Good Evening.
The United States Supreme Court released its ruling at just before ten tonight-
The Court has ruled that the Florida Supreme Court was wrong when it ordered a manual recount of thousands of ballots in the state's contested presidential election.
The court then went on to send the case back to the Florida Supreme Court-
This election is still not over... There is still no clear winner.
