President Trump criticizes Gillum in tweet, nominee fires back

Andrew Gillum, Ron DeSantis win primaries for Florida gubernatorial race

Gillum campaigned as an outspoken critic of the state's controversial "Stand Your Ground" law, which he said at a protest earlier this month "has no place in a civilized society".

Gillum spent the least of the major candidates and barely mounted a television campaign, but he won the hearts of groups that call themselves progressives and was given a late boost by Vermont Sen.

Gillum defeated former Congresswoman Gwen Graham, who previously represented Florida's 2nd district in the House and whose father, Bob Graham, had previously served as governor of the state. Gillum won the Democratic primary after being endorsed by U.S. Sen. After holding the post for ten years, he was elected mayor of the city in 2014.

Sanders tweeted his congratulations to Gillum shortly after his victory was announced.

He also added, "What's going to bring us together is our common and sure belief that regardless of where you come from. regardless of what side of the tracks you live on, that every single Floridian (ought to) have their fair and equal shot of the American dream". Also in the race was billionaire Jeff Greene, who spent about US$38 million of his own money on the race.

Andrew Gillum talks with a supporter after speaking to voters and public school teachers at a rally in Miami Gardens in August. He will attack Gillum's record as mayor of Tallahassee, which includes an ongoing FBI investigation of possible corruption at city hall related to development deals. Gillum has said he's not a target.

No, really. He actually said it. The front page of his campaign's website was festooned with multiple images of Trump-as was his final campaign ad.

Dee Centinaro remembers Congressman Ron DeSantis as a very bright, well-behaved and trustworthy first-grader in her class at Our Lady of Lourdes School in Dunedin 33 years ago.

The strategy worked, and many voters say that's what convinced them to support DeSantis.

United must beat Spurs to keep pace with rivals - Fred
But the impressive side will now face a big test in the coming week when they travel to Manchester United which will be their first big game of the season.

"With one tweet, that kind of put me on the map", DeSantis said. I'll forever be grateful for this summer spent with my kids traveling across this attractive state, meeting people from all walks of life, sharing ideas, and fighting to create pathways for everyone to thrive.

Josie Parke, 68, an interior designer in Coral Gables, said Trump's backing swayed her vote for DeSantis, too.

Trump doesn't know the meaning of positive momentum.

"Listen, I've been elected for 15 years, I don't mind taking a punch and I can deliver one myself", Gillum said.

Mr DeSantis campaigned on a pro-Trump platform and in one campaign advert encourages his toddler to "build the wall" with toy blocks - a nod to Mr Trump's planned border wall with Mexico. "Talking about Donald Trump, and reminding folks of how bad he is and how unqualified he is for the job that he holds, doesn't do anything to assure that they're able to make ends meet, it doesn't do anything to assure they get access to health care, a good education system, and 21st-century transportation, and a clean and good environment".

After Tuesday's primaries, only five states remain to pick candidates before full attention turns to the November election, when all 435 House seats and 35 of the 100 Senate seats will be at stake. Marco Rubio shut down his presidential campaign and chose to run for re-election. Bill Nelson. After an easy win in Tuesday's GOP primary, Scott now joins a bitter - and expensive - showdown with Nelson that could play a decisive role in determining whether Republicans maintain control of the Senate.

"DeSantis rocks!" shouted Jo-Ann Walker, a homemaker from Mount Dora, Florida.

Critics on Wednesday blasted DeSantis, a staunch Donald Trump supporter who won his party's nomination the previous day, for comments they said had racist undertones.
