Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R), who ran for Senate against incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson (D), filed suit Thursday night against Broward and Palm Beach counties, accusing "unethical liberals" of trying to steal the election. On Tuesday night, the race was too close to call, with Scott in the lead. The race has tightened as more votes have been counted, and Scott is now requesting the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigate the official counts. Scott claims that Broward County and Palm Beach County supervisors are engaging in "rampant fraud," and he is suing as a Senate candidate, not the governor. The Tampa Bay Times reports that as of Thursday night, he has 15,092 more votes than Nelson.
