In DeSantis-Gillum contest, race is more than a subtext

  • Andrew Gillum a Democrat would be the first black governor of Florida if elected

"Some of this is generationally driven. I mean, you name it", he said.

"It is not to advance a political agenda or pick topics that are personal to me and use the office to sue anybody I can come up with even if I don't have a legal basis to do it", Moody said.

Gillum has a narrow lead over his opponent, Republican Ron DeSantis, and it's unclear whether the latest development in the years-long federal corruption probe into Tallahassee's government will turn voters away. DeSantis did talk at a conference held by a man with white nationalist views.

"Gillum shined on the stage, won the moments in the debate ... and DeSantis didn't change the race", Schale wrote in a blog post on the state of the race. "It was disappointing to see it disintegrate into personal attacks, and it makes it hard for people who are encouraging civic engagement". DeSantis called Gillum corrupt. DeSantis interrupted the question, though, blurting out, "How in the hell am I supposed to know every single statement someone makes?"

However, POLITICO is reporting that newly released information from Adam Corey's lawyer indicates Gillum did not pay for the accommodations.

He also pointed out that the National Rifle Association endorses DeSantis, as has President Trump. DeSantis went after Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, Fla., for lying about receiving a ticket to the musical, "Hamilton", from an undercover FBI agent investigating his office for corruption.

During the gubernatorial debate broadcast on CNN this past Sunday, DeSantis hounded Gillum over the Hamilton tickets and his trip to Costa Rica, which is also under scrutiny by the ethics commission.

"I did go and see Hamilton", said Gillum. And I went to 'Hamilton.' I don't know what Andrew Gillum's story is.

Oil is taking a beating today, shedding more than $3
Saudi's foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir said to United States broadcaster Fox: "This was an operation that was a rogue operation". Forecasters such as the International Energy Agency already expect slower oil-demand growth for 2019 due to a slowing economy.

The two Florida Democratic Party county chairs who received the robocall Tuesday morning said they believe it is targeting black Democratic leaders in the state and is aimed at keeping Gillum's supporters away from the polls.

"All along they've wanted the people of this state to believe somehow I haven't deserved what I've gotten, I'm unethical, participated in illegal and illicit activity", Gillum responded. But I am not going to bow down to the altar of political correctness.

Gillum said he would have pushed for a stronger bill than Scott signed.

"When asked to return that money he said no", Gillum continued.

The victor of the November 6th election will replace Republican Rick Scott, who is barred from seeking a third term.

DeSantis replied, "Businesses will leave the state, people will lose jobs and we'll stop people from investing in Florida". More apparent proof that DeSantis is at the very least a white supremacy sympathizer has been leaking along the way, culminating on Monday with a fresh round of racist robocalls that featured monkey sounds in the background. Some people lost access, ' DeSantis said.

"Andrew's running on impeaching Trump".
