agenda, will have to wait

    It is now clear there aren’t enough stupid people in Florida, so we’ll need to put together a better plan going forward to ensure our victory the next time

      To my mind, greyhound racing has zero do to with pitbull bans or homesteaders. I’m sorry all those people lost their jobs at the track, but when your income depends on an enterprise known for treating dogs inhumanely, you might want to reconsider your career choice. As for the dogs’ fate, my guess is organizations around the country will step up to find homes for the soon-to-be-retired greyhounds.

      I’m not for banning pitbulls, but I wouldn’t mind seeing some new laws put in place. If you train your dog to be vicious (pitbull or any other), and that dog kills or maims an innocent person, the owner should be charged just as if he had committed the violence himself. So if the “trained to be vicious” dog kills someone, it’s owner is charged with murder. Not manslaughter, or some kind of negligence or whatever… murder.
