Republican Ron DeSantis defeats Andrew Gillum in Florida gubernatorial race

Misfire’ MSNBC Airs Fake Graphic Showing Andrew Gillum Winning Florida Vote			Screenshots MSNBC Arr BNN		6 Nov 2018

Democrat Andrew Gillum, the 39-year-old mayor of Tallahassee, was aiming to become the state's first black governor against Republican former congressman Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis' win was a crushing blow for Democrats, who had pinned their hopes on Gillum making history as the state's first black chief-of-state and recapturing the governor's mansion for the first time in almost a quarter of a century.

Democrats scored big victories on Tuesday in governor races in MI and Kansas, U.S. states that voted for Republican President Donald Trump in 2016, while the hotly contested gubernatorial elections in Georgia and Florida remained too close to call. FiveThirtyEight predictions had showed Gillum 4.2 percent ahead of DeSantis on Election Day.

In recent days, developers Don Peebles and Jeff Greene each gave $100,000 to Forward Florida, a political action committee supporting Gillum. Trump told supporters at the rally that Florida, home of his Mar-a-Lago resort, was "my state also".

PSV manager Mark van Bommel was proud of the effort from his players and refused to blame the surface for the loss. Their keeper was fantastic but there was also a lack of clinical play in front of goal.


"I think if Republicans vote and vote in big numbers on Tuesday, we will win all of these races", he said at a rally outside the Freedom Pharmacy on the east side of Orlando.

Florida A&M student Jalen McClees said that regardless of the result, Gillum made him proud. Those issues, which were already bubbling up throughout the primary, were escalated by DeSantis when he went on Fox News a day after becoming the nominee to warn Florida voters not to "monkey this up" by electing Gillum.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and his wife R. Jai voted Tuesday morning at a church in the northside of the city.

If Gillum wins, he will be the first Democratic governor elected by Floridians in 20 years.

But in Wisconsin, Democrat Tony Evers pulled off a narrow win in unseating Republican incumbent Scott Walker, according to data provider DDHQ.

Ron DeSantis will be the next Florida governor, extending Republican control of the state's highest office to a sixth straight four-year term and proving that a candidacy nearly entirely about President Donald Trump can win the top office in a major state.

DeSantis had snagged an endorsement from President Donald Trump, which seemed to help him in both the primary and in November. "I am not going to let the media smear me", DeSantis said. Gillum has never been named as a subject of the investigation.

And the final blow came after a Desmond King 42-yard pick-6 with 6:44 to play that would have put the Chargers up by 16. White was selected by the Chargers in the fourth round in last April's draft and played in the first three games.
