MSNBC, the left-wing cable news network, mistakenly displayed the results of the Florida governor race, declaring Democrat Andrew Gillum the winner, before polls even opened.
Todays Florida governor race
The Florida governor race is tight, and, as of now, Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum has the edge over Trump-endorsed Ron DeSantis. Gillum, however, is dogged by multiple incidents of corruption.

But as Florida voters go to the polls today, MSNBC has apparently informed them that the race is over. The Washington Times reports:
MSNBC, a day before the elections on Monday evening, before polls even opened for on-site voting put up a graphic on screen, on air, that showed the vote counts of the Florida governors race with Democrat Andrew Gillum leading Republican Ron DeSantis with a 49.4 percent to 48.8 percent lead. Oh, and thats with nearly all the district numbers counted.
