All Eyes on Florida's Gubernatorial Race: Will Florida Go Blue?
07 November, 2018, 22:00
With 99% of the vote tallied, MSNBC imagined that Gillum had secured 49.4% of the vote over Republican Ron DeSantis's 48.8%.
Gillum held a small but consistent lead in the available public polling throughout the general election campaign, but Republicans were confident their voter turnout operation ― built by former Gov. Jeb Bush and refined over the past decade ― would deliver them the necessary votes.
Ron DeSantis won the Florida governor's race on Tuesday, bolstered by the strong support of fellow Republican President Donald Trump.
Gilllum said he called DeSantis and congratulated him.
In one final twist, DeSantis, who throughout the campaign portrayed Tallahassee as crime-ridden and unsafe, will now be moving their to do his new job - right alongside the city's mayor, (still) Andrew Gillum.
DeSantis also came under fire for speaking at conferences organized by conservative activist David Horowitz, who once said the country's "only serious race war" is against whites.
The Florida race in particular appeared to be coming down to the wire.

"On Election Day, it's the voice of the people that roars", DeSantistold supporters at his election party and called it "the one day the elites don't call the shots ... and they don't set the agenda". We recognize that you know we didn't win it tonight.
"You should have a governor who can work constructively with the administration in Washington to make sure Florida is getting what it needs", DeSantis said.
Florida's more than 13 million registered voters are choosing a new governor and voting on a pivotal U.S. Senate contest. For the son of a construction worker and a school bus driver, it's a classic tale of the American dream, and a new chapter in Gillum's ambitious political career (he became the youngest person elected to Tallahassee's City Commission when he was just 23-years-old).
Last week, both former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump visited Florida to stump for candidates in their respective parties.
Meanwhile, at Florida A&M in Tallahassee, Gillum conceded defeat around 11 p.m., saying to a crowd of supporters that he "could not be prouder of the way we ran this race".
The race was among the most watched in the United States midterms, with Trump throwing his weight behind DeSantis and Gillum endorsed by former Democratic president Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
"Now, I'm not calling Mr. DeSantis a racist", Gillum said in response.
