SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I want to start in the state of Florida because it looks like the typical, predictable, Democratic tactics of whatever it takes to win might be going on as it relates to the election of Rick Scott as the new senator from Florida and of course Ron DeSantis the new governor of Florida. I first took note of this when I saw Marco Rubio's tweet from earlier today, "Broward elections supervisors ongoing violation of Florida law requiring timely reporting isn't just annoying incompetence, it has opened the door for lawyers to come here and try and steal a seat in the U.S. Senate and Florida cabinet."
Now the margin of victory of the Florida Senate race, that's Rick Scott's race, has gone from 53,000 votes on election night to 22,000 votes. And it all seems to be coming down to one county, and that would be, now shocking, Broward County. Home of the hanging, swinging, dimpled, pimpled, you know, chad controversy in 2000 with Bush and Gore. And the board of elections is refusing to now say how many ballots remain to be counted. There are laws that they've got to be upholding here. My sources are telling me that in fact there is now an ongoing investigation into what is happened down there and each day more votes are just appearing out of nowhere from Nelson and Gillum.
