Trump urges end to Florida recount, Democrats seek extension

President Donald Trump on Monday urged Florida election officials to abandon recount efforts and declare his fellow Republicans the winners of disputed races there at last week’s midterm elections, while Democrats filed a lawsuit to challenge the state’s deadline on mail-in ballots.

As Florida officials scrambled to review more than eight million ballots by Thursday, Trump, without providing evidence, cast doubt on the recount process required by state law in close elections.

Trump called for an end to the recount even though state rules allow election officials to wait 10 days for absentee ballots submitted by registered voters living outside the United States, including active-duty military personnel.

Florida law gives local election officials until the Saturday after an election to submit their first round of unofficial election results.
