Democrats Ask Court for Recounts
Nov. 16, 2000
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ Al Gore asked a Florida judge Thursday to approve continued manual recounts of ballots in Florida's disputed presidential vote.
Gore, who trails George W. Bush by 300 votes in decisive Florida, asked the judge to reverse a Republican state official's decision to reject vote counts still going on in some counties.
The Democrats want final vote certification in Florida delayed until all those totals are in.
