Finally! Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson just conceded to his Republican challenger Rick Scott in the midterm election for the Senate in Florida. After Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes’ incompetence and dirty tricks, it’s finally come down to this. Scott is the new freshman senator from Florida. He won that election fair and square… despite the Democrats.
Scott is leading Nelson by 10,000 votes. Even if more mailed-in ballots come in, Nelson could not beat that total, so he conceded. Nelson has served three terms in the US Senate. He did not lose this race gracefully and he tried every trick in the book to beat Scott. It is the first time in more than 100 years that Florida has had two Republican senators representing the state. Fox News has more on the election results:
