TALLALHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Democrat Andrew Gillum has withdrawn his concession in the Florida gubernatorial race following a recount.
“I am replacing my words of concession with an uncompromised and unapologetic call that we count every single vote,” Gillum said at a press conference in Tallahassee on Saturday.
Unofficial election results showed Republican former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis ahead of Gillum by less than 0.5 percentage points. Under state law, such a margin requires a machine recount of ballots.
Gillum had conceded the race to DeSantis on Tuesday night.
