FL-13 Update

The recount goes on for one more day, and so far Democrat Jennings has gained 6 votes in Manatee County, one of five (or is it 4) counties that touch the 13th District.

According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, which has been the source on this issue, Republican Buchanan still holds the lead:

Jennings, a Democrat, earned 22 votes and Republican Vern Buchanan 16 when the
county's canvassing board finished counting disputed ballots just after 2 p.m. Including provisional ballots, Buchanan led Jennings 50,088 to 44,404 in Manatee voting.

Unfortunately, it's beginning to sound like 2000 again:
Some interesting ballots popped up during the day, including several that were
ripped, taped, bent and stained by mustard and coffee.

We'll keep watching it for you...
