Jewish voters hear last-minute warning about Gillum

DeSantis, justifiably, thumped his chest in victory.

Part of the reason Gillum, who consistently led in polls, lost is that only two weeks before the midterm election, news broke that he had accepted tickets to see the Broadway play Hamilton from an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent posing as a real-estate developer.

In the end, Trump's candidate won.

His victory comes after a heated campaign to succeed Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who is term-limited. Recent surveys for the Florida race, which is one of Real Clear Politics' 12 "toss-up" gubernatorial races, have all given Gillum the edge. "That race was swung by Donald Trump to DeSantis, who's now behind".

Adding weight to his environmental policy platform was support from The Everglades Trust.

DeSantis might not have even made it to the general election without Trump's very early endorsement.

As expected, statewide Democratic candidates fared well in South Florida, where the party dominates voter rolls.

"The true story of this race is intense gratitude to President Trump".

Florida candidate for Governor Andrew Gillum cast his ballot for himself Tuesday morning, holding his young son in his arms while he addressed the media about his historic contest. Nonetheless, it still wasn't enough for Gillum to win the state.

"In Florida there is a choice between a Harvard/Yale educated man named @RonDeSantisFL who has been a great Congressman and will be a great Governor - and a Dem who is a thief and who is Mayor of poorly run Tallahassee said to be one of the most corrupt cities in the Country!"

The girl, charged with first-degree intentional homicide allegedly stamped on the boy's head, reports Metro UK . They quickly settled on the girl as the prime suspect, said Chippewa County Sheriff James Kowalczyk.

"From an economic perspective and a results perspective", DeSantis said, Trump's message is a "good message for folks".

"I voted for you", she replied. The FBI is probing whether developers were able to influence projects in the city by funneling gifts to elected officials. The Mayor had vehemently denied being a "target". Gillum has never been named as a subject of the investigation. Democrats ran up the score in South Florida and the Tallahassee region, while narrowly eking out an advantage among Orlando-area early voters. Voters came out in force on all sides. Each candidate would surpass the $50 million mark in fundraising before Tuesday's showdown.

But if the primary election's principles were any indication, money meant little, to begin with. Oliva endorsed DeSantis before the primary, when most state lawmakers were backing Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.

Gillum trailed by about 1 percentage point and fewer than 80,000 votes when he conceded. The gubernatorial finalists in 2018 weren't supposed to be there in the first place.

In this case, that appears to be right.

Gillum's past actions were scrutinized by the Florida Commission on Ethics.

A small crowd of supporters chanted, "We want Ron!" "This win by Ron DeSantis is a referendum to keep on doing what we're doing, because obviously it's working". I'm simply saying the racists believe he's a racist, ' he said.

"I would say what I've most been encouraged by is that he knows most what he believes", Oliva said of DeSantis.

DeSantis will take office on January 8, 2019.
