Vote counting continues in US elections

Votes are still being counted in more than a dozen too close elections in the US two days after voting has ended, which has cast doubt on the ultimate political form of Congress.

There are non-ignored senate matches in Arizona and Florida, where Republican candidates have close clues, and in California, where the incumbent Senator Dianne Feinstein has a significant lead in a party match against another Democrat, even if the ballots are still being counted.

Republican congressman Martha McSally is at the forefront of the Arizona Senate election on Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, another congressman, with 17,000 votes. In the Florida Senate race, Governor Rick Scott pulled 22,000 votes before the incumbent Democrat, Senator Bill Nelson, who asked for a recount.

There are 12 turbulent races for seats held by the Republicans in the House of Representatives, leaving open the possibility that the Democrats can claim some of them when the counting of the votes has been completed and the net profit of 30 seats they have already earned when adding House Control. for the first time in eight years, when the new Congress takes office at the beginning of January.

In addition, the outcome of a close game for the governorship of the state of Georgia remains in doubt, even when Republican state secretary Brian Kemp said victory. Democrat Stacey Abrams formed a litigation practice for possible legal challenges that the contest could send to a runoff election.

Abrams, looking to become the first African-American woman to become governor of the US, claims that thousands of provisionally untold provisional, mailed and absent votes could defeat Kemps 63,000 votes ahead and increase his share of voting below 50 percent, for which the drain mood is required. As of Thursday, Kemp had collected 50.3 percent of the votes for Abrams to 48.7 percent, while the rest went to a less important party candidate.

Kemp announced his resignation as Secretary of State of Georgia, where he supervised the elections, including that of his governor, so that he could concentrate on the transition to his new position as leader of the southern state.

Abrams and her supporters have argued that Kemp, in his role in holding elections in the state, helped to suppress voting by minorities in the state.
