RGA Takes Aim at Andrew Gillum in Florida

Share

"Florida elections are always competitive, and this is a guy who although he's much too liberal for Florida, I think he's got huge problems with how he's governed Tallahassee, he is an articulate spokesman for these far-left views, and he's a charismatic candidate". Both candidates have been around for a while (Nelson's been a senator since 2001, while Scott became governor in 2011), so neither is an outsider. He edged out several Democrats in this week's primary, including former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham.

Since first becoming public, Gillum has repeatedly said he has been told he is not a target of the investigation.

Gillum said, "DeSantis can do the bidding of big business and big lobbyists and Donald Trump and his divisive rhetoric".

Gillum is now Mayor of Tallahassee, Florida's capital city.

"I'm trying to make Florida even better".

"Winning the Florida governor's race is a top priority for the DGA this year", DGA Executive Director Elisabeth Pearson said in a statement.

On Wednesday afternoon, in a Fox News interview, Gillum didn't directly answer a question about whether he thought the comment was racist or a figment of speech. "But I do believe the voters of the state of Florida are going to reject the politics of division".

The DeSantis campaign said it would be "absurd" to characterize his remarks as racist.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Report, Leon County did see a spike in murders in 2017 reaching a record high of 22, but nearly every other number was lower.

"There is a difference in getting some of the Bernie Sanders people to vote for you in a primary and then going to the broader Florida electorate and trying to sell that message", DeSantis said.

Gillum scored a surprise victory in Tuesday's Democratic primary for one the United States' most competitive races for governor.

DeSantis probably owes his primary victory to the strong endorsement he received from President Trump.

Republican McSally is running for retiring Sen.

Gillum predicts Trump's style of campaigning won't work in Florida. He was elected mayor in 2014.

Their policy differences are pronounced: DeSantis is pro-gun, and anti-tax; Gillum boasts about beating the National Rifle Association in a lawsuit and is calling for an increase in corporate taxes.

The FBI Field Office here in the state Capitol declined to comment on Gillum's request.

The Facebook group, which was first uncovered by a Media Matters researcher, featured content ranging from users comparing Parkland high school shooting victims to Adolf Hitler, to others saying that Muslims worship a religion focused on "pedophilia, sex slavery, rape gangs, and honor killings". "When they're talking to another individual they seem to be reluctant to say they're supporting Trump", DeHaven-Smith noted during a 2016 appearance on the WFSU show, "It's About Florida".
