Andrew Gillum to face Ron DeSantis in Florida governor race

Andrew Gillum to face Ron DeSantis in Florida governor race”

Gillum welcomed the support of Color of Change, Indivisible, Democracy for America, Our Revolution, the Working Families Party, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Women's March Florida, National Nurses Union, NextGen America, the Florida Immigrant Coalition and other progressive groups.

Rick Scott is expected to easily clinch the Republican U.S. Senate nomination, which would put him against longtime Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson in the November 6 general election. Florida's big ticket contests are for governor. He defeated a field that included former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, who aimed to follow her father to the office and become the state's first woman governor.

Meanwhile, in good news for both the Democrats and the nation, the deplorable Alan Grayson (remember him) has lost to Rep. Darren Soto in the Democratic primary in Florida's 9th congressional district. "Now, it is New York's turn".

One of the first ads DeSantis ran for the race featured the candidate teaching his children how to say Trump campaign phrases and reading stories about the president at bed time.

Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, made history with his upset primary win.

DeSantis rode Trump's endorsement to victory in the GOP race, underscoring the president's broad appeal in Republican primaries. Gillum has said he is not a target in the investigation. 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.

Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, who officially clinched the GOP nomination Tuesday night, appeared on The Ingraham Angle and is already taking aim at his Democratic opponent.

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

This momentum behind Gillum's win could also energize Democrats across the board in the general, and could boost support for Sen.

"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.
