Scott for Florida Legal Update
Today, a judge ordered the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections to comply with the Scott for Florida team’s request to allow election observers -of both parties- access to the same room where the ongoing recount process is taking place, as required by Florida law. The SOE will now have to comply with the law and allow campaign observers inside the recount room.
“While it is frustrating that this Supervisor of Elections chose not to follow the law until ordered to do so by a court, we are glad that our election observers now have the access they need to witness the ongoing recount. We will continue to fight to defend Florida law and uphold the will of the voters.” –Chris Hartline, Spokesman for Scott for Florida
