Dems fail to win in pair of FL races

Dems fail to win in pair of FL races

Former Rep. Ron DeSantis won the race for governor of Florida on Tuesday night, defeating Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in one of the most closely-watched races across the country.

Gillum was attempting to become Florida's first African-American governor but faced a string of racist attacks from outside groups and DeSantis, who told Floridians not to "monkey this up". And U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democratic incumbent, trailed Republican Gov. Rick Scott by less than one percentage point, not enough to trigger an automatic recount, with the race still uncalled.

Under Georgia law, if no candidate wins more than 50 percent of the vote, then the top two vote-getters advance to a runoff election.

In recent days, developers Don Peebles and Jeff Greene each gave $100,000 to Forward Florida, a political action committee supporting Gillum.

Grammy-winning singer Rihanna is all in for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum receiving the last-minute support needed to help him become Florida governor.

"Just want to say", he said, "earlier this hour, we showed a graphic of the Florida gubernatorial race". DeSantis loudly objected to suggestions he was in cahoots with far-right figures or that his ties, unwitting he said, to white supremacists should be held against him.

In Colorado, Democrat Jared Polis was set to become the first openly gay man to be elected governor of a USA state, after NBC News projected him to win against Republican Walker Stapleton.

Democrats, playing catch-up after a net loss of 13 governorships and more than 900 state legislative seats during the eight-year Obama administration, fielded their largest slate of legislative candidates in more than three decades.

This race was supposed to be a blueprint for how Democrats could pull left on economics and cultural issues and win in swing states.

Now in another tweet, the President has congratulated Governor Ron DeSantis for being elected Florida Governor.

The governor-elect said he will "fight the good fight" and hopes to work with people on both sides of the aisle no matter who they supported. Fox News' Decision Desk still has projected that race as too close to call.

Gillum conceded at 11 p.m.as he spoke to supporters gathered at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee. Documents released under a subpoena in the months leading up to his election suggested that an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent was staying close to Gillum.
