As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by DailyMail:

Floridians went to bed Tuesday without knowing whether Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson had held on to his seat or lost to Republican Gov. Rick Scott.

Scott led by less than half a percentage point with nearly all votes counted: leading by about 34,435 votes out of more than 8 million cast.

The margin, if it sticks, would trigger a mandatory recount in the state.

The razor thin margin means every possible vote becomes critical, including overseas and military ballots, provisional ballots and vote by mail ballots that have defects such as a missing or non-matching signature.

The article goes on to state the following:

There was a belief Nelson conceded to his GOP rival, but the campaign put out a statement in the early morning hours clarifying that Nelson was still waiting for all the ballots to be counted.

Nelson is expected to address the media on Wednesday.
