DeSantis Takes Lead Over Gillum in Florida Gubernatorial Race

Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum, the two men vying to be the state's next governor, will take the stage tonight at Broward College at 7 p.m. for their second and final debate.

Chestnut, who is black, said she believes the call was "specifically created to intimidate me and any other African-Americans that hold a leadership role". DeSantis asked Gillum during their first debate Sunday.

"Looking inside the numbers of the governor's race between Mayor Andrew Gillum and former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, we see shining examples of the problems Republicans face this year, not just in Florida, but around the country", Brown said.

Gillum was referring to a sizable donation DeSantis had received from GOP megadonor Steven M. Alembik, who, as Politico reported back in September, had tweeted out racial slurs against former President Barack Obama.

A new Quinnipiac poll released on Tuesday showed Gillum over DeSantis 52-46 percent with two percent undecided.

When asked about this by DeSantis during their October 21 debate, Gillum insisted that he "didn't take free trips from anybody".

Gillum admitted he had taken the ticket, but said he received it from his brother and thought his brother swapped them for concert tickets. "Andrew got travel money from the federal government because it was from an undercover FBI agent who is investigating him for corruption".

"He was asked a question by me, 'Did you pay for it?' He was indignant".

Gillum said Thursday he does not support Dream Defenders' position on Israel.

As for connectivity, there's the usual WiFi 802.11ac, but Samsung is really pushing the Galaxy Book 2's Snapdragon X20 LTE modem . There's a new Standalone mode, with which one can enjoy a PC-like interface even without a monitor or the "Book Cover" Keyboard.

While Gillum was mayor of Tallahassee, the FBI was investigating that city's government.

"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.

The documents were turned over to the Florida Commission on Ethics by Christopher Kise, a well-known Tallahassee attorney representing lobbyist Adam Corey.

Corey's assistant later responded with a list of people to invoice. In June, Gillum signed the left-wing group's pledge not to take campaign donations from the National Rifle Association and private prison corporations.

While the Hamilton tickets have gotten the most attention, the emails and text messages also outline Gillum's close connections to Adam Corey, a lobbyist who was Gillum's campaign treasurer when he ran for mayor.

Gillum's campaign pushed back on Tuesday against any implication that he had misled the public, saying that his brother, the previously named source of the ticket, was part of the "crew" cited in the text.

"In the state of Florida we have 99 issues, and Hamilton ain't one of them". "I'm simply saying the racists believe he's a racist", Gillum said in a retort that quickly went viral. Gillum vacationed at a luxury resort in Costa Rica in May 2016 with Corey, as well as another investor in the Edison.

Another text message between Miller and Corey outlined plans arranged by Miller for the trip, including a boat trip to the Statue of Liberty. "I never thought that I would receive something like that".

Gillum accused Republicans, who keep bringing this up, of racism.
