Backed Candidate Ron DeSantis Wins Florida's GOP Gubernatorial Primary

Trump-backed candidate wins Florida’s GOP primary for governor

Andrew Gillum addresses his supporters after winning the Democratic Party primaries for governor in the state of Florida, on August 28, 2018, in Tallahassee, Florida.

"On to November!" the President wrote as the votes came in on Tuesday night, as Mr. Trump has made clear he will do a lot to help the Gubernatorial bid of Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), and the effort by Florida Gov. Rick Scott to take on incumbent Sen.

In his powerful acceptance speech, he said, "I am overwhelmed". Gillum would be Florida's first African American governor if he wins.

In the crowded Democratic primary for governor, voters also considered former Congresswoman Gwen Graham, who was considered the early front-runner; former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine; Palm Beach billionaire Jeff Greene; and Orlando businessman Chris King. He wants a billion-dollar tax increase. "I'm trying to make Florida even better, he's trying to make Florida Venezuela".

Regardless who wins the Arizona Senate race, the state will make history this November by electing its first female senator.

Though Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez have had an uneven track record in their endorsements of progressive candidates, some have pointed to Gillum's victory as proof their campaigning is working. Gwen Graham and Republican Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.

The victor of the Florida governor's race will give his or her party an advantage in a key political battleground heading into the 2020 presidential campaign. That status was challenged over the summer by Levine, who used almost $27 million of his personal money to swamp Florida's 10 expensive media markets starting in November, far earlier than any other candidate on TV.

Gillum did well in debates, often receiving the most applause, but the FBI is investigating Tallahassee city hall for corruption. Gillum has said he is not a target in the investigation.

Woman says she was stalked by accused Mollie Tibbetts killer
Fox News has perpetuated the president's narrative, and Rivera is having none of it. "This is a murder story". Coaches wanted to protect one of their own: senior Scott Tibbetts, Mollie's younger brother.

DeSantis' television ads were Trump-focused, including one where his toddler stacks bricks while DeSantis exclaims, "Build the wall!" "I'm truly honored to represent people across the state as the Democratic nominee-and I promise to stand up for everyday Floridians and the issues that matter most".

DeSantis is close to the conservative pro-Israel community and was among those leading the congressional charge to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem - a pledge Trump fulfilled in May. Just as Barack Obama continued to enjoy the nearly universal support of his base even as dissatisfaction with aspects of his would-be signature domestic legislation mounted, it is possible to imagine that voters might be personally fond of, or at least not absolutely disgusted with, Trump even as they question whether he is improving their well-being and those of their families.

"I want you to know. that this thing is not me, it never has been and it never will be.

On to November!" tweeted Trump. Later Trump held a rally for him in Tampa. He also ran for Senate in 2016 but dropped out when Republican Sen.

But Gillum, who became the youngest person ever elected to Tallahassee city commission at age 23, recently garnered an endorsement by former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Gillum was on a shortlist for Hillary Clinton's vice presidential pick, according to one of John Podesta's stolen emails, but when he chose to run for governor Sen.

Chuck Schumer for party leader - and who is the rare Democrat who has praise for Trump, for his support for veterans.

Democrats backed Gillum, who received the support of U.S. Sen.
