Governor Rick Scott claims election fraud, orders law enforcement investigation

Florida Republican Governor Rick Scott, who is involved in a tight contest with incumbent Democratic US Senator Bill Nelson for one of the state's US Senate seat, made claims on Thursday that officials in two Florida counties are tampering with election results.

Scott, using his authority as governor, got involved in his own race by ordering law enforcement officials to investigate board of election actions in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.

Scott's US Senate campaign, along with the Republican Senate campaign arm, filed a lawsuit claiming that election officials in Broward County are refusing to release public records.

“Every Floridian should be concerned there may be rampant fraud happening in both Broward and Palm Beach counties,” the governor said.

Saudi Arabia, OPECs Anchor, Ponders a Future Without the Cartel

Saudi Arabia’s top government-funded think tank is studying the possible effects on oil markets of a breakup of OPEC, a remarkable research effort for a country that has dominated the oil cartel for nearly 60 years.
The effort coincides with new pressures on the Saudi government, including from the U.S., where President Trump has accused the cartel of pushing up oil prices, and from investors who distanced themselves from the kingdom after the brutal killing of a U.S.-based Saudi journalist.

While the think tank’s president, Adam Sieminski, said the study hadn’t been triggered by Mr. Trump’s statements, a senior adviser familiar with the project said it provided an opportunity to take into account the criticism from Washington. Depending on the findings, the study could offer a defense of the cartel and the Saudi role in it.

Looks like Florida is likely to have a 2nd Republican Senator and another Republican Gov...

There are still votes left in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, which are very Democratic. But Gillum and Nelson are both down by about 1 percent, with more than 90 percent of the vote in. Gillum was consistently ahead of DeSantis in polls, while Nelson-Scott was expected to be very close. But the results right now suggest that Republicans may win both of those races.
