I don't remember seeing it mentioned either, but that Georgia special election that was the most expensive House seat in history, the one Ossoff lost by a low margin that was reliably red -
Democrat Lucy McBath took that from Karen Handel this time.
Have to still work at it hard, but times are changing.

Notice the genius on the bottom left....does he not know what the internet is? To save you about 5 seconds of google, there are over 13 million registered voters in florida. This level of stupid hurts my brain.

He may be referring to Miami-Dade county, which has a population of 2.75 million. However, the county elections department says 1.434 million registered, so I don't know where he got his number from. And yeah, it took me about 5 seconds to find the official number.

I heard that in Broward County, if you voted a straight Democratic ticket, your votes were counted 3 times.

(Pass it on so we can get some heads exploding...)

His sign says "Registered Votes" not "voters." Does him not know spelling more better? Or is he referring to the number of votes counted compared to the number of ballots cast.

As confusion continues over the outcome of multiple Florida elections, a hand recount has been ordered in that state's narrow Senate race between Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Meanwhile, in the gubernatorial contest, Republican Ron DeSantis appears headed to victory over Democrat Andrew Gillum after a machine recount did not significantly narrow the margin in that race.

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner declared that the Senate race was within a 0.25 percent margin after a machine recount was conducted across the state, which triggers a hand recount of some ballots to be completed by noon on Sunday. Nelson continues to trail Scott by 0.15 percent.

An unrealistic deadline for recounts that works against heavily-populated areas (aka liberal areas) and somehow these heavily populated areas are also never given enough money to procure the equipment needed to meet these unrealistic recount deadlines. Gee, that couldn't be the work of the GOP, could it?

Also, you don't see anyone screaming about where the election officials "found" the additional GOP votes:

Gov. Rick Scott, the Republican who ran for Democrat Bill Nelson's seat in the U.S. Senate, claimed victory a second time after the statewide recount showed his edge grew by 865 votes, to a total of 13,427 votes.
