Scott goes Trump as DeSantis goes ‘statesman’ in Florida recount

The divergent approaches of the two Republicans gives a glimpse into the new political roles they’re likely to fill in January.

As their victory margins shrank, Florida Republicans Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis took starkly different approaches to the coming recounts now unfolding in their races.

Scott, the outgoing governor and U.S. Senate candidate, has issued a string of baseless accusations that incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson wants to “steal the election.” He urged state police to investigate the possibility of “rampant voter fraud,” for which he provided no evidence and for which no proof has been found by authorities, including a judge who said Monday that both sides should “ramp down the rhetoric.”
