Election 2000: Florida Secretary of State Files Emergency Petition for Extraordinary Relief with Florida Supreme Court

Aired November 15, 2000 - 7:51 a.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: We have yet another development now in this Florida recount story. We have just learned, according to the Associated Press wire reports this morning, that Florida's secretary of state, Katherine Harris, has filed what is called an emergency petition for extraordinary relief with the Florida Supreme Court. And in this petition, she is asking that the state supreme court takeover all election related court actions filed in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

It is the secretary of state's position that she wants the courts to make it clear that the election of the president and vice president is not a matter of local pleasure. There is no word yet on when the court might rule or accept this petition. And of course we'll follow this and any other developments as they come.
