Russian hackers hit two Florida voter databases during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced in a press conference on Tuesday.

According to DeSantis, the hackers were unable to manipulate the election results.

"Two Florida counties experienced intrusion into the supervisor of election networks," DeSantis said at a press conference on Tuesday. "There was no manipulation or anything but there was voter data that was able to be got. Now, that voter data was public anyway, nevertheless, those were intrusions. It did not affect any voting or anything like that."
