Fla. Won't Extend Recount Deadline

Updated:
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Al Gore's advisers denounced as ``arbitrary and unreasonable'' a decision by Florida's Republican secretary of state to maintain a Tuesday deadline for certifying manual recounts in Democratic-dominated counties.

Emerging from an eight-minute meeting with Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris, Warren Christopher said the country election boards or Gore himself will appeal the decision.

He suggested that Harris' ruling was politically motivated. Noting that she campaigned for Gore's rival, George W. Bush, and is a political supporter of Bush's brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Christopher said. ``Her statement has to be taken into that context.''
