Andrew Gillum celebrates "incredible feat" of clinching Democratic nomination for Florida governor

Andrew Gillum celebrates Andrew Gillum celebrates "incredible feat" of clinching Democratic nomination for Florida governor

Tallahassee mayor and Florida's Democratic nominee for governor Andrew Gillum is continuing to make waves.

Now, in an exclusive interview, Gillum is calling on the Federal Bureau of Investigation to tell voters what they know. Trump's guy, that [DeSantis] is echoing this talk", said Williams. I think the last endorsement I made was in the Alabama race", the Arizona Republican tweeted with a picture of the $100 check he gave to Democratic Sen.

Yesterday's Florida primary for governor had a surprise victor last night, and the race is getting interesting.

Ms. Abrams and Mr.

There couldn't be a clearer contest between pro-Trump and anti-Trump candidates.

In an interview with reporters shortly after his primary-election victory Tuesday, DeSantis said "I imagine that he will" when asked if Trump would return to Florida for another political rally to help the GOP nominee. "It's going to be really ugly before it's over".

In a statement from DeSantis' campaign made to Fox News, the campaign dismissed these characterizations as "absurd".

The primary victories set up a mega-duel on November 6 for political control of the fourth most-populous state between a Trump favorite and a Sanders favorite, who is seeking to become Florida's first black governor. Gillum has never claimed to be part of the Democratic Socialist movement in the left reaches of the Democratic Party.

Backed by progressive pacesetter Bernie Sanders and embraced by urban voters in the state's largest cities, Gillium is a fan not only of a $15 minimum wage and a Medicare for All policy but also of strengthening gun controls. "Especially growing up for them in the age of Donald Trump". Overall crime was down in Tallahassee previous year but the city saw a spike in homicides.

Abrams, a former minority leader in the George House, faces Brian Kemp, Georgia's secretary of state.

"Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace the socialist policies that Andrew Gillum espouses".

"This has nothing to do with color, gender, or any other identifying characteristic", he said. "And as younger elected officials they should both set an example of what a healthy debate can look like in our state and I don't think Ron did a good job of that that yesterday", Curbelo said.

Andrew Gillum was expected by many to be an also-ran in Florida's Democratic gubernatorial primary.

The hope for all three of this year's candidates lies in a surge of turnout from black and liberal voters similar to the one that carried Barack Obama to the presidency 10 years ago.

Gillum was never the favorite to win the primary.

Gillum spent just under $6.85 million and received 521,408 votes. Gillum prevailed in a state where blacks are about one-sixth of the population.

PPP surveyed 743 Florida voters, of which 41 percent were Republicans, 41 percent were Democrats and 18 percent were independent.
