Contentious Gillum, DeSantis Race For Governor’s Job Coming To An End

Jewish voters hear last-minute warning about Gillum DeSantis Pins Hopes On GOP Turnout

Democrats picked up governorships in Kansas and at least three other USA states on Tuesday but failed to win high-profile races in Florida and OH, as voters cast ballots in three dozen gubernatorial contests across the country. Neither Georgia nor Florida has elected a Democratic governor in 20 years.

"Other than serving in the military, becoming the 46th governor of the great state of Florida is the greatest professional honor of my life", DeSantis said. Some Republican Party insiders, before Election Day, warned that the modeling of many polls predicted a too-high percentage of no-party affiliated voters in a race that would instead be more steered by those registered with the parties.

After several weeks of freefall, with DeSantis' connections to alleged racists constantly in the headlines, the campaign brought on Susie Wiles, a legendary Republican campaign manager who helped Trump win Florida.

A two-year-long investigation into corruption in Tallahassee plagued Gillum's candidacy. "We didn't win this transaction", Gillum said, adding that "what we believe in still holds true today".

Florida A&M student Jalen McClees said that regardless of the result, Gillum made him proud.

Grammy-winning singer Rihanna is all in for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum receiving the last-minute support needed to help him become Florida governor.

"You need to be able to work with the president", DeSantis said last month, saying he would be "better positioned to advance Florida's priorities" due to his "productive relationship with the administration".

DeSantis called Gillum a formidable opponent.

In one final twist, DeSantis, who throughout the campaign portrayed Tallahassee as crime-ridden and risky, will now be moving their to do his new job - right alongside the city's mayor, (still) Andrew Gillum.

On Sunday, a judge ordered Ramos to remain in juvenile detention for the next 21 days until a further court order, WFTV reported . Chitwood said the boy is one of the "top three sociopaths" he has ever encountered, calling him a "soulless individual".

"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.

The gubernatorial race was a study in contrasts: a straight-talking, unapologetically progressive, black nominee running against a Tea Party figure who released a campaign ad in which his young children built Trump's fabled border wall out of toy bricks. It was advice that DeSantis found hard to heed.

"Negative partisanship drove this race", said Alex Patton, a GOP strategist whose client list doesn't include DeSantis.

"My most significant and valued supporter is standing right next to me, despite what the media might say", DeSantis said of his wife Casey.

Youth votes, which went heavily for Gillum, soared, but not enough to overcome the elderly vote, which was dominated by DeSantis.

On Tuesday both men cast their ballots. "And we know we are going to get a good turnout on Election Day".

Republicans also scored a major victory in OH, where Mike DeWine, the state attorney general, defeated Democrat Richard Cordray, who served as the first director of the US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

He was joined by U.S. Sen.
