Trump Rips Progressive Democrat Running for Florida Governor as ‘Failed Socialist’

In Florida governor's race Republicans neck and neck after Trump endorses underdog and Fox News guest

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg praised Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum (D) on Wednesday following his surprise victory in Florida's gubernatorial primary, saying that Gillum won due to his ability to capture the youth vote.

"It has zero to do with race", DeSantis said.

"We've got to work hard to make sure that we continue Florida going in a good direction". Sanders (I-VT) said of Gillum's victory.

Gillum, meanwhile, relied on a grassroots campaign in the big-money Democratic primary.

A few weeks ago, Andrew Gillum remained relatively unknown to Florida voters despite a historic bid to be the state's first black governor.

The results represented a major turnaround from mid-June, when a Fox News poll showed Putnam up by 15 percentage points.

"Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace", Mr Lawson said in a statement.

Gillum, who defeated former Rep. Gwen Graham and two other candidates, would be Florida's first black governor if elected in November.

Thomas Cook holiday couple's death 'not linked to carbon monoxide poisoning'
The company says its decision to remove 301 holiday makers from the Steigenberger Aqua Magic hotel is a "precautionary measure". THE DAUGHTER of a couple who died whilst on holiday in Egypt has said her parents were "fit and healthy" before their deaths.

"I have been really slow to try to think on it because it's too big", he said.

Gillum framed himself as the truly progressive candidate who could break Florida Democrats' five-cycle losing streak of losing the governor's office.

The 39-year-old son of a bus driver highlighted the power of his historic candidacy to rouse younger and more racially diverse voters who often sit out midterm elections. "He's an honest man and he's going to be the next governor of the state of Florida". She called for Democrats to rally in support of their new nominee.

Stephen Lawson, communications director for the DeSantis campaign, told the Miami Herald that it was "absurd" to describe the comments as racist.

- With the backing of President Donald Trump and more than 100 appearances on Fox News under his belt, U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis sailed to victory in Florida's Republican primary for governor Tuesday, defeating a longtime favorite of the GOP establishment with a campaign based largely around the president.

"Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis are both scraping from the bottom of the barrel", he said on CNN. "There's enough of that going on".

Trump posted on Twitter a full-throttled endorsement for her candidacy on Wednesday morning and claimed sweeping wins for his "Make America Great Again" agenda. "Ron DeSantis voted for Trump's tax giveaway to the wealthy, supported Trump's plan to take away health care from millions of Floridians, and seems more interested in defending Trump from a Washington television studio than improving the lives of Florida families". The term has entered widespread use in American politics during the 2008 election campaign, when Hillary Clinton was accused of using coded racist language against her rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Barack Obama. He called Gillum a "failed socialist mayor" who has "allowed crime and many other problems to flourish in the city". In just four of 36 races Tuesday night, a female Republican candidate emerged as the preferred choice of GOP primary voters.
