Florida machine recount gives Ron DeSantis win in governor’s race over Andrew Gillum https://t.co/aalZCL8yr9

Which leaves one question:
The #FloridaRecount shows the same close spread, .41% in the #FLGov Race with @FloridaGOP @RonDeSantisFL ahead still of @FlaDems @AndrewGillum. Close, but not enough to trigger manual recount. Will Gillum concede? #fnr

The answer: Apparently not. And even after gaining just ONE vote in the recount:

Gillum literally picked up ONE (yes, you read that right) vote in the re-count.
He’s still refusing to concede…https://t.co/HgUgfn0E1N

Gillum’s in this for the long run apparently:
“A vote denied is justice denied — the State of Florida must count every legally cast vote,” Andrew Gillum said. “Voters need to know that their decision to participate in this election … matters. It is not over until every legally cast vote is counted.https://t.co/hejxS3lGMG

So they’re tellin’ him there’s a chance!?
Gillum won’t concede because Democrats are sore losers. Taking his queue from Hillary. https://t.co/Wj9IeHMINl

Gillum is making a mockery of this. Is a worse sore loser than Hillary.
