Midterm elections results: DeSantis DFEATS Gillum in MAJOR red victory in Florida

Midterm elections results: DeSantis DFEATS Gillum in MAJOR red victory in Florida”

DeSantis was elected governor on Tuesday, defeating Tallahasee Mayor Andrew Gillum in a close race. Neither Georgia nor Florida has elected a Democratic governor in 20 years. "If he can't keep the city of Tallahassee safe, he can't keep the citizens of the state of Florida safe".

For the last few weeks, Real Clear Politics' average of the key polls has given Republicans 50 "safe" Senate seats and narrow leads in two of the seven "tossup" races (Missouri and Nevada).

Trump campaigned to help push DeSantis to a primary victory in August and came to Florida two more times to propel him past Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in the final days of the election.

The graphic appeared after a segment in which MSNBC's Joy Reid reported from Tallahassee praising Gillum's "energy" saying people were "excited" to vote for him. Gillum's campaign asserted that Gillum believed the tickets were reserved for him, but that he thought his brother paid for them. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., state Rep. Matt Caldwell, the Republican candidate for agriculture commissioner, and Ashley Moody, a former judge who is the GOP nominee for attorney general.

DeSantis called Gillum a formidable opponent. Attacking Gillum during an appearance on Fox News, DeSantis, referring to successes in Florida achieved by Scott, said "the last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases, and bankrupting the state".

Rep. Jeanette Nunez, a Miami Republican who is running for lieutenant governor with DeSantis, slammed Gillum for Tallahassee's crime rate, which is above the state average based on population.

"I'm ... the only candidate that can say I've never had my palms greased by an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent while I've been in office", DeSantis said at the Trump rally.

I'm going to start a new thread for the Florida Senate race, and throw in the gubernatorial contest too.

He advocated for stricter immigration laws, repealing former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, and has said that he would have vetoed the legislation that provided stricter gun control measures after 17 people were killed during a shooting rampage at Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Gillum, a liberal Democrat, and DeSantis, who has tried to imitate Trump in every way, provided voters with a pretty intense contrast.

Youth votes, which went heavily for Gillum, soared, but not enough to overcome the elderly vote, which was dominated by DeSantis. Hayes did not issue a correction on his popular Twitter feed, which has more than 1.75 million followers, nor was there a correction issued on his show's Twitter page.

He was joined by U.S. Sen.

Turnout was impressive both before and on Election Day.

"If these nontraditional voters, young voters, women voters who may have voted republican in the past but might vote democrat right now, if they show up and continue to show up on Tuesday, Gillum's in a really good situation", Zeldon said.
