'That was a misfire! Don’t worry!' MSNBC left red-faced after on-screen graphic declares Florida Democrat the winner of governor's race a day before polls open
The nation got an impossibly early peek at the outcome of the hotly-contested Florida governor's race on MSNBC – after the network mistakenly posted a graphic of the results before the polls even opened.
The network posted a graphic showing the two candidates, Democrat Andrew Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis, who are facing off in one of the nation's marquis contests, during its Monday night broadcast.
Deadline Hollywood, which posted a screen grab of the graphic, showed it had Gillum grabbing a narrow victory. It had precise vote totals with a 49.4 to 48.8 and a gap of fewer than 46,000 votes.
