Trump takes aim at Democratic nominee for Governor in Florida

The scenario cuts against the grain of a midterm election cycle that's been defined by energy on the left in other states, and it puts an added burden on Florida Democratic candidates to attract voters who didn't participate in Tuesday's primaries.

Implicitly denouncing the divisive and hate-filled platforms of DeSantis and President Donald Trump, Gillum declared at his victory party Tuesday night that his campaign is "going to unite this state".

"I am not surprised at what he has aspired to in his life", said Centinaro.

Gillum told the crowd that the race wasn't about him.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum didn't just shock Florida, he shocked the nation Tuesday, scoring a major victory for the party's progressive wing, putting himself in a position to become the state's first black governor. But it was there that Gillum found his academic footing and became the first of his parents' seven children to graduate high school and college. Having been blessed with great success, there is nothing more important for me than investing time and resources in addressing the problems of Florida's most vulnerable. He was elected mayor in 2014.

Levine, thought to have been the second most-popular candidate of the three for several weeks, finished a distant third with about 20 percent of the vote and lost his home county of Miami-Dade to Gillum by almost 10,000 votes.

DeSantis beat out Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, the preferred choice of more moderate, establishment Republicans, to secure the GOP nomination.

Levine and Greene dumped huge amounts of their own money into Florida's advertising markets, attacking each other and Graham, the daughter of former Florida Sen. His television ads were Trump-focused, including one where his toddler stacks bricks while DeSantis exclaims, "Build the wall!"

Donna Shalala, who served as President Bill Clinton's Health and Human Services secretary, claimed the Democratic nomination in Ros-Lehtinen's district.

In Italy it was usual for me, of course not against Inter, Roma, Juventus, but the last ten in the league it was usual. "I am not able to play with five defenders, because we are trying to defend by looking only at the ball", he said .

But the win also comes as the FBI is investigating corruption at city hall. Gillum has said he is not a target in the investigation. Nixon agreed, tweeting that: "Andrew Gillum just won his primary for governor of Florida!". "I'm truly honored to represent people across the state as the Democratic nominee-and I promise to stand up for everyday Floridians and the issues that matter most".

The strategy worked, and many voters say that's what convinced them to support DeSantis. "He's doing things the way I like", Parke said.

"On to November!" tweeted Trump.

DeSantis will now face the Democratic nominee to replace Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who can't run for re-election because of term limits and is instead challenging Democratic U.S. Sen.

Sinema's and McSally's Senate runs also have created House openings in Arizona, a fast-growing and increasingly diverse state where Democrats are eager to gain a foothold.

Gillum was on a shortlist for Hillary Clinton's vice presidential pick, according to one of John Podesta's stolen emails, but when he made a decision to run for governor Sen.

"Florida has proved that this is no ordinary campaign", said Our Revolution, the political action committee launched after Sanders' unsuccessful bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.
