As of Friday afternoon, Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis led Democrat Andrew Gillum by a little more than 36,000 votes, while Democrat Nikki Fried was up slightly more than 3,000 votes in her battle with Republican Matt Caldwell to become state agriculture commissioner.
He returned to Twitter later with his thoughts on the Florida Senate race:"Mayor Gillum conceded on Election Day and now Broward County has put him "back into play".
Meanwhile, Democratic incumbent Sen.
President Donald Trump accused Democrats of fraudulently trying to snatch a Senate seat in Florida's tight race, without citing any evidence to support his claim, and later questioned whether a new election should be held in Arizona's too-close-to-call Senate race. Nelson's lawyer called that race a "jump ball" - though Scott's campaign urged Nelson to concede.
Scott "easily won, but every hour it seems to be going down", he said of Scott's lead which on Friday stood at 14,999 votes out of 8.2 million cast, a margin of just 0.18 percent. "Every Floridian should be concerned that there may be rampant fraud happening in Palm Beach and Broward counties".
The National Republican Senatorial Committee also joined Scott on Thursday to file suit against both Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes and Palm Beach Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher.
Mr Scott filed lawsuits on Thursday against election supervisors in two counties, accusing them of failing to follow election law.
DeSantis and Scott were initially believed to be the winners of their respective races.

"I am asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate this election immediately", Scott tweeted. Keys Republicans have a history of prioritizing conservationist policies, and some blame Scott for the declining health of Florida Bay's backcountry and the red-tide algae bloom that plagued the southwest coast this summer.
Moments later, as the president was en route to Paris for a meeting with world leaders, he tweeted, "You mean they are just now finding votes in Florida and Georgia - but the Election was on Tuesday?" State law requires a manual recount of any election with an initial margin under 0.25 percent.
Broward County officials were simply taking deliberative steps to count all ballots, including absentee and provisional ones, he said. Florida a state with a tradition of recounts, is in for another political storm.
DeSantis declined to discuss prospects for a recount, telling reporters he was "very proud to be elected".
Florida Governor Rick Scott is excoriating Palm Beach County for refusing to comply with a judge's order about their ballot counting process Friday.
She said Thursday that mail-in and provisional ballots were being counted as quickly as possible but that her office had been slowed by their volume. Two days after voting has concluded, the Supervisor Of Elections is unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed, and how many ballots remain to be canvassed.
Election Day was on Tuesday, but for races in a number of states, it's not over yet.
"The results of the 2018 Senate election are unknown and I think that you and the elections officials should treat it as such", Elias told reporters on a conference call.
