MSNBC Forced to Apologize for Calling Florida’s Governor’s Race a Day Early

"That was a misfire. Don’t worry, I was pretty confused when I saw it up there, to see it myself.”

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes had to issue an on-air apology on Monday night after his show, “All In With Chris Hayes,” showed a graphic that had the Democratic candidate for governor in Florida, Andrew Gillum, winning the race for governor about 24 hours before polls close in the Sunshine State.

The graphic that appeared on Screen showed Gillum leading his Republican challenger, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), by six-tenths of a percentage point with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

“Quick clarification here,” Hayes said. “Just want to say, earlier this hour, uh, we showed a graphic of the Florida gubernatorial race. [It] may have caught your eye because our system had inadvertently populated some test numbers. Obviously, we do not yet have any vote totals here, the night before the election. That was a misfire. Don’t worry. I was pretty confused when I saw it up there, to see it myself.”
