Gillum Sees Money And National Attention Coming His Way After His Win

Arizona Senate primary run in Trump's shadow | Nation

During an interview on Fox News, DeSantis praised Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, as "an articulate spokesman" for those holding "far-left views, " but warned he would be damaging to the state. Florida and Georgia voted for Trump in 2016, while Maryland went for Hillary Clinton.

When asked if his win demonstrated a leftward push in the Democratic party, Gillum said that it showed that Democrats could run on their "values".

Gillum is now Mayor of Tallahassee, Florida's capital city. He edged out several Democrats in this week's primary, including former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham.

Trump quickly attacked Gillum Wednesday morning on Twitter, calling him "a failed Socialist mayor" and the "biggest dream" opponent for DeSantis. Gillum has moved on and said he can win the governor's race by attracting new voters to the polls instead of corralling support from the usual electorate.

Gillum said he believes DeSantis was "playing a bit of the race card there", adding: "He can be better than that".

It's a sharp contrast to the traditional strategy for Florida statewide candidates who play to the base, through messaging and policy positions, in the primary but then pivot to a more centrist message in the general election. "I am not going to apologize because I didn't say anything about race".

Critics blasted Mr DeSantis, a staunch Trump supporter, for comments he made in a Fox News interview that they said had racist undertones.

In favorability ratings, 45 percent of those surveyed said they have a favorable opinion of Gillum, and 27 percent an unfavorable opinion.

While Tallahassee and Leon County continue to have the highest crime rate in Florida, the total number of crimes actually decreased during Gillum's term. "To characterize it as anything else is absurd", his spokesman Stephen Lawson said.

Before hearing the statement, Gillum was on CNN talking about the divisiveness of DeSantis and Trump. And that hope now rests with a progressive candidate who could become the first black governor in Florida's history. Further, his Trump-endorsed Republican opponent pulled down many more votes in the recent primary although Desantis has been mired in controversy over his subsequent remarks.

In a tweet Wednesday, Trump says McSally is "an extraordinary woman".

"In the governor's race, there is massive gender gap with Gillum leading among women by 21 and DeSantis leading among men by 13", Ulvert noted.

Trump welcomed DeSantis's victory in Florida and criticized Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, the Florida capital.
