Republican Referring To African-American Opponent, Says Don't "Monkey Up"

Andrew Gillum to face Ron DeSantis in Florida governor race Andrew Gillum Bucks Projections, Is Florida Democrats' Choice For Governor
| 30 August, 2018, 17:01

The remark provides a controversial beginning to what will be a closely watched general election campaign for the Florida governorship, which pits DeSantis, who has closely aligned himself with President Donald Trump, against Gillum, a progressive backed by independent Sen.

DeSantis easily won the Republican nomination for Florida governor on Tuesday.

In the run-up to the election, DeSantis saw support on the Reddit forum for the Q conspiracy, the Great Awakening. "Trump is going all out for DeSantis because he gets 100 percent of his news from Fox, and he knows DeSantis has gone to bat for him, and he knows Florida is important", said Trump adviser Roger Stone.

However, despite Q supporters' presence at his events, DeSantis claimed yesterday that he has no knowledge of the conspiracy. "This is how I see this campaign", McSally said.

As the only non-millionaire in the Democratic Party, Andrew Gillum stressed his upbringing.

Gillum ran with the enthusiastic support of Bernie Sanders, as well as funding from prominent left-wing Democrats George Soros and Tom Steyer.

Meanwhile, in Arizona, Martha McSally, a former Air Force pilot and GOP establishment favorite, beat out more conservative Republicans in the race to replace retiring Sen.

McSally wasted no time taking on her Democratic opponent, calling the race "a choice between a doer and a talker, between a patriot and a protester".


Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum pulled off an upset in the crowded Democratic primary for governor.

Hogg, one of the survivors of a February school shooting that left 17 dead at a Florida high school, told The Washington Post that Gillum's involvement in the movement for stricter gun laws following the shooting inspired many of Florida's younger voters to turn out on Tuesday.

Gillum won every county with a major city in Florida except for St. Petersburg and Pinellas County, including huge margins in Jacksonville and victories in what was considered Levine's home base of Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey planned to name a replacement to fill McCain's seat after the primary. He held a victory celebration in Tallahassee Tuesday night.

Supporters at DeSantis' party in Orlando chanted "Ron! Ron!"

Putnam had always been considered the favorite to win the GOP primary with state party backing and big donations from the biggest corporate entities in the state, including supermarket chain Publix, U.S. Sugar, Florida Power & Light and Disney. Florida's registered Republicans are 83 percent white.

"Arizona voters shattered a lavender ceiling in selecting Kyrsten Sinema as the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate - and it puts her on-track to be just the second openly LGBTQ U.S. Senator in American history", said Victory Fund President and CEO Annise Parker.

"I believe in Trump's policies and while I don't love the way he opens his mouth too much, sometimes saying things that are not quite appropriate, I do believe that in his heart he really means well".
