Nearly one week after the polls closed in the state of Florida, the nation watches as results of state’s senatorial, gubernatorial, and agricultural commissioner races remain uncertain.

On Friday around 5 p.m., Knight News sent a Public records request to the office of Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes, for:


“The six (6) most recent emails the Supervisor has received from (i) the Scott Campaign (including any of its representatives or affiliates), and (ii) the Nelson Campaign (including any of its representatives or affiliates).

The six (6) most recent emails the Supervisor has sent from (i) the Scott Campaign (including any of its representatives or affiliates), and (ii) the Nelson Campaign (including any of its representatives or affiliates).”

Knight News asked Snipes’ office that these record be produced within 24 hours given the newsworthiness of this story.

As of Saturday, at 5 p.m., Snipes’ office has not fulfilled Knight News’ public record request. 

Currently, Republicans Rick Scott and Ron Desantis are winning the senatorial and gubernatorial races by 12,562 and 33,684 votes respectively, according to the New York Times. Democrat Nikki Fried is leading her race for agricultural commissioner by 2,915 votes, according to CBS Miami.

A statewide recount is set to begin tomorrow and must be completed by Thursday Nov. 15 at 3 p.m..

Earlier this week, a judge said that Snipes violated florida’s public record laws by “not fulfilling a request for that ( an accounting of total ballots cast and a breakdown of votes by category) information by Scott’s campaign,” according to The Miami Herald.
