MELISSA FRANCIS (CO-HOST): Meantime, in the governor's race, the machine recount showing Republican candidate Ron DeSantis with a big enough lead over Democrat Andrew Gillum that a manual recount will not be required. And now all eyes are on the Democratic stronghold of Broward County. The county missed yesterday's 3 pm deadline -- hmm -- after reporting the machine recount results two minutes late. Now Scott's campaign is accusing the county's embattled elections supervisor Brenda Snipes of intentionally missing the deadline to invalidate the results, which showed Democrat Bill Nelson losing ground to Governor Scott.

JASON CHAFFETZ (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Do you think it's just a coincidence every time there's a mistake like this it's because it was going to go in the Republicans' direction, but they know it actually helps the Democrat?
