The Key Counties
NPR's Eric Westervelt, Peter Kenyon and Philip Davis talk about the recount going on in three Florida counties. Westervelt is covering Palm Beach County, where today a circuit court judge announced that he did not have the authority to order a "revote" because of the confusing so-called "Butterfly" ballot. As the recount of votes in Palm Beach County has proceeded, it is actually George Bush who has picked up votes. Kenyon is covering Broward County, which is expected to complete its manual recount by today. And Davis is in Miami-Dade, which today has begun to recount its 654,000 presidential ballots.
