Rewire.News: Recounts Triggered for Florida Gubernatorial and Senate Races

Rewire.News’s piece covering the recounts included NewFM’s efforts to ensure a fair process.

NewFM was mentioned in Rewire.News‘ Nov. 8th coverage of the automatic recounts in the gubernatorial, U.S. Senate, and commissioner of agriculture races.

Broward County was the ground zero of a dramatic and heart-wrenching recount in the 2000 presidential election between then former Governor of Texas George W. Bush and former Vice President Al Gore. As was the case then, many organizations—such as the League of Women Voters and the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, and newer ones like New Florida Majority—are providing resources to help oversee the process and make sure it is fair.
