The Florida Senate has declined to consider reinstating former Broward County elections head Brenda Snipes, paving the way for an ally of Republican Gov. Rick Scott to fill the remainder of her term, according to a memo on Thursday from Senate President Bill Galvano.

Snipes had announced she would resign her post on Jan. 4, amid an outcry over stumbles by her office during Florida’s recount.
