Without citing any evidence of wrongdoing, Scott also asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate elections offices in the Democratic strongholds of Palm Beach and Broward counties, questioning whether they have been taking too long in some sort of effort to inflate the Democratic vote.
Florida is not alone.
The Georgia gubernatorial election between Republican Brian Kemp and 'Democrat Stacey Abrams is still undecided as state elections officials continue to find and count ballots.
Elias bases his claims largely in part to what is happening in Broward County where they are still counting ballots and where there was a large undervote in the Senate race.
"Some believe that this is simply rank incompetence", Scott said.
"I am asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate this election immediately", Scott tweeted.
Scott, the state's governor, filed a lawsuit Thursday accusing Democrats in Broward and Palm Beach counties of "rampant fraud" and of trying to steal the election - allegations for which he offered no proof.
Broward was at the heart of Florida's bitter legal brawls in 2000.

Fox News hosts Hannity, Pirro join Trump onstage at campaign rally
In 2010, he was ordered not to broadcast his program as part of a Tea Party rally originating from Cincinnati. Fox News said Tuesday that Hannity's appearance was "an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed".
For this and other reasons, lawyers for Nelson and Gillum chose to call on the state of Florida to honor its statutory obligation to perform a recount.
Scott's lawsuits alleged a lack of transparency over the counting process and asked that further details be made public. "The Broward County Clerk, Brenda Snipes, was required by law after the polls closed on Tuesday night to within 30 minutes to share how many early votes were counted or cast in that county", McDaniel said. In the governor's race, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, a Democrat, trailed former Republican congressman Ron DeSantis by more than 36,000 votes, or 0.45 percent. A recount is mandatory if the winning candidate's margin is less than 0.5 percentage points.
Should that count show DeSantis with a margin of less than 0.5 percentage points, triggering a recount, AP will retract its call for DeSantis.
David Lublin, a professor of government at American University, dismissed suggestions that corruption was to blame, and said the latest statements by Trump and Scott "are highly irresponsible". Those calls became premature as there were many ballots still yet to be counted.
Meanwhile, Sean Hannity, the Fox News host and informal Trump adviser, said in an interview with Scott on his program on Thursday evening that "somebody needs to go to jail" as a result of the delayed vote counts in Broward County because Scott "won this race hands down".
And yet unusual voting discrepancies were being reported in Broward.
Trump inserted himself into both races, casting doubt on the ongoing vote tallies in those states as well as in Georgia, where thousands of absentee, provisional and other uncounted ballots could shift the outcomes.
"But other counties have been able to do it", Weinsier said.
Experts including lawyer Lawrence Norden have turned to a possible flaw with the ballot's design.
Nelson's suit seeks to re-examine absentee and provisional ballots when signatures on the ballots don't match voter registration records.
