Democrat Nikki Fried declares victory in Florida Agriculture Commissioner race

TALLAHASSEE - At the end of election day on Tuesday, it appeared that Democrat Nikki Fried had lost to Republican Matt Caldwell for the Florida Cabinet post of agriculture commissioner.

Saturday, after late vote tallies in Broward and other counties showed she was actually ahead by 5,326 votes, Fried claimed victory and started working on a transition.

It may be premature. The state division of elections ordered automatic machine recounts for three statewide races Saturday afternoon, including Friedís. And the latest vote tallies donít include and military and overseas votes. The military vote historically has trended Republican.

The agriculture commissioner race is almost certain to go to a manual recount, which has to be done for races in which candidatesí votes end within .25 percent or less of each other. The margin in the Fried-Calwell race: .06 percent.
