Florida has ordered a machine recount of votes for state governor and senator following Tuesday’s closely fought mid-term elections.
Florida Secretary of State, Ken Detzner said that as unofficial results in both races had fallen within a margin of 0.5%, a recount was required by law.
The two ballots are among the most important yet to be decided.
US President Donald Trump responded to the news by accusing Democrats of trying to “steal” the elections.
In the race for Florida’s Senate seat, unofficial results revealed a gap of just 0.15% between the votes for Democrat Bill Nelson and Republican Rick Scott.
