"On top of the cloud of corruption surrounding his campaign, Gillum supports radical far-left policies like Single-Payer health care and massive tax hikes that would kill jobs and decimate Florida's economic progress".

His surprise victory sets up a November showdown with Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis, a favorite of President Donald Trump.

Putnam had always been considered the favorite to win the GOP primary with state party backing and big donations from the biggest corporate entities in the state, including supermarket chain Publix, U.S. Sugar, Florida Power & Light and Disney.

The congressman didn't wait to lob attacks against the progressive candidate, calling him "the most liberal candidate" the Democratic Party has ever nominated in the governor race the state of Florida. "That's what the political revolution is all about and Andrew Gillum is helping to lead it".

Although it is too early to project a victor in that contest, former Rep. Gwen Graham, daughter of former Florida governor and Sen. His grassroots campaign mirrors that of Ocasio-Cortez, whose takedown of New York City goliath Rep. Joe Crowley sent shockwaves through the Democratic Party earlier this year. Gillum has said he is not a target in the investigation.

"DeSantis will face off in November against the victor of Tuesday's Democratic gubernatorial primary".

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.

Tonight, Republican voters in Florida will nominate a candidate to run for governor, as term-limited Gov. Rick Scott, R, is running for U.S Senate.

Republicans have dominated midterm elections in Florida for two decades.

Murphy, who unseated GOP incumbent John Mica in 2016, easily defeated a primary challenge in the 7th District from Chardo Richardson, who was backed by NY democratic socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"This is a historic evening for Florida and it's clear that voters across the state are engaged in this election, reflecting the enthusiasm we've seen around the country", Nelson said in a statement.
