Outrage after Trump-backed Republican says black rival will 'monkey this up'

In nominating DeSantis, Florida Republicans continued a recent trend toward anti-establishment figures such as Gov. Rick Scott and Trump, both of whom won primaries in Florida against candidates who were well-liked among party elites.

DeSantis' bear hug of Trump may have won him the nomination but could cost him in the general, according to Stipanovich, a Never Trump Republican.

Asked if he's afraid of President Donald Trump's support for DeSantis, Gillum told CNN that his race is about uniting the state.

In less than 24 hours, the bigotry has already begun to jump out after Florida Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum secured the party nomination. He was supported by democratic socialist Sen. If elected, Gillum would be Florida's first black governor. But he had prominent elected officials - including Congressman Alcee Hastings, Miramar Mayor Wayne Messam and state Rep. Shevrin Jones, D-West Park, strongly advocating on his behalf.

A Houthi representative also said the issue had been sent to the rebels' legal office for review, but declined further comment. His team refused to indicate how many or which people or groups were on the list - whether on the government or rebel sides.

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

"Tonight, Floridians joined Andrew in standing up and demanding change in their community", Sen.

The DeSantis campaign clarified that his comments were directed at Gillum's policies, not the candidate himself. Orlando-area businessman Chris King also ran, and finished last. I'm trying to make Florida even better. "It's very clear that Mr. DeSantis is taking a page directly from the campaign manual of Donald Trump", who has been repeatedly criticized for remarks seen by some as racist or racially inflammatory. Afterward, he was mobbed by people who wanted to take selfies with the candidate, and his campaign staff kept pushing to get him back on the campaign bus to his next event. He's a gifted public speaker who did well in debates, often receiving the most applause, but the FBI is investigating Tallahassee city hall for corruption. Republicans plan to use an FBI investigation of Tallahassee's municipal government against Gillum, though he's not directly been named a subject. "He knows what he's saying, I'm not giving him a pass and I don't think anyone should", she said. Who's the person, in other words, who's watching interviews with Gillum and thinking, "He's black, and I don't like that, and he's also ultra-left-wing, which I really don't like - but can I really pull the lever for DeSantis in good conscience if he doesn't call Gillum a monkey"? "Especially growing up for them in the age of Donald Trump".

DeSantis' television ads were Trump-focused, including one where his toddler stacks bricks while DeSantis exclaims, "Build the wall!"

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

Final breakdowns of the vote are not yet available, but it appears that young voters and people of color came out for Gillum in droves. He reiterated his "full and total endorsement" for DeSantis in a tweet Monday. How much influence does the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic Party have? "He's doing things the way I like", Parke said. Harvard. Yale. Brilliant. He ran an incredible campaign. Marco Rubio shut down his presidential campaign and made a decision to run for re-election. He will be running against DeSantis and the NRA and billionaires who are prepared to write huge checks in order to maintain the Republican advantage in the nation's statehouses.

"DeSantis rocks!" shouted Jo-Ann Walker, a homemaker from Mount Dora, Florida. "He wants to make Florida Venezuela".
