Backed DeSantis is Florida's GOP nominee

Andrew Gillum, Ron DeSantis win primaries for Florida gubernatorial race

Andrew Gillum addresses his supporters after winning the Democratic Party primaries for governor in the state of Florida, on August 28, 2018, in Tallahassee, Florida.

Trump surprised Florida Republicans late previous year with his endorsement of DeSantis, and he has frequently tweeted about the lawmaker, one of his staunchest supporters in Washington.

"I'll say this to Phil Levine and Gwen Graham. decriminalizing is a copout because decriminalizing is not legalizing", said Morgan, adding that the public doesn't care about marijuana laws.

Appearing on CNN after his victory, Gillum acknowledged his belief that Trump is "uniquely unqualified for the position he holds" and "dangerous" to the country, but said the thrust of his campaign has been focusing on the "everyday issues confronting people".

"While the mainstream media chose to write off Andrew Gillum because his bank account wasn't as deep as others, or his last name wasn't as famous, I, and people who had more of an ear to the ground knew Gillum could and would win".

For one, Uber purchased Volvos, retrofitted the cars with its self-driving technology and operates the fleet on its own. Uber has admitted its technology lags Waymo, and the crash in Arizona was a further setback in development and testing.

Besides Graham, Gillum turned back former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, who poured $29 million of his personal wealth into the race and saturated the state with 30 different campaign ads.

Gillum campaigned on a platform of Medicare for all and $1 billion dollars of tax money pledged to improve schools.

"I am not in favor in Florida, of doing recreational marijuana". He was elected mayor in 2014.

DeSantis is a former Navy lawyer who won his seat in 2012 running as a Washington outsider.

The victor of the Florida governor's race will give his or her party an advantage in a key political battleground heading into the 2020 presidential campaign.

Trump Reportedly Rejected White House Statement Praising Life Of John McCain
McCain said that the North Vietnamese staged the interview , making it look like he was being kept in a nice room with a big bed. He was tortured for days and made the confession after extreme physical abuse, a decision he regretted the rest of his life.

But the win also comes as the FBI is investigating corruption at city hall. Gillum has said he's not a target. Nixon agreed, tweeting that: "Andrew Gillum just won his primary for governor of Florida!". And so what I'm standing for is what is the everyday, lived experience of the people in this state. He secured his party's nomination on the strength of an endorsement from President Trump and allies such as Fox News host Sean Hannity. Her challenge now is to unify the GOP base behind her, especially those aligned with Trump and who did not support McCain's frequent criticism of him, while also reaching out to voters in the political center.

"I give you my word that whatever Andrew asks of me, I will do, because this election again is about Florida, the future of Florida", Graham said.

Trump surprised Florida Republicans late a year ago with his endorsement of DeSantis, and frequently tweeted about the lawmaker, one of his staunchest supporters in Washington. Suddenly, he was considered the favourite over Putnam, who seemingly spent his entire adult life building toward the run for governor.

Congressman DeSantis, who proudly boasted about his support from the president, easily bested state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, in a race called by The Associated Press about an hour after polls closed. Bernie Sanders, the independent from Vermont, and billionaires Tom Steyer and George Soros, will face off against Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis.

Sinema's and McSally's Senate runs also have created House openings in Arizona, a fast-growing and increasingly diverse state where Democrats are eager to gain a foothold. Marco Rubio shut down his presidential campaign and made a decision to run for re-election.

"Ron DeSantis can talk about race, and liberalism and whatever he wants to".
