DeSantis wins Florida governor’s race; Gillum concedes

Misfire’ MSNBC Airs Fake Graphic Showing Andrew Gillum Winning Florida Vote			Screenshots MSNBC Arr BNN		6 Nov 2018

The GOP's continued dominance in the midterm elections poses a question for Democrats: Is Florida a blue state, a red state or a purple state? "I think it's really odd".

Yet on the night, both contests were won by Republicans - Republicans who had allied themselves closely to President Trump.

In a race too close to call, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is up by the slimmest of margins against Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum (D). And in a contest headed toward a recount, the president's backing helped Scott build a lead in his bid to unseat U.S. Sen.

Now Gov. -elect Republican Ron DeSantis received 49.7 percent of votes to become Florida's next governor, defeating Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.

Part of the reason Gillum, who consistently led in polls, lost is that only two weeks before the midterm election, news broke that he had accepted tickets to see the Broadway play Hamilton from an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent posing as a real-estate developer.

"I just hadn't made note of the candidates that I was going to choose for the Senate and House and I had made note of all of the other candidates I was going to vote for", she said. They don't want to pay for schools. He also said he intends to stay involved in Florida politics.

Duval and Palm Beach counties had not finished counting mail-in vote results Wednesday, according to the Florida Division of Election website. That's on par with the number of voters in the 2008 presidential election. The presence of a third-party candidate on the ballot makes that possibility more likely.

Broward election officials said repeatedly throughout the day that they didn't know how many mail-in ballots were still being counted.

Voters in Florida have a rare clear choice between a rock-solid conservative and a democratic socialist for governor. "I'm excited for the opportunities for Florida". Gillum called for a $1 billion tax hike on corporations, expanding Medicaid, imposing tougher gun control laws, legalizing marijuana, raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour and bringing a "conclusion" to school vouchers.

"We'll worry about history later but today, we're working to win". "But as my grandmother told me - never wrestle with a pig. I'd like to say it, but not really".

Morgan also pointed to another factor -- race -- as the reason for Gillum's downfall. He was charismatic. Charming.

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