Democrat Senator Chris Murphy urged liberal activists across the country to “adjust their schedules” and “get down to Florida” if Republicans “stop all ballots from being counted.”
Murphy posted his comments on social media after state officials weighed a manual recount after Republican Rick Scott held a slight lead over Democrat Bill Nelson.
“Republicans will try to use the courts to shut down a full recount. Just get ready for this – adjust your schedules bc we may all have to get down to Florida if they try to to use the courts to stop all ballots from being counted,” tweeted the left-wing lawmaker.

The move echoes similar comments from Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, who demanded that “every vote” be counted and urged supporters to contact their local County Supervisors.
BLUE STATE BLUES: Liberal Governors to SUE TRUMP ADMIN Over GOP Tax Cuts
New York’s Andrew Cuomo announced his plans Friday to form a coalition of ‘Blue State’ Governors and sue the federal government over the recently passed GOP tax legislation; saying the bill unfairly punishes east coast residents with drastically higher property taxes.
Just three states -New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut- have signed onto Cuomo’s initiative, but the group hopes to expand to California, Illinois, and other left-leaning local governments as the Republican tax cuts take effect in the coming months.
According to Fox News, the coalition blasted the legislation’s State and Local Tax Deduction, also known as SALT provision, which eliminates individual’s abilities to deduct state and local taxes from their federal filings; making people in high-tax states likely to pay more on their annual tax bill.
“The elimination of full state and local deductibility is a blatantly partisan and unlawful attack on New York that uses our hardworking families and tax dollars as a piggy bank to pay for tax cuts for corporations and other states,” Cuomo said in a statement. “This coalition will take the federal government to court to protect our residents from this assault.”
“Capping the State and Local Tax deduction had nothing to do with sound policy,” added New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. “It is a clear and politically motivated punishment of blue states — like New Jersey and our neighbors —who already pay far more to the federal government than we receive.”
Cuomo’s lawsuit is the latest instance of Democratic leaders struggling to stop the President’s tax overhaul. Earlier this month, California announced its intention to “seize” half the tax cut revenue of all corporations earning over $1 million.
COLLUSION COLLAPSE: Liberal Senator ADMITS Americans ‘Not Focused’ on Russia Probe
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy shocked his left-wing colleagues this week when he publicly admitted that most voters are “not focused” on special counsel Robert Mueller’s year-long investigation into Russian collusion.
Murphy was commenting in a recent study Wednesday that showed 32% of all voters and a whopping 40% of independent voters “either had no opinion of the special counsel or had never heard of him.”
“Verifies what I find in Connecticut – while political class follows every Mueller twist and turn, tons of swing voters are focused on the same things they always are – health care, wages, education, safety,” tweeted Murphy.

The Senator’s admission flies in the face of the mainstream media and liberal legislators breathless assertions for over one year that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia; raising serious questions over the much-hyped “Blue Wave” predicted for November.
