Andrew Gillum vs. Ron DeSantis: LIVE Florida gubernatorial election results

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.

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.

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.
