Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson take slight lead as Florida voter turnout tops 5 million

Republican Ron DeSantis will defeat Democrat Andrew Gillum in the battle to be Florida's next governor, Fox News projects. "I'm excited for the opportunities for Florida".

Tonight's festivities are set to go down tonight at Tallahassee's Al Lawson Center.

Caton tells OneNewsNow that a future "Governor Gillum" will be powerless against a GOP-led house and senate, but he could still use his office to oppose Florida doing business with Israel.

At a party with Democrat candidate Donna Shalala, who had wrested Florida's 27th congressional seat away from the Republicans in an early victory, party-goers looked a little glum despite their win.

Various musicians like rap star and Florida native Rick Ross have rallied behind Gillum. Though Gillum had a slight edge in the polls leading up to Election Day, and support from high-profile Democrats like former President Barack Obama, Florida has not elected a Democratic governor since 1994.

In Georgia, Democrat Stacey Abrams, 44, was vying to become the nation's first black female governor against Republican Brian Kemp, the state's secretary of state. Gillum has repeatedly maintained that he is not the target of the wide-ranging FBI investigation into Tallahassee's city hall and that he got the tickets from his brother.

Florida A&M student Jalen McClees said that regardless of the result, Gillum made him proud.

DeSantis defended Trump as the campaign closed.

"We could not be prouder of the way that we ran this race".

Fox News issued a statement today stating that the network "does not condone any talent participating in campaign events". In 2010, he was ordered not to broadcast his program as part of a Tea Party rally originating from Cincinnati.

The Ponte Vedra Republican pledged to veto any and all tax increases for the next four years, contending that a state's low-tax environment is its greatest asset for expanding the economy. We could not be more thankful for the support that was shown by each and every one of you all the way along this path.

Republicans also scored a major victory in OH, where Mike DeWine, the state attorney general, defeated Democrat Richard Cordray, who served as the first director of the US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Nonetheless, it still wasn't enough for Gillum to win the state. "Will you join us?", DeSantis wrote on Twitter. Oliva endorsed DeSantis before the primary, when most state lawmakers were backing Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.

The contest featured racist robo-calls by an Idaho white supremacist group, a televised statement by DeSantis that voters could "monkey this up" - though he denied it was a racist dog whistle, and pushback from Gillum in a televised debate. I believe the Dems could have won this race with a better candidate than Andrew Gillum.

"I would say what I've most been encouraged by is that he knows most what he believes", Oliva said of DeSantis. He was accused of accepting tickets to the Broadway hit, "Hamilton" from a group that included an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent during a 2016 trip he took to New York City as mayor.
