Backed Candidates Emerge Victorious in Florida, Arizona Primaries

Andrew Gillum to face Ron DeSantis in Florida governor race Andrew Gillum Bucks Projections, Is Florida Democrats' Choice For Governor
Alonzo Parks | 30 August, 2018, 15:31

A multitude of factors contributed to the win, which made Gillum the first black nominee for governor in Florida history.

He often said he was the only candidate in the race who wasn't a millionaire or billionaire. "People are starting to wake up and realize what we need for America and that is people who care and who have served and that want to make a better America where we work for it and it's not just handed to us".

"I was the only non-millionaire in the race and that was no slight to any of my opponents, but meant to simply say that it means something to have had the experience of what it meant to watch my mother and father trade between which bills they could pay before something got cut off", Gillum said. His surprise victory sets up a November showdown with Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis, a favorite of President Donald Trump.

To be sure, the Florida primary has gotten a lot of attention because of the nominations of DeSantis and Gillum.

Mr Gillum, who hopes to motivate younger progressives and minority voters who avoid non-presidential elections, would become the first black governor in the country's biggest swing state.

Fox News addressed the remark a few hours later.

"Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace the socialist policies that Andrew Gillum espouses". On the Democratic side, the Sanders-backed Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum won an upset victory over the establishment candidate, former Rep. Gwen Graham (D-Fla.), to win the gubernatorial nomination. "I think our total spending may have been six".

The notion that DeSantis would appeal to voters to reject a candidate on the basis of race is absurd. "I'm going to be here to do the business of the people of the state of Florida".

On Tuesday, Ron DeSantis was declared the victor in Florida's republican gubernatorial primary, facing off against the state's agriculture commissioner Adam Putnam.

While in London, Meghan and Harry live in Nottingham Cottage, a small property in the grounds of the grander Kensington Palace . A spokesperson for Kensington Palace declined to comment on this very important dog news, so we don't have any other details.

Florida's Democratic party leaders were swift to condemn the remark.

DeSantis spokesman Stephen Lawson said the 39-year-old candidate was referring to Gillum's political positions, not his race.

Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis, who won the GOP primary with President Trump's endorsement, drew charges of racism over a comment he made Wednesday morning on Fox News after Gillum's morning appearance.

Gillum, the charismatic former Tallahassee mayor, overthrew a crowded Democratic ticket with a progressive platform and the backing of Sen. Trump cheered DeSantis' victory on Twitter Tuesday night, writing: "Ron will be a fantastic Governor".

She defeated former state Senator Kelli Ward and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio after campaigning on stronger border laws and aligning with President Trump's tough immigration measures.

Tallahassee has seen a spike in homicides, but its overall crime rate has declined, although it remains the highest in the state.

In a state whose electoral votes went to Trump, the Republican nominee could use voters' support for the president to their advantage.

Gillum didn't make race an issue in the primary.
