DeSantis Pins Hopes On GOP Turnout

Jewish voters hear last-minute warning about Gillum DeSantis Pins Hopes On GOP Turnout

Gilllum said he called DeSantis and congratulated him.

DeSantis stumbled out of the gate after winning the August 28 primary, telling Fox News that voters shouldn't "monkey this up" by electing Gillum, who was Florida's first black nominee for governor. "That race was swung by Donald Trump to DeSantis, who's now behind".

Republicans also scored a major victory in OH, where Mike DeWine, the state attorney general, defeated Democrat Richard Cordray, who served as the first director of the US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

More than 5.2 million voters cast ballots ahead of Election Day in the battleground state, and records show that Democrats have a slight edge.

Republican candidate Ron DeSantis has defeated Democrat Andrew Gillum on Tuesday to become the next governor of Florida.

Gillum told reporters he had visited the more conservative Florida panhandle on Monday to "let them know that you plan to work on their behalf also" if elected.

"Negative partisanship drove this race", said Alex Patton, a GOP strategist whose client list doesn't include DeSantis.

During the campaign, Gillum repeatedly launched accusations of racism against DeSantis, which DeSantis firmly denied.

Rush Limbaugh Speaks at Trump's 'MAGA' Rally in Missouri
In an Election Day Twitter post, Hannity insisted that he hadn't planned to speak at last night's event in Missouri. Hannity hugged Trump and, after lobbing his crowd-pleasing insult at the media, recited economic statistics.

If that line earned Gillum viral praise and national recognition, his indirect connections to an FBI investigation into public corruption in Tallahassee was a drag on his campaign, which at times struggled to explain Gillum's relationship with a former lobbyist and friend and his run-ins with an undercover federal agent. "All the way along this path", Gillum said.

The Democratic nominee is Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. And since DeSantis fully embraced Trumpism, Hume insisted the the president could be responsible for the congressman's defeat. "Republicans had a very strong candidate Adam Putnam, who is in the primary against DeSantis..."

Big election day tomorrow! The president also used his Twitter account to attack Gillum, calling him "a thief" who is "mayor of poorly run Tallahassee". DeSantis loudly objected to suggestions he was in cahoots with far-right figures or that his ties, unwitting he said, to white supremacists should be held against him. The president endorsed DeSantis in June.

But the Republican defended himself and his supporters against the racist label, while slamming his Democratic opponent for backing a major tax-hike proposal and wanting to expand government programs, including health care.

These races are interesting for different reasons.

But eleventh-hour developments in a state ethics investigation separate from the FBI's suggested Gillum is more implicated than previously thought.

DeSantis kicked off his post-primary campaign by claiming that electing Gillum would "monkey this up", before dealing with a number of racial controversies regarding supporters that culminated with Gillum saying in a debate, "I'm not saying you're a racist, but the racists think you're racist".
