Marco Rubio has major concerns about the Senate election results in Florida, specifically in Broward County, which hasn’t fully turned their results in yet.
And he’s voicing them now for all to see:
Long but IMPORTANT THREAT ON ELECTIONS IN #FLORIDA.#BayCounty was hit by a Cat 4 Hurricane just 4 weeks ago,yet managed to count votes & submit timely results.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 8, 2018
Yet over 41 hours after polls closed #Broward elections office is still counting votes? #Sayfie
#Broward supervisor:— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 8, 2018
- says she doesn’t know how many ballots are left to be counted; &
- Isn’t reporting hourly or regularly,but rather releasing thousands of additional votes,often in the overnight hours,that are chipping away at GOP leads
#Broward elections department has a history of violating the law:— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 8, 2018
A court found they improperly handled votes by mail:https://t.co/NOE6qdbWly
Court found they destroyed ballots in 2016 in violation of state & federal law:https://t.co/ywP8qE46J5 #Sayfie
Now democrat lawyers are descending on #Florida. They have been very clear they aren’t here to make sure every vote is counted.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 8, 2018
- They are here to change the results of election; &
- #Broward is where they plan to do it.#Sayfie
A U.S. Senate seat & a statewide cabinet officer are now potentially in the hands of an elections supervisor with a history of incompetence & of blatant violations of state & federal laws.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 8, 2018

#Broward election supervisors ongoing violation of #Florida law requiring timely reporting isn’t just annoying incompetence. It has opened the door for lawyers to come here & try to steal a seat in the U.S. Senate & Florida Cabinet— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 8, 2018
I’m so glad he’s calling attention to this. It doesn’t make sense that other counties can get this done but Broward County can’t. It’s been two days already!
I like how he doesn’t just throw out his election concerns willy nilly, but substantiates them with both arguments and articles to back them up. Any reasonable person can see he’s not just throwing bombs.
I do hope Rubio putting a focus on Broward County will engage state officials to ensure that Broward doesn’t ‘mishandle’ votes like they’ve done in the past. A major Senate seat hangs in the balance and Democrats will cheat to win – there’s no doubt about it.
