The Gillum statement said that since the concession speech "it has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported".
"Our campaign, along with our attorney Barry Richard, is monitoring the situation closely and is ready for any outcome, including a state-mandated recount", Cervone added.
If the recounted returns show the race to be outside of a 0.25 percent margin, the Secretary of State will likely certify the results as official.
The canvassing boards, which typically consist of the supervisor of elections, a county judge and a county commission member, review the ballots to see if the signature matches the one on file when the voter first registered, and to determine if the voter didn't already vote. Rick Scott in his re-election bid by 0.22 percentage points, or 17,344 votes out of more than 8.1 million counted so far.
Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, claimed victory Tuesday against Democratic incumbent Sen. A hand recount, a more thorough process than a machine recount, would happen if the race was within 0.25 points.
In the state's race for the next agriculture commissioner, Democrat Nikki Fried how now taken the lead over Republican Matt Caldwell.
"We are asking that every single vote be counted", Gillum said.
Jeff Sessions resigns as attorney general at Trump's request

County election officials have until noon on November 10 to report unofficial results to the state.
The perpetually mismanaged elections office in Broward County, led by embattled Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes, is in the hot seat once again: Snipes, who was found to have violated federal law in 2016 by deleting ballots that were the subject of a lawsuit, now says she has no clue how many ballots might be left to count in Broward County. Both of them will end up leaving egg on Gillum's face in the end, and making not one whit of meaningful difference in the eventual ballot count.
But that analysis relied on models that estimated voter turnout, and not on outstanding ballot data from local county election offices, the Miami Herald reports. Between provisional and other late ballots, it might be this weekend before results are in. "They have to be transparent and tell us what they are counting and how many they are counting", he said.
Update: Marco Rubio's steamed about how Broward and Palm Beach counties are handling their responsibilities.
Broward has been the scene of drama since the election, with the Nelson campaign holding off on conceding Tuesday night due to votes from seven precincts that had to be driven to elections centers and manually entered from thumb drives.
Marc Elias, a Washington lawyer on Nelson's team, said the candidate was demanding a recount.
It's unknown how many provisional ballots have been cast statewide in Florida this year. But Elias said that there were significant disparities even between congressional districts in the county meant the issue could be with voting machines.
Two days after the United States mid-term elections, Florida's senate race remains unresolved, along with several others across the country. And Nelson, who has been in a recount since Wednesday, has already begun marshalling voters with provisional ballots, hoping to "cure", or correct, discrepancies that reinstate their vote and help chip away the narrow gap between him and Scott. Folks who lived through the 2000 election are going into dissociative fugue states.
