DeSantis led Gillum by 0.52 percent as of Thursday morning, above the half-percent margin that triggers an automatic machine recount. DeSantis was elected governor on Tuesday, defeating Tallahasee Mayor Andrew Gillum in a close race. "We're going to fight", he said.
Provisional ballots are given to voters because their eligibility to vote is challenged for some reason - perhaps they have an address discrepancy, or they forgot their ID.
In the governor's race, DemocratAndrew Gillum's campaign said Thursday it's prepared for a possible recount.
Gillum's campaign said it has hired attorney Barry Richard, who represented President George W. Bush in the 2000 recount, and is monitoring the situation.
Legal wrangling began in earnest in Florida on Thursday as top political campaigns girded for the possibility of lengthy and expensive vote recounts, especially in a Senate race that remains too close to call.

In 2000, Broward and Palm Beach each played central roles in the Bush-Gore race.
Standing on the steps of the Governor's Mansion Thursday night, Scott accused Snipes and Palm Beach election supervisor Susan Bucher, both Democrats, of trying to steal the election.
"No, I am not", Snipes said.
In the lawsuit, Scott claims without evidence that Snipes is withholding records regarding how many people voted, how many ballots have been counted and how many more votes remain untallied in Broward County. They haven't controlled the state House or Senate since the mid-1990s. The Elections Canvassing Commission would then meet November 20 to certify the results.
Nikki Fried, a Democratic candidate running for agricultural commissioner, actually leapfrogged over Republican Matt Caldwell to take the lead - leading Caldwell's campaign to howl about "potential corruption".

The AP has not called a victor in the Senate race. Just 39,000 votes now separate the two men.
Gillum had pulled off an upset in the Democratic primary, winning the nomination after consistently polling in third for most of that race, but he was unable to carry that same momentum into the general election.
"There's bad things that have gone on in Broward County, really bad things", said Trump.
About 25,000 fewer voters cast a vote in that race than in other statewide races, even though it was listed first on the ballot. That may be an indicator of machine problems, Elias said. "And the supervisors - Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher - can not seem to say how many ballots still exist and where these ballots came from or where they have been". "That under-vote doesn't make sense".
That information has to be presented to the voter's county supervisor of elections office by 5 p.m. today.
Florida's U.S. Senate race is also tight, and a recount seems very likely in that contest as well. "The ones that are accepted will all be opened and we'll tabulate those tonight to add to the count".
