Gov: GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis is elected governor of Florida

Former Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., left the United States Congress to run for governor and won the Republican gubernatorial nomination with President Donald Trump's support.

Andrew Gillum was poised to become the first black governor in Florida's history.

The races in Florida and Georgia were seen as a test of whether liberal candidates could prevail in Southern states, where centrist Democrats have repeatedly lost, by appealing to a coalition of young and minority voters.

"Florida's governor's race is a referendum on President Trump, perhaps more than any other major race this election cycle", he said. "This is a race where if there's one race if the if the Republicans lose could be laid at the feet of Donald Trump", Hume told the panel. Then last week, seeking to give a final shot of energy to voters in deep-red regions of the state, Trump appeared with DeSantis at rallies in Lee County and in Pensacola. Nonetheless, it still wasn't enough for Gillum to win the state.

Gilllum said he called DeSantis and congratulated him. Gillum called for a $1 billion tax hike on corporations, expanding Medicaid, imposing tougher gun control laws, legalizing marijuana, raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour and bringing a "conclusion" to school vouchers.

Barrett had a game-high 33 points in 32 minutes on 13-of-26 shooting from the field, including a 3-of-7 mark from downtown. While he did finish with 22 points and seven rebounds, most of his buckets came once the outcome was already decided.

DeSantis began the general election on the defensive.

DeSantis won with 49.7 percent of the votes, with ballots in his favour totalling 4,052,118 votes. "They're now using full bullhorns".

Democratic Party officials, who have accused Kemp of trying to suppress the minority vote, quickly denied the charge.

Meanwhile, DeSantis' campaign was plagued by actions some perceived as racist. "He inspired a lot of people, and he made a movement". I am not going to bow down to the altar of political correctness.

State laws allowing recreational use of marijuana have spread across the United States since Colorado voters approved one in 2012. Within a residence, adults will be permitted to grow up to twelve marijuana plants and/or possess up to ten ounces of marijuana.

Gillum replied: "My grandmother used to say a hit dog will holler". Gillum said the FBI assured him he was not the target of the investigation, but documents released in October placed him close to the action.

New statistics released Tuesday by the state Division of Elections show that more than 2.7 million people voted early, and almost 2.5 million people have voted by mail.

But Gillum, who is just 39, vowed to remain involved in politics.

Democrats, playing catch-up after a net loss of 13 governorships and more than 900 state legislative seats during the eight-year Obama administration, fielded their largest slate of legislative candidates in more than three decades. The Dream Defenders also support the "Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions" movement against Israel. Kamala Harris, all of whom campaigned in the state at Gillum's side.

According to NBC News, Republican Governor Rick Scott led Democratic Senator Bill Nelson by less than half a percentage point. Bernie Sanders, the self-described Democratic socialist. The president also used his Twitter account to attack Gillum, calling him "a thief" who is "mayor of poorly run Tallahassee".
