Gov. Rick Scott snatched the seat for the GOP from Sen. Bill Nelson, who was first elected in 2000. Less than a single percentage point separated the two with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

DeSantis versus Gillum (Fl governor)In a second closely-watched gubernatorial race, Ron DeStantis won the governor's office in a close finish, defeating Andrew Gillum in a narrow 49-48 win. 

Fox News projected DeSantis, a former congressman, would win with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

Gillum conceded the race at the same time Fox News was projecting his narrow loss.

Donald Trump narrowly won Florida's electoral votes in 2016 48-47 percent over Hillary Clinton, a difference of approximately 112,000 votes.
