Gillum withdraws Florida governor concession

Democratic candidate for Florida governor Andrew Gillum retracted his concession to Republican Party's Ron DeSantis amid controversy surrounding the ballot count. "I am replacing my earlier concession with an unapologetic and uncompromised call to count every vote," Gillum wrote on Twitter.

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner decided earlier to recount the votes in both the governor and Senate races. US President Donald Trump slammed the decision, claiming the elections could be stolen in the recount and calling the proceedings an "embarrassment to our country and to democracy."
