Andrew Gillum Wants Ron DeSantis To Show Him Some Respect

  • Florida gov hopeful reportedly got Hamilton tickets from undercover FBI agent

Early voting started Monday in 31 counties, with more counties gradually beginning throughout the week.

Forward Florida "was originally set up as a general leadership committee focusing on improving life for Tallahassee and Florida residents, but its mission statement was crafted by Gillum. via city email", the Tallahassee Democrat noted.

"This campaign is powered by the people, as evidenced by the almost 100,000 small-dollar, grassroots donors supporting Mayor Gillum and his vision for Florida". DeSantis announced the release of his health care plan, tucked into his website a few hours before the debate, and defended the robust economy under Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, after Gillum said many Floridians still struggle to make ends meet.

The heated moment quickly began making the online rounds after Gillum tweeted it out on Wednesday, with some pointing out that politicians are often hesitant to directly suggest that their opponents are racist or complicit with racism.

DeSantis replied, "Businesses will leave the state, people will lose jobs and we'll stop people from investing in Florida".

"We've really seen a collapsing of our political discourse", Gillum said. I mean, you name it.

Juan-Carlos Planas, an elections law attorney and former Republican Miami-area state Representative, called the lack of reporting "a clear violation".

He also spoke at a conference held by anti-Muslim conservative political activist David Horowitz.

"How the hell am I supposed to know every statement somebody's made?" he said.

"I've heard him say at various speeches how he is supportive of Israel". First of all, he's got neo-Nazis helping him out in this state. I'm not calling Mr. DeSantis a racist.

DeSantis, an Iraq war veteran, was much more interested in talking about crime and corruption. "He has the highest crime in Tallahassee, the highest number of murders in history".

The FBI is investigating whether the city directed redevelopment funds at specific projects to favor friends and acquaintances.

Voter Registration, Absentee and Early Voting
He also complained that voting machines in some areas provide no paper record of ballots cast. I will vote in my friendly neighborhood polling place about three blocks from my house.

Gillum has previously said his brother gave him the tickets. Gillum insists he is not the target of the investigation, which began in 2015 and has yet to result in indictments. One of the packages was delivered to her Florida office Wednesday when it was returned by the Postal Service, and the former national Democratic Party chair said her staff acted with bravery in dealing with the threat.

DeSantis declared Gillum a corrupt liar.

Mike Miller was the alias of one of the undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agents.

"That is what corruption is ..."

"You want to talk about division?" he said.

The candidates also had stark differences on issues. DeSantis opposes new taxes. Gillum portrayed DeSantis as an unchecked supporter of charter schools and an acolyte of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. DeSantis defends them as a viable option for some parents.

DeSantis stuck to his guns.

"We're confident in the character debate", he said.

Korge said there's more than 400 people scheduled to attend a Thursday fundraiser at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables Thursday, and that excitement hasn't waned.

The candidates also diverged on health care.

The texts don't support what Gillum's campaign has said about the matter. DeSantis said former prisoners who have committed serious crimes should have to prove themselves worthy before getting the vote back.

In noting that turnout for the November 6 election has already topped 15 percent, the Florida Chamber of Commerce posted in a daily report that black voters account for about 9 percent of the people who have cast ballots.
