Offense - Defense......

Bill Nelson in Florida should have gone on the offense the other night and claim funny business in voting in Florida and he should have put Rick Scott on the defense.

Yesterday, however, Scott went on the offense in Florida.

He suggested there was “rampant fraud” and called for law enforcement to investigate two counties over their election practices as his lead in the state’s U.S. Senate race continued to shrink Thursday evening.

He repeatedly accused liberals of trying to “steal” the election from him in Broward and Palm Beach counties. He called out the Democratic supervisors of elections by name saying every Floridian should be concerned there may be rampant fraud happening in Palm Beach and Broward counties. He offered no specific evidence of fraud, saying only that the counties were the only two in the state where there were irregularities.

He put the Dems and Bill Nelson on the defense now and vowed he'd fight to keep his win. He appeared on Fox News to also make these same statements.

Too bad Nelson didn't draw first blood and put Scott on the defense. Now if the race is overturned and goes to Nelson - the fight will continue and this race might not be resolved for a long time.

1. No. Nelson did well to let the counting go forward without national attention

By the time this goes into court, judges will be like WTF, they’re just counting ballots as they are obligated to do. Just like Arizona and other states do.

It’s the repugs who are kicking themselves for not bringing in their thugs before now.

2. Sounds to me like Scott is upset he didn't lawyer up before the Dems

Nelson was ready for this and had Elias and an army of lawyers ready. Scott, apparently, did not, and Trump did not send his in because he wasn't on the ballot in Florida.

It looks like Scott has concluded he will lose unless he can stop the counting. I don't see how he can do that, but all this fuss, imo, is just Scott trying to figure out what possible reasons he can give a court to have it order they stop counting. If he went to court now, with no proof of any wrongdoing other than wild conspiracies, the courts would laugh at him and throw him out.
