Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and his supporters have demanded a recount in the Nov. 6 election for which he had earlier conceded to Republican opponent Ron DeSantis.

The Tallahassee mayor, who ran as a Democrat, trails DeSantis by 33,684 votes.

“The final count is not done. Let’s be clear about that,” Gillum said Sunday during services at the Bethel AME Church in Tallahassee.

Gillum is the first African-American to capture a major Florida party nomination and received the most votes ever for a Democratic gubernatorial candidate.
