Gillum spent the least of the five major candidates in his primary race and had the smallest television presence.

The heavily favored Graham, a party centrist and daughter of former governor and senator Bob Graham, lost to Gillum, who is bidding to become the first African-American governor of his state. He ran for Senate in 2016 but dropped out of the race when Republican U.S. Sen.

DeSantis, who spent much of his campaign on Fox News defending Trump, beat out Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, who had seemingly built up the run for governor his entire adult life after being elected to office as a 22-year-old.

Read why Putnam, who's facing the Donald Trump-endorsed Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis in the gubernatorial primary, is convinced he'll win.

Dr. Atira Charles of Tallahassee, center, reacts to early results showing Andrew Gillum closing on Gwen Graham in the race to become the Democratic candidate for governor, August 28, 2018, in Tallahassee, Fla.

Although it is too early to project a victor in that contest, former Rep. Gwen Graham, daughter of former Florida governor and Sen.

Gillum spent only $6.5 million on a primary where billionaire Jeff Greene spent $38 million and millionaire former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine spent about $29 million of his fortune.

Sanders tweeted his congratulations, saying, "Tonight, Floridians joined Andrew in standing up and demanding real change and showed our nation what is possible when we stand together". "That's what the political revolution is all about and Andrew Gillum is helping to lead it".

"DeSantis will face off in November against the victor of Tuesday's Democratic gubernatorial primary". Gillum has called on the man he is hoping to replace, outgoing Republican Gov. Rick Scott, to suspend the state's controversial "Stand Your Ground" gun law, and he supports a ban on assault weapons. He easily won his primary, setting up a showdown with Democratic Sen.

In November, Florida might have the highest turnout in a midterm election since the 1950s, according to McDonald.

Florida voters now face one of the starkest choices of the 2018 election season that will see plenty of stark choices in plenty of states.
