Andrew Gillum: His victory and the road ahead

Andrew Gillum: His victory and the road ahead”

He was immediately blasted by Republicans as too radical for the electorate in the November general election, when he will face incumbent Republican Governor Doug Ducey. How much influence does the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic Party have?

Obama called for establishing a "voting rights division" within the Department of Justice (DOJ) to combat "voter fraud" and what he said were efforts to "discourage people to vote".

Rep. Ron DeSantis rode a robust endorsement from President Donald Trump to victory Tuesday in Florida's Republican gubernatorial primary. Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) is a Fox News regular who really, really wants to build Trump's proposed border wall.

In an interview Wednesday on MSNBC, Michael Steele said he would not give the benefit of the doubt to Mr. DeSantis, who won the Republican primary Tuesday with President Trump's support, for using the phrase "monkey this up" about the Democratic victor Andrew Gillum, who is black. "I think that pass expired last night".

DeSantis' campaign, meanwhile, said his words had been taken out of context and called the reaction "absurd". Florida voters know the race of DeSantis' opponent.

Trump drove home his support for DeSantis with a robocall to voters over the weekend and two tweets touting the candidate Monday.

The video shows clips of DeSantis praising Trump, each followed by clips of Trump saying or doing something that mocks DeSantis's statement.

DeSantis said Gillum was "articulate spokesman" for "far left views".

"This investigation has centered around an individual", said Gillum said on MSNBC.

- Bakari Sellers (@Bakari_Sellers) August 29, 2018To say that @AndrewGillum - Florida's first #AfricanAmerican nominee for governor - got where he did bc he "performed" better and that electing him would "monkey this up" is dogwhistle racism and defines the @GOP in the age of @realDonaldTrump - #Florida must & will reject this!

The first black nominee for governor in Florida history, Gillum also is the most progressive in modern times.

On the Republican side, DeSantis, a USA congressman from the Jacksonville area, stomped Adam Putnam, a former congressman and current Commissioner of Agriculture in Florida, with more than 56 percent of the vote.

"I think Ron is extraordinary in so many different ways", Trump said. His right-wing ideology went all the way left when he referred to an election of the 39-year-old Tallahassee mayor as a move that would "monkey this up". He was trying to boost his own chances in the race, but ended up helping Tallahassee mayor and progressive darling Andrew Gillum slide past them to victory.

In Arizona, primary contests were shadowed by the death of Sen. He also ran for Senate in 2016 but dropped out when Republican Sen.

Robust Republican turnout wasn't isolated to Florida, either. She'll oppose Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a moderate who was expected to win the Democratic nomination and did.

The result of its governor's race in this year's midterm elections will be a temperature test for voters' attitudes ahead of the 2020 presidential vote.

This is how he responded to the question on CNN, "Should there be individuals who have done anything inappropriate, what we said, they ought to be held fully accountable, but we pushed that issue past us in this primary".
