After a mob of Republicans interrupt the proceedings election officials in Miami-Dade County, Florida vote to suspend manual recount of presidential ballots claiming they would not have enough time to finish the count before the November 26 deadline. They decide to recount only ballots that do not indicate a clear presidential choice, costing Democratic candidate Al Gore a 157-vote gain from the manual recount.
