The Secretary of State for Florida orders recounts in the US senate and governor races, an unprecedented review of two major races in the state that took five weeks to decide the 2000 presidential election.

The unofficial results show that the Republican former representative Ron DeSantis led the Democratic Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum by less than 0.5 percentage points, requiring mechanistic recounts of the votes.

In the Senate race, the head of Republican head of government Rick Scott on the incumbent Democratic Bill Nelson is less than 0.25 percentage points, which requires a manual recount of voting from table machines that could not determine which candidate was given the voice
