Scott for Florida Raises More Than $1.4 Million for Recount Efforts
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Senator-elect Rick Scott announced that the Scott for Florida team has raised more than $1.4 million for recount efforts since fundraising officially began again last Thursday. While Senator-elect Scott won a close but decisive victory with a margin of 12,562 votes, – an amount that has never before been overcome through a recount – Bill Nelson, his D.C. lawyer and liberal interest groups continue to try to thwart the will of the voters through frivolous lawsuits aimed at overturning state laws. Senator-elect Scott will continue to aggressively fight to defend the will of Florida voters, and Florida Finance Chairwoman Darlene Jordan and National Finance Chairman Thomas Hicks will continue to oversee fundraising efforts in support of this mission.
Senator-elect Scott said, “I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has volunteered time, donated resources and worked so hard to support our campaign over the past seven months, and now in the recount process. We won a hard-fought victory last week and there is no doubt we will protect this win. I am honored to have been chosen by Florida voters to represent our state in D.C., and I look forward to reforming Washington so it finally works for our families – not for career politicians.”
