NAPLES, Fla. -- Florida Governor Rick Scott delivered a victory speech at his watch party in Naples Tuesday night, following a very narrow apparent victory over Bill Nelson for his Senate seat.

With a margin of victory well below 1%, the Associated Press has not yet called the race for Scott over incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson.

Scott won 90% of votes among those who view President Trump favorably, and 80% of votes among those who rank immigration as their top issue. However, he only won 20% of votes from voters who say gun policy is their top issue.
