Florida Gov. Rick Scott will be changing jobs - U.S. senator - as incumbent Bill Nelson conceded hours after a hand recount showed a 10,000-vote difference.
Scott, a Republican governor for eight years, announced the concession in a statement, saying, "I just spoke with Senator Bill Nelson, who graciously conceded, and I thanked him for his years of public service."
Earlier, Florida released the final results for its midterm elections, including manual recounts for senator and agriculture commissioner.
The manual recount of the senator's race showed Scott leading incumbent Nelson by 10,033 votes out of more than 8 million cast, compared with around 12,000 votes after the machine recount.
Democrat Nicole "Nikki" Fried led Republican Matt Caldwell by 6,753 votes after the manual recount in the tight race for agriculture commissioner, although Palm Beach County hadn't begun a manual recount of that race. Fried led by about 5,300 votes after the machine recount.
Results from the recounts are scheduled to be made official by the state's elections canvassing board Tuesday.
