BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Looking back, you see the mess in Georgia. They're not even -- they're trying to delegitimize the whole outcome, even though it's 50,000 votes separating them. And also, you see the mess in Palm (sic) County, and see the mess in Broward -- Palm Beach County. 

RICK SCOTT (FLORIDA SENATOR-ELECT): Palm Beach, yeah.

KILMEADE: I'm just wondering, what responsibility do you feel you had over the last 8 years? Could have you done things to make sure this didn't happen again?
